Fantasy. Fiction. Romance. Historical Fiction. A worldwide sensation with more than 12 million copies in print, Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series has produced #1 best-selling novels and earned a fiercely devoted fan base. Another spellbinding entry in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the privilege, although some might call it a burden, of knowing that war cannot be avoided. Claire has told him that the colonies will unite and rebel, and the result will be independence, with all British loyalists either dead or exiled. And there is an additional problem. Claire has discovered a newspaper clipping from 1776 that tells of Jamie's death. With its epic scope, historical details, and sweeping romance, A Breath of Snow and Ashes is everything Gabaldon's fans love and more.… (més)

These books are sooooooo long and there are quite a few, but somehow they are all wonderful and captivating. Another finished and a huge smile on my face remembering again so many wonderful passages and humor. ( )

3 stars - because I'm feeling generous.

I wept when I finished this book - and not because it was sentimental or especially nostalgic - but because I was so relieved to have finally crossed the finish line.

If you've read through six of these things then it will be no spoiler to note that I absolutely can not handle another sniveling, defenseless female being raped (or gang raped) by a group of bawdy men absolutely unable to control themselves at the sight of a woman alone. A few times was enough to make me fast forward - but that every single time a woman ends up alone in this series and is not only unable to defend herself but always in danger of being raped - makes me seriously speculate that Gabaldon must entertain a wide variety of rape-fantasies. Ffs - please keep them in your head from here on out.

To top it off - the entire first 3/4 of this book was a very beautifully and thoroughly-written description of 18th-century subsistence/homestead living. Absolutely nothing aside from kidnapping and rape occurred at all - unless you count detailed medical descriptions of Claire's healing efforts on the Ridge or abundant childbirth and violent death.

The last quarter of the book felt more like the Voyager I fell head over heels for.

I think a very long break is in order before I decide it it will be worth it to brave book 7.

But I think you could probably skip the last two books and not have missed much. ( )

Just as with all of the books in the Outlander series, this one is long and chunky. I enjoy reading this series in small doses over several months, in between other books. Always rooting for Claire and Jamie and Brianna and Roger! And Young Ian and Fergus and...and... Lots of good people but there's also despicable characters. Onwards to the next one! ( )

De mensheid ziet in vele dingen de hand van God, tijd is daar één van. Leven volgt op een volgend leven, daar is geen einde aan. Men is doordrongen van zijn macht, want niets immers - bergen nog legers - kan het opnemen tegen tijd?
Natuurlijk, tijd heelt alle wonden. Geef iets genóég tijd en alles komt goed: pijn wordt geabsorbeerd, ontberingen vergeten, verlies krijgt een plaats.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Onthoudt dat gij van stof zijt, mens, en tot stof zult hij wederkeren.
En als Tijd verbonden is met God, moet Herinnering gelijk staan aan de Duivel
