“It has always been forever, for me, Sassenach”
Claire and Jamie have been separated twenty years after the battle of Culloden. Claire went back to her life in the 1940s to raise her and Jamie’s daughter Brianna and back to her life with Frank. Her relationship with Frank is estranged and the only thing keeping them together is their love for Brianna. Claire spends her time between the hospital where she has become a surgeon and as a mother.
When Claire finds herself back in Scotland with proof that Jamie is alive, she knows she has to go back.
Jamie, after Culloden finds himself in tough situations for many including hiding out in a cave and in prison. Twenty years later he finds himself in Edinburgh where he owns a print shop. This is ultimately how Claire finds him and they reunite.
Jamie and Claire are instantly thrown into a whirlwind of adventure while they try and reconnect as they get use to being back in each others life. They both need to reconcile their pasts as so much has happened in their lives.
“Do ye not understand?”he said, in near desparation. “I would lay the world at your feet, Claire-and I have nothing to give ye!”
He honestly thought it mattered.”
Jamie and Claire are one of my favourite couples and nothing made me happier then when they were able to reconnect. Their relationship strengthens as they come to rely on each other but they do overcome many obstacles to get there.
However there were some circumstances and choices that I didn’t like or that I didn’t like reading but overall it was still an amazing book and an amazing series. I just love Jamie and Claire so much and their story is truly epic and unique.
“Then kiss me, Claire,” he whispered, “And know that you are more to me than life, and I have no regret.”
