Now Gabaldon returns to that extraordinary time and place in this vivid, powerful follow-up to Outlander....For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills.

Interesting but didn't grasp me and occas...
3.5 stars *sigh*. Well, it is true that most of the second books are not as good as the first, and sadly, this is an example for one of those books. Now, don't get me wrong, it WAS a good book and I enjoyed the plot, but I think it would have been much better if it was shorter. This book has al...
This starts out much slower than I remembered. Like, a lot slower, and I found myself not really caring very much about anything that happens in Paris. Knowing the outcome, I just wanted to get the political intrigue over with, because who really cares about a clueless wannabe monarch who's barely i...
UGH....it's taken me just over 4 months to read this book. I really struggled with it. It was boring & way to wordy. I have to say, I like the show better.
