In this new epic of imagination, time travel, and adventure, Diana Gabaldon continues the riveting story begun in Outlander.
Jamie Fraser is an eighteenth-century Highlander, an ex-Jacobite traitor, and a reluctant rebel in the American Revolution. His wife, Claire Randall Fraser, is a surgeon—from the twentieth century. What she knows of the future compels him to fight. What she doesn’t know may kill them both.

With one foot in America and one foot in Scotland, Jamie and Claire’s adventure spans the Revolution, from sea battles to printshops, as their paths cross with historical figures from Benjamin Franklin to Benedict Arnold. 

Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, their daughter, Brianna, and her husband experience the unfolding drama of the Revolutionary War through Claire’s letters. But the letters can’t warn them of the threat that’s rising out of the past to overshadow their family.

Diana Gabaldon’s sweeping Outlander saga reaches new heights in An Echo in the Bone.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Diana Gabaldon's Written in My Own Heart's Blood.

    Ms. Gabaldon's gift of creating riveting story lines set in the past is keeping me up nights. I cannot stop reading until the end of each book. And then I cannot wait until I read the next book of the series.

  • Outlander Series

    By MStutts
    I read these books over fifteen years and have been a fan since day one. I cannot wait for the next one! Will all of the hanging issues be resolved? Will the war ever end? I have read and reread this series so many times that I feel I know the characters. I will have to reread Echo to remember all of the issues right before the new on comes out!

    I wasn't sure I would be interested in a novel which included time travel, but it came recommended, and I do like thick novels , so I began with Outlander, the first of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed it and all the rest of the series. Great character development, a riveting story line, historical relevance and two-continents of action made the series a wonderful time-consuming read. Diana Gabaldon is first on my list when e-shopping or store-shopping for books to read at home or while traveling.
  • She does not end the story,

    By Nce902
    I am not a fan of authors who do not end a work but, essentially end with, to be continued. So Ms. Gabbaldon leaves one character traveling through time, one child character locked into a tunnel and there is no end. I don't intend to purchase any others of her books. END the story. Don't waste your time unless you want to continue to purchase additional titles by the author. Shame on her and the publisher, what a cheap trick!
