Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone
Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone | Diana Gabaldon
#1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon returns with the newest novel in the epic Outlander series. The past may seem the safest place to be . . . but it is the most dangerous time to be alive. . . . Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1746, and it took them twenty years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same. It is 1779 and Claire and Jamie are at last reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband, Roger, and their children on Fraser's Ridge. Having the family together is a dream the Frasers had thought impossible. Yet even in the North Carolina backcountry, the effects of war are being felt. Tensions in the Colonies are great and local feelings run hot enough to boil Hell's teakettle. Jamie knows loyalties among his tenants are split and it won't be long until the war is on his doorstep. Brianna and Roger have their own worry: that the dangers that provoked their escape from the twentieth century might catch up to them. Sometimes they question whether risking the perils of the 1700s--among them disease, starvation, and an impending war--was indeed the safer choice for their family. Not so far away, young William Ransom is still coming to terms with the discovery of his true father's identity--and thus his own--and Lord John Grey has reconciliations to make, and dangers to meet . . . on his son's behalf, and his own. Meanwhile, the Revolutionary War creeps ever closer to Fraser's Ridge. And with the family finally together, Jamie and Claire have more at stake than ever before.

First off, without giving spoilers…I assumed this would be the final book of the series. Having just finished it, I don‘t believe that is the case. However because I thought it was and ‘needed‘ to figure out who died to end the series, I feel like I rushed through it. Now I think I may need to go back and re-read it, or even re-read the whole series. It was great - as all the outlander books are. The family all comes together in this one.

Tianarose I read an interview with Diana once that said she‘s contracted for 10. 2d

I don‘t want to spoil anything, but I was not disappointed. I am so glad Diana did not pull a George RR Martin. Read for 4 readathons, counted a few word find words. 356 pts #teamgamesleighers #wintergames @StayCurious #wintercozy #wrapitupreadathon @keys_on_fire #averymerryreadathon @TheSpineView

TheSpineView Great job 5d
keys_on_fire Awesome! 👏🏻 I‘m hoping this ends up under my Christmas tree this year 🤞🏻 4d

What can I say: It‘s Outlander. It‘s book number 9. It‘s Jamie and Claire and all the clan back together again. It‘s 900+ pages of awesomeness! 6 out of 5 stars.

My #20in4 plan is set! My weekend is going to be making headway into these with the Starz Outlander marathon running in the background. I‘m rereading Echo in the Bone right now, and I haven‘t read Written in my Own Heart‘s Blood yet. So much Outlander.

keys_on_fire I need to reread the series as well, and requested Go Tell for Christmas. Maybe I‘ll just make 2022 ‘The Year of Outlander‘ 😂😂 2w

Hygge continues. Today‘s candle is called Jamie and smells of musk, wood smoke, and pine. The candles can be found at www.bookscentscandles.com. The tea is called Castle Morr. It is an organic Tanzanian black tea with organic Assam black tea. Tastes like a strong breakfast tea so you can add what ever you want to it. I am only 50 pages in and enjoying the book. Diana does not disappoint.

Time to get cozy! My holiday obligations are done since we are turkey today. The house is clean. So for the next few day I will be doing nothing but reading this chunkster. I got the mug and tea from an Outlander convention a few years ago. The tea is called Dinna Fash and is a rooibos chamomile tea. It had some sugar and the honey and it is delicious. The candle is called Among the Hives and smells of honey, nectar, and wildflowers.

EvieBee Wowza. Feeling the hygge vibes all the way over here. Enjoy! 2w

OMG OMG OMG! #droughtlander is finally over! My daughter and I took the day off of #homeschooling to have our own little #readathon to celebrate! First, an early morning trip to the bookstore (she's excited about the recent release of Marissa Meyer's new book "Gilded"), now we get a full day of reading. Yay!! #outlander #raisingreaders

ravenlee One of the best parts of homeschooling is taking days off for really good reasons - like book release day! 2w

Getting closer to the next tome in the Outlander. In the U.K. it is available for pre-order, including signed copies.

TrishB I‘ve been on the fence with the last couple. But I think I‘ll probably still have to get 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Andrew65 @TrishB I‘ve still only read the first one but own a number of others. 2mo
JacqMac I still have one more to read to be all caught up before the new one. I try not to go through them too fast, because waiting seven years for the next one is painful. 2mo

I am really cheap! I get most of my books from the library or used. My plan was as soon as school let's out, to re-read the series and then this when it comes out. But now I'm thinking I may have to wait just a little longer. Patience vs. Principles

Johanna414 Is this going to be the last book? I read the first 4 years and years ago, but I dont want to reread them until the series is complete- I hate waiting and inevitably forgetting too much to continue if theres years between titles! 7mo
mandarchy @Johanna414 I don't actually know. I thought so, but the TV series may be pressing her to keep writing. 7mo
BookNAround @Johanna414 @mandarchy Gabaldon has said there is yet another one after this one. I‘m not sure when it went from finished at 4 books to a series of 10. 🤷‍♀️ 7mo
Johanna414 @mandarchy @BookNAround oof... I guess I'll wait a few more years then! 🤣 7mo

Traci1 @booksbrewsandbooze yes, you do. 😄 just know if you feel they're a tad slow around 3 or 4, they get so much better from there. Seven and eight are my favorites by far. 8mo
Liatrek I‘m so excited. I was thinking of staring from the beginning and reading all again to be ready for November release. Wonder if anyone would want to do buddy read on the series? 8mo
