This book follows Jamie and Claire as they try to build a new life in America. We also get to hear more from their children and we get a little trip to Lallybroch (one of my favorite fictional places).
One of the things I love most about Diana's books are the history. It is so fun to travel back in time. She writes everything so well, you almost feel as it you were there. I have learned quite a bit reading her books, and can say I am truly grateful that I live during the time that I do with hot showers, flushing toilets, an grocery stores. I have loved reading about Claire and her adventures in medicine. I can't imagine how frustrated she must be trying to treat her patients with herbs and natural medicine...given all her knowledge from the future.
