Spanning continents and centuries, Gabaldon has created a work that is both brilliant and breathtaking.
Twice Claire has used a stone circle to travel back in time to the 18th century. In the first time travel, she fell in love with a Scottish warrior, who would later become her husband. They married, and he became her first love. But she returned to 1940 to save her unborn child. She was able to reunite with her lost love 20 years later but left behind the daughter that he wouldn’t ever see. From her 1960s vantage point, Brianna has discovered a disturbing obituary, and she will risk everything to change history.
