From the author of Outlander... a magnificent epic that once again sweeps us back in time to the drama and passion of 18th-century Scotland...

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland's majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones ...about a love that transcends the boundaries of time ...and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his ....

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire's spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart ...in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising ...and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves....

              The book was a replacment for one lost by a friend. I chose the book and selected the cover that matched my set, when it arrived it was not the one shown on the net.

                Finally re-read Dragonfly and enjoyed it even more than the first time!
                Diana Gabaldon is one of those writers who knows how to keep her
                readers interested from page 1 to the end. Nearly 1000 pages and
                I never got bored! Now well into Voyager.
