A worldwide sensation with more than 12 million copies in print, Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series has produced #1 best-selling novels and earned a fiercely devoted fan base. Another spellbinding entry in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the privilege, although some might call it a burden, of knowing that war cannot be avoided. Claire has told him that the colonies will unite and rebel, and the result will be independence, with all British loyalists either dead or exiled. And there is an additional problem. Claire has discovered a newspaper clipping from 1776 that tells of Jamie's death. With its epic scope, historical details, and sweeping romance, A Breath of Snow and Ashes is everything Gabaldon's fans love and more.

"The intensely loyal fans of the Outlander series will devour this sixth installment. Diana Gabaldon delivers both an exciting plot and lovely fine detail; reader Davina Porter provides sensational narration. It's a relief to hear Jamie Fraser's Scottish and Gaelic dialogue, rather than struggle with mental pronunciation. Porter shines in Claire Fraser's chapters of first-person narrative, portraying a warm and wise middle-aged beauty with steely determination and courage--an unusual combination in the eighteenth century, but not in her native twentieth century. As Jamie strives to maintain peace in his North Carolina settlement, he tries to ignore Claire's knowledge that the American Revolution is about to begin, and he must choose sides. N.M.C.
