Drums of Autumn
Drums of Autumn | Diana Gabaldon
It began in Scotland, at an ancient stone circle.There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past--or the grave.Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once buy twice.Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became 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 frontier America.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 stone circle 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...From the Paperback edition.

Hoping to get through this and the first cross before season 5 of the show begins in February! Wish me luck. I still have 6 books to read for my Goodreads challenge so hopefully I haven‘t bitten off more than I can chew.

Finished book four of my re-read. It took me so long, I‘ve managed to lose the dust cover. It‘s still an amazing book. So full of details and life. My hope is to have book five read before the end of the year in preparation of season five of the show coming out in February. In my original read of the series, I only made it through book six, so here‘s to a few more re-reads then on to new to me ones!

Very good. Davina Porter continues to an excellent job on narrating on this series and even though there were some chapters that I thought didn't add anything to the book it was still a wonderful story.

AlaMich I haven‘t listened to her read any Gabaldon but I love every other thing I‘ve heard Davina Porter read! 3w
Birdsong28 @AlaMich If she read the telephone book (when we had one) I would listen to her as she is just so good. 😃📚📖 3w

46° in Illinois called for a fire and outdoor reading. A bit chilly but I needed fresh air and the smell of wood smoke.

I'm sick of posting pictures from my ugly audiobook app so you get this promotional shot from the show. You're welcome.

This has probably been my least favorite so far, unfortunately, but I did still enjoy it. I never really jelled with Brianna and Roger so that had much to do with it.

Traci1 I felt like the series sort of bogged down a little with books 3 and 4, then started picking back up. The last two that she has out are amazing. Written in My Own Heart's Blood is so fantastic that it makes the slower ones in the middle more than worth the effort. 9mo
Liatrek I agree! I‘ve just never been a fan of Bree and Roger. I was always happy Jaimie got to meet her because it‘s so unfair how he never got to enjoy raising his kids. But she could of went back to future. 9mo
everlocalwest @Traci1 I'm glad to hear they start picking up again! @Liatrek it is nice to see them as a family. And I think Gabaldon does a great job of having Briana reflect her parents strengths and weaknesses back to them. 9mo
Zelma Roger gets a lot more interesting. He ended up as one of my favorite characters. Definitely with faults but interesting. 9mo
everlocalwest @Zelma Good to know! It can take a while for new characters to find their place in an established series. 8mo

😍😍😍Just finished the season finale and I‘m just going to say it Murtagh is hotter than Jaimie now! Has anyone else watched the last episode yet? I have spoiler comments below😶

Liatrek 1. Omg I cried so hard at Ian leaving😭😭😭 I pretty sure I did reading the book too. 9mo
Liatrek 2. Yes!!! Murtagh and Jocasta❤️ loved that scene ❤️ 9mo
Liatrek 3. Honestly I‘m not a fan of book or show Roger and Brianne. I know it‘s hard to come up to Jaimie and Claire for chemistry but I always wished their story had been different. 9mo
Traci1 Haven't watched this one yet, but I do love Murtaugh. Of all the things they have / could have altered from the books, how his story unfolds is the best change for me. ❤❤ 9mo
Liatrek @Traci1 Yes! It really is be best book to series change I‘ve ever seen. 9mo

My delayed gratification compunction has me meting out these books at a glacial pace; having just started watching the show, I may pick that up a bit. This was a solid entry. Spending time in another world is my greatest escape and this gives us multiple settings along with timelines. But there were things in here that annoyed me.

BibliOphelia Jamie‘s response to Bree‘s pregnancy, the amount of time Roger was gone, and Roger and Bree‘s reunion just didn‘t play as well for me as I‘d hope. But to each their own. 🤷‍♀️ And Ian! I‘m glad he‘s pretty happy, but still! 😩 9mo

I‘m a sucker for Outlander - I love the characters and the richness of the world building. I eat them up! This one was particularly exciting as it takes place in America! Plot wise, it was pretty slow but I enjoyed the extensive descriptions and character building. I‘m loving the new TV season and am tempted to pick up the next book now!

Spent a lot of today in the car, driving to and from VA with Maya to visit my birth father and half-siblings. A lovely hike in the woods (Which reminded me of Fraser‘s Ridge in Outlander), cozy dinner, and then a 2 hr drive back home.

I‘m exhausted, but it was a really good day. Really good. ☺️
