    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



    This is Part 4 of the Basia Mille Series. It picks up a little more than a year after where Sojourn of a Thousand More ended.

    "Love is not just a passion spark between two people; there is infinite difference between falling in love and standing in love. Rather, love is a way of being, a "giving to," not a 'falling for'..."
    Irvin Yalom - Love's Executioner and Other Tales of Psychotherapy

    This is a story about a married couple and their growing family in a time of war. Claire is 8 months pregnant as the Battle of Culloden draws near. The Frasers have been summoned to Leoch to ease Colum’s imminent passing. While Claire is drawn to a patient that reminds her of a boy from her past, Jamie starts having strange dreams that rattle him in a way no others ever had. As Claire struggles with how best to care for her children and patients, Jamie does all in his power to protect his land, family, and tenants. Perhaps the answers to both their problems can be found in the same place.
