It is June 1778, and the world seems to be turning upside-down. The British Army is withdrawing from Philadelphia, with George Washington in pursuit, and for the first time, it looks as if the rebels might actually win. But for Claire Fraser and her family, there are even more tumultuous revolutions that have to be accommodated.
Meanwhile, in the 20th century, her descendants face even more desperate turns of events. Her daughter Brianna is trying to protect her son from a vicious criminal with murder on his mind, while her husband Roger has disappeared into the past…
Written In My Own Heart’s Blood is the continuation of what I think is the most romantic love story to date. You must read all the books in order, including the novellas, to fully understand the story. This is a mini review and spoiler free.
I love spending time again with my favorite Outlander characters. The love has become stronger for all the couples and as in previous books they each must deal with some drama. Of all the couples Roger and Bree’s story was the most exciting. As it left in the last book Roger and Bree are frantically searching for their son. I enjoyed the twists in their story and now fully understand what happened in the novella A Leaf On The Wind Of All Hallows. The excitement I felt with the characters were disappointingly interrupted with the historical details. I found this aspect of the series drags the books and I know I’m not alone in feeling this. But I will continue on with this series since I can’t get enough of the Fraser clan.
