BOOKLIST In her now classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon told the story
of Claire Randall, an English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone
circle in the Scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears . . . into 1743.
The story unfolded from there in seven bestselling novels, and CNN has
called it a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart,
weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries]. Now the
story continues in Written in My Own Heart's Blood. 1778: France declares
war on Great Britain, the British army leaves Philadelphia, and George
Washington's troops leave Valley Forge in pursuit. At this moment, Jamie
Fraser returns from a presumed watery grave to discover that his best
friend has married his wife, his illegitimate son has discovered (to his
horror) who his father really is, and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to
marry a Quaker. Meanwhile, Jamie's wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are
busy picking up the pieces. The Frasers can only be thankful that their
daughter Brianna and her family are safe in twentieth-century Scotland. Or
not. In fact, Brianna is searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a
man determined to learn her family's secrets. Her husband, Roger, has
ventured into the past in search of the missing boy . . . never suspecting
that the object of his quest has not left the present. Now, with Roger out
of the way, the kidnapper can focus on his true target: Brianna herself.
