Another epic read following Jamie and Claire living on Fraser's Ridge, nth Carolina 1775-6, preparing for the revolution.
Much adventure; rape, murder, scandal, lying, kidnapping, illness, deaths and births. ( )

Yep, after 6 books it's still a good story. Can't always say that about these long tales. And that was a long one!!! Still, only took 11 days to knock it out and it was 1158 pages so 100 pages a day meant I was sucked in good!!! ( )

Epigraph
Information from the Dutch Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
De mensheid ziet in vele dingen de hand van God, tijd is daar één van. Leven volgt op een volgend leven, daar is geen einde aan. Men is doordrongen van zijn macht, want niets immers - bergen nog legers - kan het opnemen tegen tijd?
Natuurlijk, tijd heelt alle wonden. Geef iets genóég tijd en alles komt goed: pijn wordt geabsorbeerd, ontberingen vergeten, verlies krijgt een plaats.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Onthoudt dat gij van stof zijt, mens, en tot stof zult hij wederkeren.
En als Tijd verbonden is met God, moet Herinnering gelijk staan aan de Duivel
Dedication
This Book is Dedicated to Charles Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson, Dorothy L. Sayers, John D. MacDonald and P.G. Wodehouse
