Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone (2021)
Despite the fact that the past looks to be the safest place to be, it is simultaneously the most deadly period in human history…
The Jacobite Rising in 1746 tore Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall apart, and it took them twenty years to reunite. Now, the American Revolution appears to be on the verge of doing the same thing.
On Fraser’s Ridge in 1779, Claire and Jamie have finally reunited with their daughter Brianna, her husband Roger, and their children. The Frasers had considered it impossible to bring their entire family together.
The impacts of war can be felt even in the North Carolina backcountry. Tensions are high in the Colonies, and local sentiments are boiling like Hell’s teakettle. Jamie is well aware that his tenants’ loyalties are divided, and that the fight will soon be at his doorstep.
Brianna and Roger are concerned about the threats that drove them to flee the twentieth century. They sometimes wonder if risking the dangers of the 1700s—disease, starvation, and approaching war, to name a few—was the best option for their family.
In the not-too-distant future, young William Ransom is still trying to come to terms with the revelation of his true father’s identity—and hence his own—while Lord John Grey has reconciliations to make and perils to face…
On behalf of both his son and himself.
In the meantime, the Revolutionary War approaches Fraser’s Ridge at a rapid pace. And now that the family has reunited, Jamie and Claire have more on the line than they have in the past.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon returns with the newest novel in the epic Outlander series.
The past may seem the safest place to be . . . but it is the most dangerous time to be alive. . . .
