Written in My Own Heart's Blood: Outlander Novel 8 Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
The eighth epic volume in the multimillion-copy bestselling Outlander series.
It is June 1778, and the world seems to be turning upside-down. The British Army is withdrawing from Philadelphia, with George Washington in pursuit, and for the first time, it looks as if the rebels might actually win. But for Claire Fraser and her family, there are even more tumultuous revolutions that have to be accommodated.
Her former husband, Jamie, has returned from the dead, demanding to know why in his absence she married his best friend, Lord John Grey. Lord John's son, the ninth Earl of Ellesmere, is no less shocked to discover that his real father is actually the newly resurrected Jamie Fraser, and Jamie's nephew Ian Murray discovers that his new-found cousin has an eye for the woman who has just agreed to marry him.
And while Claire is terrified that one of her husbands may be about to murder the other, in the 20th century her descendants face even more desperate turns of events. Her daughter Brianna is trying to protect her son from a vicious criminal with murder on his mind, while her husband Roger has disappeared into the past . . .

Whilst I'm looking forward to the 9th installment, I also dread its publication in a the sense that it will be our farewell to this family. The only consolation- books can be read over again. And this one already has been!
Thank uou for another triumph, Diana G!
She is a brilliant researcher and her stories are filled with interesting facts. Her characters are exciting. The plots pacey, and I love her writing style.
Unfortunately for her, Jamie and Claire are getting old and I'm not anywhere near as in love with Brianna and Roger. Hopefully she can make me fall in love with them before Jamie and Claire die.
My main criticism of her books is she has Claire use words peculiar to America, where Claire would use an English word, such as 'diaper' instead of 'nappy', "fall' instead of 'autumn'. I don't care how long Claire has lived in America, her character is stubborn enough to use the English word for the rest of her life, I know my very stubborn English mother insists on using the English. She should have them Englished, Scottished up by English/Scottish people.
One other minor criticisms of her books are the stupid names she gives to some of her incidental characters - there are way too many of them, names like Mr Horsely who has a long face like a horse, Mrs Lugbutt who has a big bottom. Petty I know, but I find it a bit juvenile.
They have humour, tragedy, love, lust, historical fiction and beautiful intricate descriptions and imagery.
Much to love ...it's a big book and she releases only 1 every 4 years......

So hard to put down, the reader just needs more and can't wait to find out what is happening in all the arenas the characters find themselves in.
Excellent drawing of all the characters leads to high emotions and an investing in their lives by the reader.
So many emotions; excitement, sorrow, joy and amusement to name a few.
Can't beat the wait for the next book and dreading the end of the story that must come eventually.
