9780440224259: The Drums of Autumn

The magnificent saga continues....

It began in Scotland, at an ancient stone circle. There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past—or the grave. Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once but twice. Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became legend—a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Her second journey, two decades later, brought them together again in frontier America. But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century. Their daughter, Brianna....

Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the stone circle and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history...and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past...or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong....

Review:

Set in pre-Revolutionary War America, readers finally have the much awaited fourth book in what will probably become a six book series (The Outlander series). The talented Diana Gabaldon continues Claire and Jamie's romantic love affair, and introduces Brianna and Roger's story. Eight hundred pages, and several wonderful new characters later, we wonder why we were waiting for a conclusion. It'll be a long wait for book five, so I recommend you go back and reread Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, and Voyager to keep yourself sane.

From the Publisher:

"Drums of Autumn is Diana Gabaldon at her finest and most mesmerizing."

In her long awaited new novel, Drums of Autumn, Diana Gabaldoncontinues the remarkable story of Claire and Jamie Fraser that began with theclassic Outlander, and its bestselling sequels, Dragonfly inAmber and Voyager. Cast ashore in the American colonies, the Frasers are faced with a bleakchoice: return to a Scotland fallen into famine and poverty, or seize the riskychance of a new life in the New World--menaced by Claire s certain knowledge ofthe coming Revolution.Still, a highlander is born to risk--and so is a time-traveler. Theirdaughter, Brianna, is safe--they think--on the other side of a dangerousfuture; their lives are their own to venture as they will. With faith inthemselves and in each other, they seek a new beginning among the exiledScottish Highlanders of the Cape Fear, in the fertile river valleys of theColony of North Carolina.Even in the New World, though, the Frasers find their hope of peace threatenedfrom without and within; by the British Crown and by Jamie s aunt, JocastaMacKenzie, last of the MacKenzies of Leoch.A hunger for freedom drives Jamie to a Highlander s only true refuge: themountains. And here at last, with no challenge to their peace--save wildanimals, Indians, and the threat of starvation--the Frasers establish aprecarious foothold in the wilderness, secure in the knowledge that even warcannot invade their mountain sanctuary.But history spares no one, and when Brianna follows her mother into the past, not even the mountains can shelter a Highlander. For Brianna too has an urgentquest: not only to find the mother she has lost and the father she has nevermet, but to save them both from a future that only she can see.
