Publisher Comments:

Diana Gabaldons brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in An Echo in the Bone, the enormously anticipated seventh volume, Gabaldon continues the extraordinary story of the eighteenth-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.

Jamie Fraser, former Jacobite and reluctant rebel, is already certain of three things about the American rebellion: The Americans will win, fighting on the side of victory is no guarantee of survival, and hed rather die than have to face his illegitimate son–a young lieutenant in the British army–across the barrel of a gun.

Claire Randall knows that the Americans will win, too, but not what the ultimate price may be. That price wont include Jamies life or his happiness, though–not if she has anything to say about it.

Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, Jamie and Claires daughter, Brianna, and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, have resettled in a historic Scottish home where, across a chasm of two centuries, the unfolding drama of Briannas parents story comes to life through Claires letters. The fragile pages reveal Claires love for battle-scarred Jamie Fraser and their flight from North Carolina to the high seas, where they encounter privateers and ocean battles–as Brianna and Roger search for clues not only to Claires fate but to their own. Because the future of the MacKenzie family in the Highlands is mysteriously, irrevocably, and intimately entwined with life and death in war-torn colonial America.

With stunning cameos of historical characters from Benedict Arnold to Benjamin Franklin, An Echo in the Bone is a soaring masterpiece of imagination, insight, character, and adventure–a novel that echoes in the mind long after the last page is turned.

From the Hardcover edition.

This is a series that you must read in order - the story is complex with many important characters, events and subplots. Each installment is over 500 pages - and each chapter builds on the story. I was lucky enough to discover the series in 2006, so I was able to read one book after another and lose myself in the adventures of Claire and Jamie.

The books combine time travel, historical fiction, and politics and unforgettable characters with an amazing love story. As Gabaldon tells the story of Claire and Jamie, she takes us back to 1945 and 1743 and to Scotland, France, England and "the colonies".

What would you do if you went back in time to a place where you run the risk of being burned as a witch for by revealing what you know?

That's what happens to Claire Randall as she finds herself transported from 1945 to 1743. Things that she'd taken for granted -- facts, history, basic knowledge are unknown to the inhabitants around her and are enough to mark her as a witch. Claire acts bravely and with care -- balances her good sense with her sense of what is right. Fortunately, Claire meets young Jamie Fraser. Claire wins Jamie's loyalty and protection even though he doesn't comprehend the mystery that Claire hides or the danger that she brings.

I can't stress enough that the books must be read in sequence. In this installment, An Echo in the Bone, Jamie and Claire are significantly older and are grandparents several times over but they retain their charisma and vigor. A respected physician and a member of the colonial militia in 1776, the revolution (a.k.a.Rebellion) force Claire and Jamie to action. The Frasers are forced to relocate and their travels introduce us to day-to-day life of colonial America. Gabaldon weaves in historical figures and events and we are treated to memorable intrigue and adventures.

What I enjoyed most was catching up with some of my favorite characters and those I love to hate. The best parts were the moments of tenderness between Jamie and Claire and the medical miracles that Claire pulls off with limited resources and an abundance of skill.

If you're a fan of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, don't miss this latest installment! And if you haven't yet read her books, if you enjoy historical fiction and fantasy/time travel - you'll surely love the series. Be sure to approach the books in the proper sequence and be prepared to settle in for a nice long read!
