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.
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other.

Written in My Own Hearts Blood
Have read the entire Outlander series (some of them twice). Loved them all.
Ready for the next one! Have loved every minute of this entire series!
Does not Disappoint...
I have just finished Written In My Own Heart's Blood and, as with previous Diana Gabaldon novels, I am left with a feeling of melancholy knowing that I will have to wait years to catch up with Jamie and Claire! It would be truly wondrous if Ms. Gabaldon could write an Outlander novel each year it that is obviously impossible given the depth of characters, array of history and stunning imagery we are awarded by the wait between novels. This tome is a stunning continuation of one of the best historical fiction / romance series in print. For those of you who have yet to read Outlander, I find myself jealous of you...for you have a whole world to discover!
