    Summary

    After nearly nine years of being a widow, Claire has Jamie back in her arms and in her life. After a lifetime of stories, Brianna’s father is a real, living man. The family at Lallybroch must prepare to welcome visits from the English to check in with the former prisoner. They cannot afford any slip-ups; if Mister Malcolm is revealed to be Red Jamie, Claire’s widowhood will be restored. Permanently this time.

    Claire cannot survive another pregnancy, and she and Jamie do feel that absence, a loss of sorts. Yet their little family grows in a way none of them expect.

    Brianna’s illness remains an ever-present fear for Claire, and now Jamie, as he learns how to grapple with it. Can they keep a lid on it for the rest of her life?

    A story of second chances, of found family, and hope in the face of fear and uncertainty.

    Summary

    Jamie sends Claire back through the stones to the man who would protect both her and their unborn child.
    When Claire wakes up on the other side, she finds exactly that man.

    This is the story of how Jamie keeps his promise to Claire.

    “I will find you," he whispered in my ear. "I promise. If I must endure two hundred years of purgatory, two hundred years without you - then that is my punishment, which I have earned for my crimes. For I have lied, and killed, and stolen; betrayed and broken trust. But there is the one thing that shall lie in the balance. When I shall stand before God, I shall have one thing to say, to weigh against the rest."

    His voice dropped, nearly to a whisper, and his arms tightened around me.

    Lord, ye gave me a rare woman, and God! I loved her well.”
    ― Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber

    Summary

    "Many many years ago, in the aulden times, there lived a young woman who was of the faeries. She was a bonny thing -- the most bonny lass ye may have e’er laid eyes on, wi’ hair like black earth and eyes like the gems of auld an’ a laugh that made the forests sing."

    Bree, beside him, continues scowling at her shoes as though her last-week declaration that she would like to attend university in Boston -- "this is your doing," Claire had informed him, with wryness in her voice -- has been summarily swapped out for a new career of floorboard-staring.

    Jamie supposes there is no easy way to learn that your mother is from the future.
