An Echo in the Bone

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon (Delacorte Press, 2009).

Much to my surprise, it turned out that “A Breath of Snow and Ashes” is not the last book in the Outlander series.  Neither is this one. The current projection is for one more novel, to be published in fall 2013. I read this one in print rather than on CD, so it went a lot faster.  The emphasis was on the battles of the Revolutionary War, so some of the story was told from the point of view of Jamie’s illegitimate son William, a British soldier.  Brianna and Roger, now back in 20th century Scotland, read about the experience on the American side through the letters Claire and Jamie left for them.  The main characters narrowly escape death numerous times during the book, as always, but more of the book was based on real events.
