Summary
The second part of the series from Diana Gabaldon that explores the power of a love which transcends space and time. A magnificent epic that once again sweeps us back in time to the drama and passion of 18th-century Scotland...For twenty years 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 James 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 am enjoying this series and was curious about the subtle differences between book and TV series. Definitely glad to have the opportunity to listen to this series. The change of perspective in the beginning and end of the book confused me slightly but over all very happy!

Started very strong, lost interest a little over half way through but continued on. Then it got really good again. Left me wanting the next book in the series.

The second installment of Claire and Jamie Fraser did not disappoint. It's particularly interesting to hear what's changed between the show and the book.

Didn't want it to end! Glad that I had read 'Outlander' first or I'm not sure that it would have grabbed me as much as it did. L would have liked more resolution in the book, it's obviously set up for a sequel, and personally that's not something that I like.

Brilliant story, wonderful characters and absolutely brilliant narrator. Even though the book is very long, you keep wanting more. I'm completely fascinated by Jamie & Claire and their lives in the 1700s.

I enjoyed this book. Narration was great. It's rare that a sequel matches the original story, however this story rises above the first book, which in itself is a powerful read. Can't wait to read the next. The series strengthens my love for my wife.

I first read this book in hard back in the 90s. I love the contrast of the extreme abundance of France they experience, vs. the deprivation of their time on road with the Jacobite warriors. The new characters introduced are interesting and well fleshed out and and the twists in the plotline are unexpected. I also like that she puts a different face on Prince Charles than the usual, excepted personality. The amount of research that has to go into her stories is staggering. Not just the big things like the war, the Gaelic language and medical treatments of time, but the small details that make Claire a real 20th century English woman. I was very surprised to find out that the author is an American. The narrator has such a beautiful and versatile voice that it is usually to tell which character is speaking. Like many Americans, I am entranced by a lovely english accent and I could listen to Davina Porter all day. Truth be told, some days I have.

I love 'historical adventure' and this absolutely blew me away! This second book in the saga (of I think its a 6 book seris) was incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed 'Outlander' (the first book) but this 2nd one.. WOW!! Diana Gabaldon is my new 'Favorite Author' taking the place of 'Wilbur Smith' by a hairs breadth. This tale is in a genre of its own surely because it has pretty much everything in one. Political intrigue with the 'Jacobite rising', sci-fi with time travel, romance ans drama, with a huge dollop of adventure and mystery. Im hooked!!!! (Hook, line and sinkered.) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL. 5*

Second in the series and enjoy the continuity of narrator, as she is very clear and does a fine job distinguishing voices. The story is a continuation of Outlander and despite its length, is well worth the time invested.

I love these books! I have read the series before and now love to listen to them as I drive, sew, or work. The narration is fabulous, and the books are fast paced, and interesting. I'm glad they are long, as I listen at night while going to sleep. There is considerable substance to the books; they seem to be well-researched. I love them.

I can't get enough of this series. I am often in the car and listen while driving. It makes the trip go by so quickly. I have seen the series on TV and the show is very close to the book. I look forward to starting the next one so I am ready when the series starts up again. The narration is fantastic with the different accents she uses. Very well done!

I'm very lucky that I can listen to books on audio while I work. Diana Gabaldon Outlander series has been fantastic. I've just finished Dragonfly in Amber and have now started Voyager. This is one of the best character driven stories, I've ever read. I love the time period and Scottish history also. Davina Porters reading is excellent.

Ms. Gabaldon has done it again! Besides the edge-of-your-seat action scenes, her portrayal of the loving relationship between Claire and Jamie is so tender and ideal it will reset the bar if you're not in a relationship, and inject an air of sweetness if you are in an intimate relationship. Bravo!

Finished yesterday for the nth time. Sandwich book. "Present day" builds up and then back to the time when Claire and Jamie are together, which builds up when they are parted, back to "Present day" only to find out that Jamie didn't die at the Battle of Culloden. Can't wait to read the next one. Also, many times it is seen how Claire and maybe Jamie too are just watching the intrigues, helpless to stop the catastophe - like a Dragonfly in Amber.

I love the Outlander series, and have read all the books in print. Davina Porter provides a fabulous narration of Dragonfly in Amber. The many characters are easily differentiated and come alive in the audio. Davina Porter is going on my favorite narrator list, right up there with George Guidall. I'm "rereading" the series by audio during my commute--a pleasant way to start and end my workday!
