THE SIXTH NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES.
Diana Gabaldon is the author of the international bestselling Outlander novels and Lord John Grey series.She says that the Outlander series started by accident- 'I decided to write a novel for practice in order to learn what it took to write a novel, and to decide whether I really wanted to do it for real. I did - and here we all are trying to decide what to call books that nobody can describe, but that fortunately most people seem to enjoy.'And enjoy them they do - in their millions, all over the world. Published in 42 countries and 38 languages, in 2014 the Outlander novels were made into an acclaimed TV series starring Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser and Caitriona Balfe as Claire. Seasons three and four are currently in production. Diana lives with her husband and dogs in Scottsdale, Arizona, and is currently at work on her ninth Outlander novel.
"Gripping." * OK! *
"The sixth instalment of the adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser, already number one on the bestseller list, is a whopping 980 pages of action-packed escapism. It also has surprisingly melancholy and insightful views on the experience of growing old and dealing with the losses that entails... One of the things that sets Gabaldon apart from other romance writers is exhaustive research of the times in which her characters live, so evident in her attention to period detail.... plot lines and stand-alone yarns are expertly woven together with the overall theme of impending doom and the question of predetermination." * The Toronto Star *
"Fans of Diana Gabaldon's popular Outlander series have another rousing historical-science-fiction-romance novel to savour in A Breath of Snow and Ashes... For fans, this book is another slam-dunk hit. It's a massive, long-lasting source of entertainment." * The Gazette (Montreal) *
"Riveting. Gabaldon has a true storyteller's voice." * The Globe and Mail *
"Triumphant. . . . Her use of historical detail and truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." * Publishers Weekly *
