From the author of the breathtaking bestsellers "Outlander" and "Dragonfly in Amber," the extraordinary saga continues.

Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement ClaireRandall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into thearms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then shereturned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragicbattle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her... andher body still cries out for him in her dreams.

Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him andstaying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny.And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face thepassion and pain awaiting her...the deadly intrigues raging in a dividedScotland... and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite--orforever doom--her timeless love.

"Triumphant ...her use of historical detail and a truly adult love storyconfirm Gabaldon as a superior writer."

About the Author

Diana Gabaldon is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the wildly popular Outlander novels--Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes (for which she won a Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize), An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart's Blood--as well as the related Lord John Grey books Lord John and the Private Matter, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, and The Scottish Prisoner; one work of nonfiction, The Outlandish Companion; and the Outlander graphic novel The Exile. She lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, with her husband.


More than 20 years after her trip to 18th-century Scotland, Claire Randall, now a doctor and the mother of a daughter fathered by a man from the distant past, seeks to return in search of her beloved, who is thought lost in the Battle of Culloden in 1748. Continuing the story begun in Outlander ( LJ 7/91) and Dragonfly in Amber ( LJ 7/92), Gabaldon weaves a rich historical romance with fantasy underpinnings out of one of history's most celebrated lost causes. Sure to be popular with fans of lusty romance, this saga of time-traveling lovers may also attract a fantasy audience.

In this triumphant conclusion to the time-travel trilogy she began with Outlander , Gabaldon continues the saga of 20th-century physician Claire Randall and 18th-century Jacobite rebel Jamie Fraser. The first quarter of this mammoth novel covers, in alternate sections, the 20 years the couple spends apart. Jamie is imprisoned, then pardoned and finally sets up shop as a (seditious) printer. Believing that Jamie died at Culloden, the pregnant Claire returns to her own century, reunites (unhappily) with her first husband and gives birth to a daughter, Brianna. But when Claire takes Brianna to Scotland in 1968 to introduce her to her true heritage, they uncover evidence that Jamie had survived. Claire determines she must rejoin him and once again steps fatefully through the stones on Craigh na Dun to find Jamie in Edinburgh in 1766. They wish nothing more than to lead a quiet life, but the kidnapping by pirates of Jamie's young nephew sets the couple off to the New World in pursuit, followed by old enemies and faced by new and vicious dangers. Gabaldon adroitly shepherds her protagonists through the eternal misunderstandings of the sexes, as well as those due to the different epochs in which they were born. Although this latest volume lacks some of the scope and grandeur of the previous two, her use of historical detail and a truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer of historical romance.

What more can I say - Diana Gabaldon is a LEGEND!!
After reading the second book, I couldn't get into this fast enough.
Now that Claire discovers that her husband lived after Cullooden, she must decide if she can leave the world she lives in behind (again) and find him in his world.
Of course, there are many risks in doing so and she doesn't know what kind of life her husband has lived since he made her leave him or if he'll be able to love her - time changes people. However, Claire can't live without knowing and hoping. There is only one way to find out......READ THIS won't regret it!!!

This book did my head in. Cross stich was great. Book two was average. Book three got on my wick. Then this one. ENOUGH already. Your editor needs a great big pruning saw. He's gonna die, then he doesn't he's gonna die then he doesn't this series is a single plot disaster and this book put me off forever.

I thought this book was too long and too tragic. Is he dead, isn't he dead, will he die won't he die. How many times can any one author repeat the same formula? I liked the first book Cross Stitch, although I have issues witht he whole bigamy thing. I got fed up after this one and haven't bothered with any more
