Readers have been anticipating the seventh installment of bestselling author Diana Gabaldon’s epic Outlander saga, a masterwork of historical fiction featuring Jamie and Claire from one of the genre’s most popular and adored authors, with bated breath.

Jamie Fraser, an ex-Jacobite and reluctant rebel, knows three things about the American rebellion: the Americans will win, as unlikely as that seems in 1778; being on the winning side is no guarantee of survival; and he’d rather die than face his illegitimate son, a young lieutenant in the British Army, across the barrel of a gun. Claire, Fraser’s time-traveling wife, also knows a number of things: the Americans will prevail, but the ultimate cost of victory is unknown. She believes that the price will not include Jamie’s life or happiness, especially if she has a say in the matter.

Claire’s grown daughter Brianna and her husband, Roger, observe the unfolding of Brianna’s parents’ history, a past that may be following them.
