Dragonfly in Amber
Dragonfly in Amber is the second book in the Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon. Centered on time-traveling 20th-century nurse Claire Randall and her 18th century Scottish Highlander warrior husband Jamie Fraser, the books contain historical fiction, romance, adventure and fantasy. This installment chronicles Claire and Jamie's efforts to prevent the Jacobite rising that Claire knows will end disastrously for the Scots.
From the author of Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber is a magnificent epic that again sweeps us back in time to the drama and passion of 18th-century Scotland…
For twenty years, Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now, she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here, Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth. The truth about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones. The truth about a love that transcends the boundaries of time. About James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to his dangers.
Now, a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna. Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart and a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising. It is a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.
