Bad news for Jamie Fraser: he's sent to the American Colonies to help quell a rebellion, but he knows from his time-traveling wife, Claire, that the Colonists win. Sixth in an ever-popular series. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
"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

slam-dunk hit. It's a massive, long-lasting source of
entertainment." -- The Gazette (Montreal) Praise for Diana
