Since the initial
publication of Outlander fifteen years ago, Diana Gabaldon’s New York
Times? bestselling saga has won the hearts of readers the world over—and
sold more than twelve million books. Now, A Breath of Snow and
Ashes continues the extraordinary story of eighteenth-century Scotsman
Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century wife, Claire.
The year is 1772,
and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has
already been lit. Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods
of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest. With chaos brewing, the
governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the
colony for king and crown. But from his wife, Jamie knows that, three years
hence, the shot heard round the world will be fired and the result will be
independence—with those loyal to the king either dead or in exile.
And then there’s the matter of a tiny clipping
from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie’s
death—along with his kin. For once, he hopes that his time-traveling
family may be wrong about the future. Download and start listening now!
