In her long awaited new novel, Drums of Autumn, Diana
Gabaldon continues the remarkable story of Claire and Jamie Fraser
that began with the classic Outlander, and its bestselling
sequels, Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager.
Cast ashore in the American colonies, the Frasers are faced with a
bleak choice: return to a Scotland fallen into famine and poverty,
or seize the risky chance of a new life in the New World--menaced
by Claire''s certain knowledge of the coming Revolution.
Still, a highlander is born to risk--and so is a
time-traveler. Their daughter, Brianna, is safe--they
think--on the other side of a dangerous future; their lives are
their own to venture as they will. With faith in
themselves and in each other, they seek a new beginning among the
exiled Scottish Highlanders of the Cape Fear, in the fertile river
valleys of the Colony of North Carolina.
Even in the New World, though, the Frasers find their hope of peace
threatened from without and within; by the British Crown and by
Jamie''s aunt, Jocasta
MacKenzie, last of the MacKenzies of Leoch.
A hunger for freedom drives Jamie to a Highlander''s only true
refuge: the mountains. And here at last, with no
challenge to their peace--save wild animals, Indians, and the
threat of starvation--the Frasers establish a precarious foothold
in the wilderness, secure in the knowledge that even war cannot
invade their mountain sanctuary.
But history spares no one, and when Brianna follows her mother into
the past, not even the mountains can shelter a
Highlander. For Brianna too has an urgent
quest: not only to find the mother she has lost and the father she
has never met, but to save them both from a future that only she
