Set in 18th century Scotland, Gabaldon's thrilling historical saga Outlander has bewitched fans worldwide. In this fourth installment of the Outlander series, we once again share the stories of Jamie and Clare as their romance travels across time into pre-Revolutionary America, where they attempt to build a new life together on the frontier of American soil.

This is the third time Claire has used the ancient stone to travel to the 18th century. First was when she fell in love and almost lost it in order to save their unborn child. The second, she reunited with her love but had to leave her daughter that would always feel fatherless. Now, Brianna, who is living in the 1960's, just might discover an obituary which will change her mind about her and her parents' history.

Diana Gabaldon was born in Arizona in 1952. Her novels are a blend of the romantic, historical, mystery, adventure and science fiction genres. Her degrees, including a Ph.D. are all in the biological sciences. She served as a full-time assistant professor at Arizona State in the Center for Environmental Studies, where she performed research and became an expert in scientific computing and databases, while also teaching university courses on anatomy. She has written multiple articles for computer science publications. With the finalization of her first book deal, she resigned as staff at the university. She lives with her husband in Arizona and has three adult children.

Diana Gabaldon’s fans will be delighted to find Jamie and Claire as spirited and endearing as ever in this fourth installment of this magnificent saga. Romance, history, and time travel blend once again as the couple builds a new life together in the wilderness of pre-Revolutionary America. Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the eighteenth century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, twenty years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history. Davina Porter’s narrative talent adds a special vibrance and resonance to Gabaldon’s complex, colorful characters. If you’ve experienced Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, or Voyager, you already know the length of the book is deceptive. None of them is nearly long enough. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Jen | 2/3/2014

    " While I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't one of my favorites. It became a little tedious at times. One of the things I did love was the growing relationship between Bree & Jamie, but I felt this eclipsed the original love story a bit. I love Claire and Jamie, so not seeing them together and having them supplanted by Bree & Roger is a little disheartening. But I still liked it and will continue the series. "
