Author(s): Diana Gabaldon
A beautifully designed collector's edition of the second book in Diana Gabaldon's blockbuster Outlander saga (now a Starz original series), featuring a new introduction by the author and a reader's group guide
A quarter century ago, Diana Gabaldon followed up her classic novel Outlander with a powerful sequel that reunited fans with her unforgettable characters--eighteenth-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his time-traveling wife, Claire Randall. In celebration of the series that has captured the imagination of millions and inspired the acclaimed television drama, here is a special twenty-fifth-anniversary edition.
For twenty years, Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to the mysteries of Scotland's mist-shrouded Highlands.
Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as shocking as the events that gave it birth: the secret of an ancient circle of standing stones, the secret of a love that transcends centuries, and the truth of a man named Jamie Fraser--a Highland warrior whose gallantry once drew the young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.
Claire's spellbinding journey continues through the intrigue-ridden French court and the menace of Jacobite plots to the Highlands of Scotland, through war and death, in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.
THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES.
