There are so many amazing book trailers being made, so each week I will select a trailer that caught my eye and added the book to my TBR (To Be Read) list.
This week’s pick is:
WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD is the eighth novel in the world-famous OUTLANDER series. In June of 1778, the world turns upside-down. The British army withdraws from Philadelphia, George Washington prepares to move from Valley Forge in pursuit, and Jamie Fraser comes back from the dead to discover that his best friend has married Jamie’s wife. The ninth Earl of Ellesmere discovers to his horror that he is in fact the illegitimate son of the newly-resurrected Jamie Fraser (a rebel _and_ a Scottish criminal!) and Jamie’s nephew Ian Murray discovers that his new-found cousin has an eye for Ian’s Quaker betrothed.
Meanwhile, Claire Fraser deals with an asthmatic duke, Benedict Arnold, and the fear that one of her husbands may have murdered the other. And in the 20th century, Jamie and Claire’s daughter Brianna is thinking that things are probably easier in the 18th century: her son has been kidnapped, her husband has disappeared into the past, and she’s facing a vicious criminal with nothing but a stapler in her hand. Fortunately, her daughter has a miniature cricket bat and her mother’s pragmatism.
The best of historical fiction with a Moebius twist, WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD weaves the fibers of a family’s life through the tapestry of historical drama.
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood is the 8th book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. I think only fans of this series (like me) would appreciate this trailer. This book isn’t a standalone so you have to read the first 7 books or else you would be confused. This trailer is simple but the images and script has me so excited for this book. Outlander fans have been waiting 4 years for this book, so we don’t need a flashy trailer.
As a bonus for this week here is the latest trailer for the Starz Outlander series, which premiers August 9!!
