It’s June 1778, and the world appears to be flipping inside out. The British Army is withdrawing from Philadelphia, with George Washington pursuing, and it appears that the rebels may triumph for the first time. However, even more chaotic revolutions must be accommodated for Claire Fraser and her family. Jamie, her ex-husband, has returned from the dead, demanding to know why she married his best friend, Lord John Grey, while he was gone. Lord John’s son, the ninth Earl of Ellesmere, is equally astounded to learn that his birth father is the recently resurrected Jamie Fraser, and Jamie’s nephew Ian Murray learns that his new-found cousin has a crush on the woman who has just consented to marry him.

And, while Claire is scared that one of her husbands is ready to murder the other, her descendants suffer even more dire circumstances in the twentieth century. Her daughter Brianna is attempting to defend her son from a violent criminal bent on murder, while her husband Roger has vanished into the past.
