    Summary

    Prior to Culloden, the Jacobite Rebels fought in a number of battles - some of which were successful, and some not.

    This story begins in Fort Augustus. Fort Augustus emerged as a major military base due to its position at the south-west end of Loch Ness near the intersection of key military roads to Fort William and Fort George (Inverness Castle). Built in 1729, it was considered to be a state of the art facility in its day. It had been built following the appointment of General George Wade as Commander in Chief of the army in North Britain in July 1724.

    Summary

    He was dying and for all my medical training there was absolutely nothing I could do to save him. He was the one constant in my life. The one person who knew me inside and out. He was my sun and everything in my life revolved around him. He had kept me safe when I had no one else . He was my knight in shining armour. He was my protector. He was my rock and my fortress and without him I would be truly alone. He was all that was good in my life. He was my heart.

    Summary

    Janet Ellen Fraser Murray wasn't ever going to slay dragons, sail off to foreign lands or even--by the Blessed St. Oda--learn a trade like her twin, Michael.

    No one had ever seriously asked for her opinion. And, she'd often been overshadowed by her louder (and taller!) brothers and sisters.

    Life at Lallybroch was simple, enlivened only by stories of her beloved Uncle Jamie and Claire, his first wife.

    Things change when she learns her uncle is coming home, faery wife in tow. And, as events unfold at Lallybroch, Janet realizes her childhood idols are only human, like her.

    Summary

    Claire Beauchamp is a military nurse serving in France during the Great War of 1914-18. In 1915 she works with Jenny Fraser and meets Jamie Fraser, a meeting which will have a profound impact on her life.

    2018 is the centenary of the end of the Great War, aka World War I. Two years ago, I visited Te Papa’s Gallipoli: The Scale of our War exhibition in Wellington, New Zealand. The exhibition was developed by Te Papa and the men behind The Lord of the Rings film trilogy – Sir Peter Jackson and Sir Richard Taylor. It was mind blowing. More recently, I was deeply touched by the work of British artist Guy Denning, who has spent a year designing and producing 112 life size drawings of soldiers who never returned from the Great War to the village of La Feuillee in France.

    I’ll have a fair bit of research to do for this one, so my postings might not be as frequent as for 'Head of A Woman' and 'A Safe Place', but I hope you’ll find it interesting and worth reading.

    Summary

    Prompt #1 Imagine that after Helwater Jamie comes home and Jenny insists he marry Mary McNab instead of Laoghaire. Jamie finally relents and they set up a happy home filled with respect that develops into real, deep phileo love. It may not be the rock your world type of love that Jamie and Claire had/have but it is solid. Then after 20 years, Claire returns… This one could be really, really angst filled.

    Prompt #2 We all know that if Jamie had to remarry, Laoghaire was probably the best person for him to marry as a marriage to her was never going to work (between her unrealistic expectations, her jealousy of Claire and Jamie’s apathy after his return from Helwater). My question is: don’t you think that if he had married someone (like a Mary McNabb but who wouldn’t necessarily have seen him with Claire) other than Laoghaire, someone he might have actually become friends with and grown to have a genuine affection for, it would have been much harder to reconcile the situation after Claire’s return especially if they had actually had a child or children together? I would think that he wouldn’t have left his second wife in this situation or would have brought her with him to Edinburgh.
