Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

In this epic of imagination, time travel, and adventure, Diana Gabaldon continues the riveting story begun in "Outlander."
Jamie Fraser is an eighteenth-century Highlander, an ex-Jacobite traitor, and a reluctant rebel in the American Revolution. His wife, Claire Randall Fraser, is a surgeon--from the twentieth century. What she knows of the future compels him to fight. What she doesn't know may kill them both.
With one foot in America and one foot in Scotland, Jamie and Claire's adventure spans the Revolution, from sea battles to printshops, as their paths cross with historical figures from Benjamin Franklin to Benedict Arnold.
Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, their daughter, Brianna, and her husband experience the unfolding drama of the Revolutionary War through Claire's letters. But the letters can't warn them of the threat that's rising out of the past to overshadow their family.
Diana Gabaldon's sweeping Outlander saga reaches new heights in "An Echo in the Bone."

Review by Library Journal (2009-12-01)

In this seventh installment in No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Gabaldon's "Outlander" series, 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire, are caught up in the American Revolution while their daughter, Briana, seeks lifesaving medical attention for her ailing child that only the 20th century can provide. With her warm tones and spot-on accents, actress/Audie Award winner Davina Porter brings a delightful versatility to this book, which fans of long historical fiction, time-travel fantasies, and this series will love. With so many plot lines, characters, and situations with insufficient backstory, however, it is not ideal as an introduction to the author.
