Drums of Autumn (Outlander #4) by Diana Gabaldon
Publish Date: August 28, 2001
List Price: $15.34
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
It began at an ancient Scottish stone circle. There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past—or the grave. Dr. Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once but twice.
Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became a legend—a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Her second journey, two decades later, brought them together again in the American colonies. But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century—their daughter, Brianna....
Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the circle of stones and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history ... and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past ... or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong....
Another good book in the series. This book now involves several more characters and more depth to these characters as we learn more about who they are and how crucial their role in the time travel events is. We learn more about who Brianna is and what she discovers about her mother and father. How she accepts and loves both her fathers as well as reasons she needs to get to her mother.
The historical fiction genre is just my cup of tea (no pun intended). I love the historical facts that are shared in this series along with the love story and drama that unfolds. Claire, Jamie, Brianna and Roger are all main characters at this point. The vivid writing continues throughout the series thus far and I have enjoyed traveling with these characters basically around the world.
Looking forward to the next book of adventures and Jamie & Claire!
