by Diana Gabaldon | Read by Davina Porter

The long awaited eighth installment in the enormously popular Outlander series is narrated with grace and zeal by Davina Porter. Beloved Claire Randall Fraser was introduced in the first novel as a British WWII nurse who disappeared in a Scottish stone circle and traveled back in time to the same spot in 1743. Now she’s in the American Colonies in 1778. Believing her beloved Highlander husband, Jamie, to be dead, Claire agrees to marry Lord John Grey for political protection. Porter portrays the wide cast with impressive range. Even in the most complex conversations, the listener can clearly discern which character is speaking. Porter’s most outstanding depiction is that of Claire herself—a woman who is deeply passionate and intelligent. Often her voice carries undertones of bubbling laughter or suppressed derision. Simply enchanting. N.M.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2015 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
