In this new epic of imagination, time travel, and adventure, Diana Gabaldon continues the riveting story begun in Outlander.
Jamie Fraser is an eighteenth-century Highlander, an ex-Jacobite traitor, and a reluctant rebel in the American Revolution. His wife, Claire Randall Fraser, is a surgeon—from the twentieth century. What she knows of the future compels him to fight. What she doesn’t know may kill them both.

With one foot in America and one foot in Scotland, Jamie and Claire’s adventure spans the Revolution, from sea battles to print shops, as their paths cross with historical figures from Benjamin Franklin to Benedict Arnold.

Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, their daughter, Brianna, and her husband experience the unfolding drama of the Revolutionary War through Claire’s letters. But the letters can’t warn them of the threat that’s rising out of the past to overshadow their family.

Diana Gabaldon’s sweeping Outlander saga reaches new heights in An Echo in the Bone.

Quotes & Awards

  • “For six episodes, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander saga has kept readers enthralled with its time-travel romance about eighteenth-century warrior Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century wife Claire Randall. In this latest full-bodied installment, nearly a thousand pages long, this devoted pair must personally experience the American rebellion, a historical event with a foreordained conclusion, but their knowledge cannot guarantee their safety or the safety of those they love. An Echo in the Bone is a standalone historical romance that meets the high standards of this series.”

    Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review

  • “All you’ve come to expect from Gabaldon…adventure, history, romance, fantasy.” 

    Arizona Republic 

  • “Since Outlander readers have become invested in the lives of Jamie Fraser and his wife, Claire, these are not simply fictional characters. They have come alive through Gabaldon’s incredible storytelling. The eagerly awaited seventh volume offers fans a sweeping tale filled with breathtaking adventure and rich and accurate historical details. But it is the powerful human relationships that transcend time and space that move Gabaldon’s work out of the ordinary. This is nothing short of a masterpiece.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

  • “The seventh installment of Gabaldon’s popular Outlander series will not disappoint her fans…Readers anticipating a lengthy visit with Jamie and Claire may be vexed to find that a goodly chunk of the story is devoted to William; but his adventures include all the thrilling elements Outlander addicts have come to crave. Relish this book—it might be a long stretch until the next fix.”

    Library Journal

  • An Echo in the Bone is a wonderful, adventure-filled, emotion-packed reunion with the Frasers.” 

    Romance Reviews Today

  • “Pages fly by and leave readers hungering to know what comes next for a set of engagingly colorful characters who by now feel like old friends.” 


  • “Davina Porter’s virtuoso narration clarifies the leaps between the three major story lines…Thanks to Porter’s superb voicings, especially of sharp-witted Claire and brawny Jamie, the listener follows the potentially bewildering episode changes. Porter excels in voicing their son-in-law’s raspy attempts to sing with a throat injury, due to an unsuccessful hanging, and improves a few beleaguered narrative sections with snappy pacing…Delightful.” 


  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • Finalist for the 2009 RT Award for Historical Fiction

    " Diana Galbaldon began this epic adventure with Claire and Jamie with Outlander. A time traveling story that is riveting. She is a very good writer and pays particular attention on detail. You feel as if you were there. A note to books on tape listeners - start from Outlander and work your way, in order of publishing. Do not skip any. It's worth the effort. "
