The year is 1771, and war is on the horizon. Jamie Fraser’s wife informs him of this. As much as he tries not to accept it, he must, since hers is a gift of horrible prophesy, a time-certain traveler’s knowledge. Claire’s unusual perspective on the future has brought him both danger and salvation in the past; her awareness of the impending revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the difficult years ahead or unleash an inferno that would leave their lives in ashes.
