Summary from Goodreads: The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge. Claire’s unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead—or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

Review: Ok, come on. Sometimes your favorite book series can let you down. I really didn't enjoy this book. It felt like a bunch of small Outlander stories jumbled up into a super long book. 1400 pages of garble. There seemed to be little story line and there wasn't much to hold onto as far as romance. It took me a long time to get through it, but I knew I had to if I wanted to read the next book which sounds amazing. A lot of wonderful thing happen within the last 5% of the book, but that's as much as you get. I'm disappointed and sad. Very sad.
