Synopsis

In her now classic novel Outlander, 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 “a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries].” Now the story continues in Written in My Own Heart’s Blood.
 
1778: France declares war on Great Britain, the British army leaves Philadelphia, and George Washington’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’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  searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to learn her family’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.
 
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other.

This was really well written and gripping from the first page to the last. It is another wortby addition to the fascinating Outlander saga. The only bad thing is having to wait for the next book to come out.

Outlander Series
May 2nd, 2015
This is one of the best books (series) I have read to date. Throughout the series for the most part I did not want to stop reading, I had to find out what was happening to Jamie and Clair! I did find a few spots repetitive (where she stopped to describe something from a previous book). I loved the way Dianne ended the series! But it would have been nice to have an end for William as well. Loved this!

Excellent read. Diana has outdone her skill for storytelling in this book. She richly weaves together the past present and future to keep the reader engaged with the characters and storylines. She makes us care about them and vividly brings to life the times the characters find themselves in. Highly recommend!

Great Read
March 31st, 2015
I absolutely love this series, the author has woven a tale through the ages. The first book in the series still remains my favorite but this one did not disappoint, I personally could not put it down and read it in 2 days. The only reason this book does not rate 5 stars in my opinion is that I found the ending rather abrupt, it felt like there was a great gap of time that was missing and unaccounted for, I can only hope that means she will be releasing another book in the series.

*I loved this book, just as I loved all of Diana Gabaldon's books. I own the series and have read all of them twice and am now watching the series on TV and can't wait for the next series to start. I hope she brings us more in the lives of Claire, Jaimie, etc. I still have more of the Lord John books to acquire and read.

Rereading this book is a great joy, as I found that I had missed important details in my first reading. I have read the whole series many times now and will probably read it many more. I find that this series helps me deal with my losses by keeping my mind filled with the story of Claire and Jamie and off dwelling on things I can not change in my own life off loss. Thank you Diana Gabaldon for your great talent of story telling! I look forward to the next addition in the Outlander series!!
