Teaser Tuesday: Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon

For nearly twenty yea5364rs Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones… about a love that transcends the boundaries of time… and about Jamie Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart… in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising… and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves

“I stood stock-still, watching. I had come through the fading night to find this, to stop them. And having found them, now I could not intervene, for fear of causing a fatal interruption. All I could do was wait, to see which of my men would die.”

 

*sigh* This book – this whole series – will be the death of me. I know it. Have you ever been terrified to finish a book because you just know that the characters’ future is going to shatter your heart into little, irretrievable pieces? I feel that way as I near the end of Dragonfly in Amber (#2 in the Outlander series). I cried like a snot-nosed toddler reading book #1, so I’m under no impression that the rest of book two won’t leave me emotionally crippled. And yet, I love it ;).

Cheers!

  1. I totally get what you mean. Having heard a spoiler I am completely unable to finish the first book in this series – I’m stuck at about 75%! But I may have to finish it this year as I do plan to watch the TV series eventually!

  4. Hi Keely, thanks for stopping by “A Spirit of Healing”. I am not a great fan of Diana Galbaldon. I read the first book in the series and it just didn’t draw me in. Hope you enjoy it 🙂
