<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • <b>NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY <i>BOOKLIST</i></b></b><br /><br />In her now classic novel <i>Outlander, </i>Diana Gabaldon told the story of Claire Randall, an English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone circle in the Scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears . . . into 1743. The story unfolded from there in seven bestselling novels, and CNN has called it “a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries].” Now the story continues in <i>Written in My Own Heart’s Blood</i>.<br />  <br /> 1778: France declares war on Great Britain, the British army leaves Philadelphia, and George Washington’s troops leave Valley Forge in pursuit. At this moment, Jamie Fraser returns from a presumed watery grave to discover that his best friend has married his wife, his illegitimate son has discovered (to his horror) who his father really is, and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to marry a Quaker. Meanwhile, Jamie’s wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are busy picking up the pieces.<br />  <br /> The Frasers can only be thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in twentieth-century Scotland. Or not. In fact, Brianna is  searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to learn her family’s secrets. Her husband, Roger, has ventured into the past in search of the missing boy . . . never suspecting that the object of his quest has not left the present. Now, with Roger out of the way, the kidnapper can focus on his true target: Brianna herself.<br />  <br /> <i>Written in My Own Heart’s Blood</i> is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Written in My Own Heart’s Blood</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “[<i>Written in My Own Heart’s Blood</i>] features all the passion and swashbuckling that fans of this historical fantasy series have come to expect.”<b>—<i>People</i></b><br />  <br />“Another breakneck, rip-roaring, oh-so-addictive page-turner from Gabaldon . . . Take a deep breath, jump aboard, and enjoy the ride.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i></b><br /><br />“With her Outlander series, Gabaldon . . . successfully [juggles] a sizable and captivating cast of characters; developing thrilling plotlines that borrow equally from adventure, history, and romance; and meticulously integrating a wealth of fascinating period details into the story without slowing down the pace. The result is a sprawling and enthralling saga that is guaranteed to keep readers up long past their bedtimes.”<b>—<i>Booklist </i>(starred review)</b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Diana Gabaldon's <i>A Breath of Snow and Ashes.<br /></i><br /><b>The dazzling fifth volume of Diana Gabaldon’s extraordinary Outlander saga, featuring 18th-century Scotsman James Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.</b><br /><br /> The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge. <br /><br /> Born in the year of Our Lord 1918, Claire Randall served England as a nurse on the battlefields of World War II, and in the aftermath of peace found fresh conflicts when she walked through a cleftstone on the Scottish Highlands and found herself an outlander, an English lady in a place where no lady should be, in a time—1743—when the only English in Scotland were the officers and men of King George’s army.<br /><br /> Now wife, mother, and surgeon, Claire is still an outlander, out of place, and out of time, but now, by choice, linked by love to her only anchor—Jamie Fraser. Her unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead—or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes....<br /><br /> Grand, sweeping, utterly unforgettable, <i>The Fiery Cross</i> is riveting entertainment, a vibrant tapestry of history and human drama.

<b>Diana Gabaldon’s brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. In <i>An Echo in the Bone,</i> the seventh volume, Gabaldon continues the extraordinary story of the eighteenth-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.</b><br /><br /> Jamie Fraser, former Jacobite and reluctant rebel, is already certain of three things about the American rebellion: The Americans will win, fighting on the side of victory is no guarantee of survival, and he’d rather die than have to face his illegitimate son—a young lieutenant in the British army—across the barrel of a gun.<br /><br /> Claire Randall knows that the Americans will win, too, but not what the ultimate price may be. That price won’t include Jamie’s life or his happiness, though—not if she has anything to say about it.<br /><br /> Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, Jamie and Claire’s daughter, Brianna, and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, have resettled in a historic Scottish home where, across a chasm of two centuries, the unfolding drama of Brianna’s parents’ story comes to life through Claire’s letters. The fragile pages reveal Claire’s love for battle-scarred Jamie Fraser and their flight from North Carolina to the high seas, where they encounter privateers and ocean battles—as Brianna and Roger search for clues not only to Claire’s fate but to their own. Because the future of the MacKenzie family in the Highlands is mysteriously, irrevocably, and intimately entwined with life and death in war-torn colonial America.<br /><br /> With stunning cameos of historical characters from Benedict Arnold to Benjamin Franklin, <i>An Echo in the Bone</i> is a soaring masterpiece of imagination, insight, character, and adventure—a novel that echoes in the mind long after the last page is turned.<br /><br /><b>BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Diana Gabaldon's <i>Written in My Own Heart's Blood.</i></b>

<b>NOW THE STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES <i>OUTLANDER</i></b><br /><br /> <i>In this rich, vibrant tale, Diana Gabaldon continues the story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser that began with the now-classic novel </i>Outlander <i>and continued in </i>Dragonfly in Amber. <i>Sweeping us from the battlefields of eighteenth-century Scotland to the exotic West Indies, Diana Gabaldon weaves magic once again in an exhilarating and utterly unforgettable novel.</i><br /><br /> <b>VOYAGER</b><br /><br /> Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her . . . and her body still cries out for him in her dreams.<br /><br /> Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and the pain awaiting her . . . the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland . . . and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite—or forever doom—her timeless love.<br /><br /> <b>Praise for <i>Voyager</i></b><br /><br /> “<i>Voyager</i> is, frankly, an amazing read.

Gabaldon masterfully weaves . . . flashbacks . . . crossing time periods with abandon but never losing track of the story.”<b>—<i>Locus</i></b><br /><br /> “Unconventional . . . memorable storytelling.”<b>—<i>The Seattle Times</i></b>
