    Diana Gabaldon is the author of five previous Outlander novels — Outlander,Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, and The Fiery Cross — as well as Lord John and the Private Matter and one work of nonfiction,The Outlandish Companion. She lives in Scottsdale, Arizona.

    From the Hardcover edition.
    Eagerly anticipated by her legions of fans, this sixth novel in Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling Outlander saga is a masterpiece of historical fiction from one of the most popular authors of our time.

    Since the initial publication of Outlander fifteen years ago, Diana Gabaldon’sNew York Times bestselling saga has won the hearts of readers the world over — and sold more than twelve million books. Now,A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the extraordinary story of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century wife, Claire.

    The year is 1772, and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit. Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest.

    With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown. But from his wife Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence — with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping fromThe Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie’s death, along with his kin. For once, he hopes, his time-traveling family may be wrong about the future.

    From the Hardcover edition.

      If you have read the previous 7 then this makes sense. I enjoy the continuing saga of the story.

      Finally! This book is almost as good as the first one. Some of the previous books in this series were mired in detail and plodding. This one still has detail, but the adventures are plausible and make you want to keep reading.......Fun to have a page turner again!

    • Good Book, Bad Binding
      Verified Purchase

      The book is great! However because the book is so long and they made the actual size of the book so small, the book falls apart after reading a few pages!

      I ordered three books from Overstock.com just three weeks ago. The books were very reasonably priced, arrived before I was expecting them and were in great condition upon arrival. The entire process of buying these books was pleasurable, and I will come here first to buy my books in the future. As for the Outlander series in general, it is amazing, and I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind getting sucked in to a really good story. My husband loves them too.
