Audiobook Description:

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....

    Book 4. Brianna and Roger join Claire and Jamie. Not so much easy going.

    Brianna really annoys me. I'm not sure if it's the character, or if it's that I listened to this book on CD and the actress's voicing of her annoyed me (in general, I love Davina Porter's readings of these books, ... more...

    Number 4 in the Outlander Series and what a ride! Again, I'm putting up flashing signs that say "Lots of descriptive sex in here", don't read these if you're not married. Seriously. You will burn with lust.

    These have a great storyline, anxiety inducing adventure, deep char... more...

    Books one and two were so very good, the third "Voyager", became quite the travelogue, and dragging in places, but because I loved the first 2 I wanted to keep going with the series.

    I decided to try listening to it instead of reading and it's a good thing! This book was much f... more...

    The Outlander series is definitely one of my most recommencded series of books. I might even love these books more than Harry Potter - and that's saying something.

    The Outlander books are set in the 1700s. They start off in Scotland, but later travel to Paris, Jamaica and the American C... more...

    Probably 2 1/2 because I really like the little moments that Claire and Jamie shared. Almost like the first two books! :-) I really liked the section where Jamie took his son out fishing while Claire cared for Ian and Lord John. Lots of good character development there.

    I didn't really l... more...

    So far, my favorite book in the Outlander series. Even though the author skips POV's so often it can get confusing, i found the addition of major characters really exciting and well executed.

    I loved the story of Brianna and Roger. So complicated. I found Roger to be incredibly endea... more...

    Good stuff. I know by now you're all aware how besotted I am by this entire series. In this installation, we get to know Roger and Brianna a bit better. I find Brianna a bit...an teensy bit...tedious. But Roger is a darling. And, of course, we get to meet a new villian who I like only marginall... more...

    I have to turn it back into the library and re-request it because someone has a hold on it. So I'll have to get back to it. Love the audiobook. Davina Porter is a fantastic narrator. Finished disc 12.

    Finally finished listening to this book. I started with the library copy of the au... more...

    There are parts of these books I think are silly and overdone (there seems to be more of these occurrences the farther we get into the series with the wild Indians and pirates and treasures and reblooming of characters throughout), but underneath the outrageous action adventures the author weaves a ... more...

    As this is the fourth novel in the series, there will most likely be spoilers for those who have not yet gotten this far in the story. Consider yourself warned.

    I do love Jamie and Claire Fraser. They continue to be the couple that gets the entire idea of marriage - the give and take, the i... more...
