An Echo in the Bone: A Novel (Hardcover)
Jamie Fraser, former Jacobite and reluctant rebel, is already certain of three things about the American rebellion: The Americans will win, fighting on the side of victory is no guarantee of survival, and hed rather die than have to face his illegitimate sona young lieutenant in the British armyacross the barrel of a gun.
Claire Randall knows that the Americans will win, too, but not what the ultimate price may be. That price wont include Jamies life or his happiness, thoughnot if she has anything to say about it.
Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, Jamie and Claires daughter, Brianna, and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, have resettled in a historic Scottish home where, across a chasm of two centuries, the unfolding drama of Briannas parents story comes to life through Claires letters. The fragile pages reveal Claires love for battle-scarred Jamie Fraser and their flight from North Carolina to the high seas, where they encounter privateers and ocean battlesas Brianna and Roger search for clues not only to Claires fate but to their own. Because the future of the MacKenzie family in the Highlands is mysteriously, irrevocably, and intimately entwined with life and death in war-torn colonial America.
With stunning cameos of historical characters from Benedict Arnold to Benjamin Franklin, An Echo in the Bone is a soaring masterpiece of imagination, insight, character, and adventurea novel that echoes in the mind long after the last page is turned.

My title says it all -- fantastic reading, awesome love story!Read More
This story by Gabaldon was difficult to accept after first reading the whole story. I know another book is on its way, so hopefully, there will be answers to so many unanswered questions that the end of the story left behind. I am a great fan of the author and have read all of the books in this series and others. I cannot wait for the next book to come out...it has been too long of a waitRead More
I enjoy reading her books. This series is very interesting.Read More
In true Diana Gabaldon fashion a lot of time is spent during the first quarter of the book diving into character development which can be a bit monotonous in areas. I say this only because there are a few of the characters I am less interested in than others, so that is more a personal thing I would say, but the develpment is important to the story line and makes the rest of the book that much better. This is one of the better stories in the series I believe and really enjoyed this book!Read More
