In her most captivating novel, Diana Gabaldon transforms Scotland’s timeless past into an amazing future-a modern epic set in a world of magical realism and bold historical vision. After twenty years apart, Claire Randall is finally returning to Scotland with her grown daughter. But when she arrives there at last, a series of chilling discoveries force her to face all she has feared: that loss and violence exist beyond her grasp; and that time itself-the very land itself-is being destroyed by forces that threaten millions with death.
In a breathtaking epic that sweeps us back to the drama and passion of 18th-century Scotland, Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser have been reunited. But there is one thing Claire never shared with Jamie: her destination on this journey. For twenty years, she has kept her secret. And even now, as she journeys home with her grown daughter and grandson—back through centuries of war and bloodshed to the land where their story began—she must make a choice that could change everything.
It’s been twenty years since Claire Randall left her husband and child behind to build a new life amongst the ancient standing stones of Scotland. Yet even as she struggles to reinvent herself as a modern woman–first as an archaeologist, then as a businesswoman–Claire knows that nothing can dim her passionate memories of the time she spent with the young warrior Jamie Fraser. Yet when tragedy strikes and causes Claire to flee home again, escaping the world she has sworn to know no longer seems an option.
