VoyagerBook - 1994
In this rich, vibrant tale, Diana Gabaldon continues the story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser that began with the now-classic novel Outlander and continued in Dragonfly in Amber. 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.
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.
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.
Praise for Voyager
" Voyager is, frankly, an amazing read. An unusual mix of romance, suspense and history. . . . If you can put this huge tome down before dawn, you're made of sterner stuff than I am." -- Arizona Tribune
"Rousing . . . audacious . . . exciting . . . Gabaldon masterfully weaves . . . flashbacks . . . crossing time periods with abandon but never losing track of the story." -- Locus
"Unconventional . . . memorable storytelling." -- The Seattle Times

"The first thing you do when I find you is faint, and as soon as I've got you back on your feet, you get me assaulted in a pub and chased through Edinburgh in company with a deviant Chinese, ending up in a brothel--whose madam seems to be on awfully familiar terms with you, I might add. You then take off your clothes, announce that you're a terrible person with a depraved past, and take me to bed. What did you expect me to think?"-Claire
"I have burned for you for twenty years, Sassenach. Do ye not know that? Jesus! But I'm no the man ye knew, twenty years past, am I? We know each other now less than we did when we wed."-Jamie
"First I'm a Sassenach, and now I'm a dogsbody. What do you Scots call people when you're trying to be nice?-Brianna
"Samhain--hallowe'en, you know?--that's one of the feasts when it was customary to try to divine the future. And one of the ways of divination was to walk to the end of the house, and then step outside with your eyes closed. The first thing you see when you open them is an omen for the near future."-Roger
