Gabaldon's fourth book in her fascinating series about Jamie and Claire Fraser, displaced Scottish Highlanders, brings the adventuresome couple to the American Colonies. Combining the joy of eternal love, the promise of a new (and, they hope, safe) life, and the drive to reunite themselves with their daughter, Gabaldon lures listeners in and treats them to a thrilling ride. Geraldine James brings her years of theatrical experience to the recording. This isn't a reading; it's a performance. She proves her talent with the soft delivery of Claire and the powerful gentleness she brings to Jamie. The result is a fine tale told with the energy and passion it deserves.
