The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor--Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth--there will, without a doubt, be a war. Her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through perilous years ahead--or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

Professional reviews

"Seasoned time-traveler Claire Randall Fraser has decided to remain in eighteenth-century North Carolina with her Scottish husband, James, and their daughter and grandchildren. Knowing how the American Revolution turns out can't prevent the difficulties and violence associated with colonial life. Davina Porter carries the story with a vibrancy and consistency that keep the listener riveted throughout all 40 tapes. Her Scottish and British dialects distinguish the characters so thoroughly as to make them instantly identifiable, even before the speakers are named. Jamie Fraser's rough but lilting Scots accent contrasts nicely with that of his refined British wife. Their daughter, Briana, carries no American dialect; neither does she suffer from a poor imitation thereof. Even the babies convincingly whine, cajole, and play. Porter's narrative passages tie these delightful characters together elegantly. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
