Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon
What if you knew someone you loved was going to die? What if you thought you could save them? How much would you risk to try?
Claire Randall has gone to find Jamie Fraser, the man she loved more than life, and has left half her heart behind with their daughter, Brianna. Claire gave up Jamie to save Brianna, and now Bree has sent her mother back to the Scottish warrior who was willing to give his life to save them both. But a chilling discovery in the pages of history suggests that Jamie and Claire’s story doesn’t have a happy ending.
Brianna dares a terrifying leap into the unknown in search of her mother and the father she has never met, risking her own future to try to change history . . . and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past . . . or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong.
Thoughts so far:
I cannot get enough of Jamie and Claire! I love how we are exploring Colonial America and I am awaiting what (or if) the American Revolution affects them at all. Seeing Roger and Brianna’s relationship develop further has also been fun to be a part of. This book out of the Outlander series does slow down the timeline a bit and it is noticeable, so it’s taking me a bit longer to get through them normal. Otherwise, I’m wondering how the rest of the series is going to pan out. How long will they be in America? We know that Jamie is buried in Scotland so when does that happen? We shall see!
