Diana Gabaldon's Voyager is a New York Times bestseller and the third book in her bestselling Outlander series. Gabaldon uses her superior writing skills to weave historical details into this beautifully told love story, giving it life and depth. Her characters are strong, intelligent, and brave, and their story is one that ensnares you throughout the novel.

Voyager continues the story of Claire, the time-traveling doctor from the 20th century, and Jamie, her Scottish husband from the 1700s. It's been 20 years since the Jamie sent Claire back to her own time, pregnant and alone, while he went off to die defending Culloden. Claire never thought she'd see Jamie again, or that their daughter would know her father, but news comes that changes everything.

After all this time, Claire has discovered that Jamie did not die in the massacre and is in fact still alive. The revelation forces her to make a hard choice, leave her and Jamie's daughter in the present to travel back in time and find Jamie, or let him go. Claire isn't even sure that Jamie still loves her, and the long, strenuous years have been hard on both of them. Has their love survived it? Will he forgive her for being gone so long?

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Stephen | 1/24/2017

    " Having seen the TV Series of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Books 1 & 2, I had to continue this wonderful saga with her Book 3 – Voyager. I love the way Diana's Scottish/ C18th English/Colonial American humour, intrigue, pathos & empathy is brought to life in Davina's audio performance. I find the story enthralling & enchanting as Diana's web-like connections both within & between Chapters, Sections & Books both fill-out & surprise me from the Plot Summaries that I have already read of all the Books (up to No. 8). This confirmed my decision of how much I needed to get these audiobooks in order to find some approximation of the TV Series' version of Book 1 & 2. I both can't wait & dearly hope that the visualisations of Books 3-8 will encompass the settings, characters, actions & emotions revealed in the audiobooks in their TV series that drew me in so inextricably with the first 2 Books' TV series. "

    " After the devastatingly emotional ending of Dragonfly in Amber, I was anxious to get back to this world to find out what happened to Clare and Jamie. I was not disappointed!! Voyager brought me back to many of the things that I loved in Outlander and moved the plot and characters lovingly forward with humor and adventure and respect that they deserve. Two Thumbs Up!! "
