In her now classic novel
Outlander, i>Diana Gabaldon told the story of Claire Randall, an
English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone circle in the
'scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears . . . into 1743.
The story unfolded from there in seven bestselling novels, and
Cnn has called it &ldquo;a grand adventure written on a
canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human
spirit across [centuries].&rdquo; Now the story continues in
Written in My Own Heart&rsquo;s Blood i>.
1778 :France declares war on Great Britain, the British army leaves
Philadelphia, and George Washington&rsquo;s troops leave Valley
Forge in pursuit. At this moment, Jamie Fraser returns from a presumed
watery grave to discover that his best friend has married his wife,
his illegitimate son has discovered (to his horror) who his father
really is, and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to marry a Quaker.
Meanwhile, Jamie&rsquo;s wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are
busy picking up the pieces.
The Frasers can only be
thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in
twentieth-century 'scotland. Or not. In fact, Brianna is&#160;
searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to
learn her family&rsquo;s secrets.
Her husband, Roger, has ventured into the past in search of the
missing boy . . . never suspecting that the object of his quest has
not left the present. Now, with Roger out of the way, the kidnapper
can focus on his true target :Brianna herself.
