This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[Ok I just finished this book, I still have not read when Jamie goes to the future to see Claire in the window, and being found by Frank (book 1). Will we ever find out? Because if these two time lines are parallels, it doesn't seem possible. (hide spoiler)]
I am reading Drums of Autumn and I am trying to recall how Fergus ended up in America. When I read Voyager I remember towards the end when they are going back to Hispaniola to find Ian Jamie leaves Fergus and Marsali on Jamaica. Now only two months later he is witnessing the execution of Jamie's friend. Did he take ship to America after Jamie and Claire arrived? Do they explain this later and I am just not there yet?

I read in a Kindle so don't realize the length until I am weeks into it and still more to go. I found the story very intriguing and it enlightens us on historical fiction of N. America which is a nice change. I have been watching the TV series and really enjoy having read ahead of the show to have more depth. I enjoy the show so committed to reading the whole book so that I am ready for the next season with some incite. Worth the read but HAPPY to be on to someone different when done.(less)
Does anyone think it strange that when Brianna shows up at Lallybroch and tells the Murray's that she is Jamie and Claire's long lost daughter that they don't question her where she has been all those years and why she has suddenly shown up then and doesn't know where er parents are?. They just accept her as family. I think that's not very realistic since they didn't even know Jamie HAD a daughter.
Lora Swafford I thought the same thing at first, but it says in there that Jenny knew it was his daughter just by looking at her, and they did talk to her about her…moreI thought the same thing at first, but it says in there that Jenny knew it was his daughter just by looking at her, and they did talk to her about her parents and where they were and such, it just wasn't very detailed. It wasn't very realistic in the fact that it just happened so fast. (less)

This book is like watching paint dry. 1070 pages that could have been banged out in 500. I mean gooooooooooooooooooooood lord above, does seasickness warrant 15 pages? And do I need the recap to Brianna in the middle of this. I know ffs, I have read up to this point. And can Roger and Bri be any more DULL.
Is anyone else a member of the Celtic-Norse Heritage Society of Central Florida or Brevard County who is also reading this gripping series of books of historical fiction about 18th Century Scotland & Colonial America? Not to mention the fact that the second installment of the Outlander TV series inspired by author Diana Gabaldon comes to the Starz network on April 4, 2015!!
