Wow that was long. ( )

Jamie and Claire and comfortable with each other again. Now begins the blossoming story of Brianna Fraser and Roger MacKenzie. It was pins and needles for a time, but the book ends in strength.

Another thing to be noted is that it was revealed that Jamie's headstone was a ruse only to lead Claire to Jack Randall, but was about the fire in the newspaper? Only the future will tell. On to the next book, The Fiery Cross. ( )

Claire and Jamie are making a life in colonial America. Briana acts recklessly going back in time to meet Jamie. Roger goes after her. I found Briana annoying. Roger cares so much more for Briana than she does for him. I preferred it when they were in Scotland. ( )

I started this series when it first came out because I kept hearing how great it was. And while I did enjoy the first novel I enjoyed it less and less with each subsequent book. Reading these books has become more habit than anything else. I really have not enjoyed the last few books and this one was no exception. I sort of feel obliged at this point to see the story to its conclusion so it would be nice if it would finally conclude. ( )

Despite some boring bits in the beginning, it was another great book in the series. ( )

This book turned out to have a lot to do with fathers, and so it's for my own father, Tony Gabaldon, who also tells stories.
