    Review text
    The third (Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber) in a time-travel trilogy that again creates a vivid sense of daily life in 18th-century Europe. Unlike its predecessors, however, Gabaldon's latest relies more on genre cliches than on history for its drama. The story opens in 1746, on the battlefield of Culloden, where Scotland's dream of winning independence from England has just been brutally crushed. Our hero, gallant Highland laird Jamie Fraser, survives the battle and makes his way to a cave near his estate. There, he goes into hiding for several years, then turns himself in to the English to protect his near-starving dependents - and winds up in prison. Meanwhile, Claire Randall, the love of Jamie's life - whom he had sent back through a charmed circle of stones to the safety of her passionless but companionable 20th-century marriage just before the battle began - is raising her and Jamie's daughter and working as a doctor in postwar England. Once their daughter is grown, Claire traces Jamie's fate through historical documents, realizes he survived Culloden, and steps back through the circle for the third and last time - to join him in 18th-century Scotland, 20 years after they parted. After a passionate reunion, they're soon on the run again from the English - and it's an eventful journey. While chasing a mysterious ship that kidnapped Jamie's nephew, the pair and their ragtag entourage dodge pirates, battle a witch, and survive saber slashes, gunshots, brushes with typhoid, and violent tropical storms at sea. Thanks to a string of Dickensian coincidences, they also encounter - or at least learn the fate of - all the principal characters from the first two books. Fans will savor this hefty tome's conscientious tying up of loose ends - but Claire's uncharacteristic passivity throughout and the book's overreliance on convention are unlikely to draw new readers.

    From the author of the breathtaking bestsellers "Outlander and "Dragonfly in Amber, the extraordinary saga continues. Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her... and her body still cries out for him in her dreams. Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and pain awaiting her...the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland... and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite--or forever doom--her timeless love.
