Look what I found at Wal-Mart!!
Hubby and I were out and about yesterday and of course found ourselves at Wal-Mart - so after meandering around for a bit looking at this and that we wound up in the book section. *smile*
I squealed like a little girl and did the happy dance right there in the aisle. Hubby, of course, is used to this reaction when I am around books - so he was not fazed one bit. LOL I can't wait to read this book.
Jamie Fraser, erstwhile Jacobite and reluctant rebel, knows three things about the American rebellion: the Americans will win, unlikely as that seems in 1778; being on the winning side is no guarantee of survival; and he'd rather die than face his illegitimate son - a young lieutenant in the British Army - across the barrel of a gun. Fraser's time-travelling wife, Claire, also knows a couple of things: that the Americans will win, but that the ultimate price of victory is a mystery. What she does believe is that the price won't include Jamie's life or happiness - not if she has anything to say.
Claire's grown daughter Brianna, and her husband, Roger, watch the unfolding of Brianna's parents' history - a past that may be sneaking up behind their own family.
