An Echo in the Bone
An Echo in the Bone | Diana Gabaldon
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 son - a young lieutenant in the British army - across 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, though- not 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 drama of Briannas parents story comes to life through Claires letters. The 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 battles - as 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 intimately entwined with life and death in war-torn colonialAmerica.

This is a text from a friend of mine that started listening to the series about the same time I decided to reread it. It cracked me up, I think she nailed it.
I love this series, but this may be my least favorite book. I'm bored by the war and I hate the cliffhangers. But I couldn't put it down, so my reading brain betrayed me. 🙃

Tera66 I'm reading the first book Outlander for the first time now, good to know I have so much to look forward to!😄 1mo

mandarchy @EvieBee it was funny. He finally left us in peace, but now we (me and the dog) can't seem to stay awake. It's the perfect weather for dozing off with a book. 1mo

Boo #7 in the series. This book is quite different than the earlier ones which have started where the last left off. This one starts prior to the ending of the last, but from a different point of view. While Claire & Jamie could never be supporting characters of the story - lord John & William are much more prominent with much of the story from their point of view. It‘s not my favorite because of that - but I get it‘s importance in future books.

As Claire and Jamie's journey continues they find themselves in America fighting in the War of Independence. If you like historical fiction, then you will like this series. A theme in this novel is the power of knowing vs. saying - as seen in how Claire knows how the war will turn out, but who will listen to her?

This weekend is all about staying inside and getting house projects done. We‘ve been on the go since the summer it feels like, so it‘s time to have some quiet weekends at home. Looking at making a dent in this one and attempting to finish my audiobook (The Right to Arm Bears) while working on the house projects #weekendreading

Finally done. This has been the least enjoyable of the series so far. the last 300 pages were the best part but the book was 1149 pages. Up next something light, a palette cleaner.

Shae_Purcell Just starting this one. 😬 12mo
Rissa1 @Shae_Purcell I hope you enjoy it more than I did. I have loved this series, hoping, that like any series, this is just that one book that doesn't meet the hype. 12mo
Shae_Purcell @Rissa1 I've read that a lot of important events happen in this book but also that certain parts/characters are incredibly dull. I'm planning to read at least a few pages each night so I don't get stuck like I did with The Fiery Cross. 12mo

Halfway point of this book. Only 565 pages to go (roughly). However, this has been my least favorite of the series so far. I am having a hard time staying focused, but I don't want to give up because I have loved this series until this point. #AwesomrAugust @Andrew65

It has been a long time since I posted. I‘m still here. And still reading. All of these lockdowns and having everyone home so much, really throws me off though. I miss my alone time. A. Lot. This week I‘m trying to lose myself in a bit of Jamie Fraser. I miss you Littens. I‘m going to have to try harder.

mandarchy I can relate! I miss alone time, but I also miss visits with friends and family I'm not locked up with. Things are starting to open up here, but with a young one who isn't vaccinated, it's slow going. 1y

The authors beautiful, descriptive writing really takes you into the story. However it can sometimes feel like over description and detract from the story as well. By the time you near the end, you‘ve had enough, but it‘s those last 100-200 pages (of an 800+ page book) where all of the action is - and it‘s really good. So that‘s why I‘m giving this one 4 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow, Jamie and Claire live such eventful lives. As the tale continues we find them traveling to Scotland and back, always on the brink of danger or mishap. Brianna and Roger are also not fated to live the quiet life, with letters from the past and even visitors from there too. It was an interesting and very long read, with twists and turns which kept me on my toes and wanting to read just one more chapter.

I liked this one. I like the 20th century storyline, and I liked Claire, Jamie and Ian‘s storylines, as well. I lost a lot of interest in Lord John Grey and William‘s parts in the book, though. Up until William met up with Ian. I do normally like John Grey, but I just couldn‘t get interested in his parts. I enjoy the medical history in the book – Claire's 20th century knowledge tin the 18th century. There were a couple of surprises at the end.

I don't read books over 500 pages if I don't really like them so it's tough to choose a favorite! 😆 But I do particularly love the seventh installment of the Outlander series. My best friend is currently reading the third book and I hope she continues because I can't wait to discuss this one with her.

We got home from Vietnam late last night, and my day has been spent with doing laundry and other chores you have to do when you return from holiday. I did find some time to finish this (finally!), also. Travelling around Vietnam didn‘t leave me much time or energy to read, but as always, it was a pleasure to spend my holiday with Claire and Jamie. While the Outlander books are no way near perfect, they are entertaining and perfect beach reads, imo

TrishB Hope you had a good holiday eventually!! 3y
