Jamie , a veteran of the last Scottish uprising in 1745, must lead men into battle once again while Claire, a doctor, accompanies him. Their love is the focal part of the story but it is not a romance. Issues including slavery, native Americans, and the revolution from both sides are explored in this novel.
