Description: Product Description
From the author of Outlander... a magnificent epic that once again sweeps us back in time to the drama and passion of 18th-century Scotland...

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland's majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones ...about a love that transcends the boundaries of time ...and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his ....

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire's spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising ...and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves....
Reviews: Annie the Superfast Reader (USA: NY) (2006/10/09):
This is the second book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, and a must read if you liked the first one. The court at Versailles in only one of the great historical events against which Jamie and Claire's love story unfolds, and Gabaldon raises the stakes and deepens the romance considerably.

Nina (USA: TX) (2009/02/04):
I don't read romances - but this is a superior series. You really get to know and love the characters. Even the length of these books is not prohibitive. Love it!

Heather (USA: WV) (2009/03/03):
I just finished this book and I have to say it doesn't disappoint. Diana Gabaldon takes us back to the love story of Jamie Frasier and Claire Beauchamp Randall Frasier. It is now 1968 and Claire has returned to Scotland with her 20 yr. old daughter Brianna looking for information. The book takes us on a journey through 1744-45 with Claire and Jamie and how Claire returned to modern time 1948. I will not write more for fear of ruining the twists and surprises in store for the next reader. I look forward to beginning the third installment of the Outlander Series, "Voyager".

I only posted a copy of this book in my inventory because it was an 'extra' copy! I am hooked on the Outlander series, they are very compelling. Gorgeous descriptions, heart-pounding scenes of war & intrigue, a gripping tale of undying passion, with ferocious sex scenes!
