This was a good book. Long but good. I still prefer Outlander over this book but I still very much enjoyed the story and the characters. I still love Jamie. Every woman needs a man like him.

I did feel that parts of the book could have been cut. Some scenes didn't do anything for the plot. I also didn't like that the story kept changing from first-person point of view to third person point of view. I found that it disrupted the flow of the book.

Good book. Definitely can't wait to read more!

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But not she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland's majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones...about a love that transcends the boundaries of time...and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his...

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire's spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-riddent Paris court of Charles a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising...and in a desparate fight to save both the child and the man she loves....
