Audio Book Summary

A worldwide sensation with more than 12 million copies in print, Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series has produced #1 best-selling novels and earned a fiercely devoted fan base. Another spellbinding entry in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the privilege, although some might call it a burden, of knowing that war cannot be avoided. Claire has told him that the colonies will unite and rebel, and the result will be independence, with all British loyalists either dead or exiled. And there is an additional problem. Claire has discovered a newspaper clipping from 1776 that tells of Jamie's death. With its epic scope, historical details, and sweeping romance, A Breath of Snow and Ashes is everything Gabaldon's fans love and more.

    I enjoy listening to the Outlander series while I cross-stitch or do other crafts or when I am in my car. I can do two things at one time and the narrator makes the story even more interesting!

    I have loved these books since Outlander was first published and this is one of my favorites. I think Diana is a fantastic story-teller. But I don’t agree with everyone’s praise for Davina Porter’s narration. To my ear, her voices for both Claire and Jamie do not at all suit the characters, by age or personality, and it’s made the audio books difficult for me to enjoy. I have re-read all of the books many times, but my eyes are worsening and I’d love to be able to give myself over to the audio. I’ll keep trying.
