I borrowed this Book in Audio form from a library & after hearing Jamie & Claire in voice thought I would never be able to read the further books and capture the essence without those accents! (the library couldn't afford the whole set of the Audios) Such an Author!! I read the whole series listening to Jamie & Claire through out. Thank-you Diana and thank-you to the readers of the audios.

Review quote

Diana Gabaldon is a born storyteller. . . . The pages practically turn themselves. "The Arizona Republic" A triumph! A powerful tale layered in history and myth. I loved every page. Nora Roberts Compulsively readable. "Publishers Weekly" "From the Hardcover edition.""
