It has been more than twenty years since Claire Randall walked through the stones and traveled back in time to eighteenth century Scotland. In that time, she fell in love with Jamie Fraser and had a daughter, Brianna. Now Brianna has followed her mother’s footsteps – but instead of finding herself in the past, she steps into the world of Roger Wakefield, a historian who knows far too much about the Frasers for his own good. While Brianna strives to protect her family from Roger’s knowledge, as well as ensure her own survival amidst dangerous political forces competing for control of Britain, Jamie finds himself alone at Lallybroch – Castle Leoch having been burned to the ground by Redcoats – fighting for his life against treacherous outlaws . . . and waiting hopefully for word from Claire.
