What book does Frank Randall die and how does he die?

While waiting for the next book I'd recommend Philippa Gregory's books. I just finished reading The Other Boleyn and thought it was really good and can't wait to get another book of hers.

I am a very devoted fan of Diana's, however I am in need of good quality reading material while I wait for book 7. Does any one out there have any suggestions? And may I recommend "Kristen Lavransdatter" by Sigrid Undset. If you liked Outlander et al, you definitly like this one too.

Will we ever find out who tryed to poision Clair in Dragonfly in Amber all Raymond said was that he sold bitter cascara to 2 people one a maid of Vicomtessa de Rambeau and the other a man he did not recognize. This happened just after for 1. Clair and Mothet Hildegarde decode a letter and Mothet Hildegarde being friends with the King's singing- master and who happens to be friends with Louise de Rohan, Prince Charles Stuart's girlfriend. 2. Raymond made a very strange remark. When Clair told him that her husband was scared out of his skin. Raymond said Oh your husband was present? Where else would he be? Raymond said that perhaps it was done by a woman because of jealousy what about this woman that Jamie fought his first duel over? What did this man look like and why didn't Clair ask Raymond? That seemed so out of character for Clair not to confront Vicomtessa or if Jamie had nothing to do with it why he didn't question anyone and just let it go. Where was Murtagh? Did Jamie have him buy the Bitter Cascara from Raymond and poision his wife. It just seems so out of Chatacter for both of them to just let it go and be happy with a crystal that they were told changed colors if poision was present but! they never tryed it they just took frog persons word for it.

A friend recommended this book and I am in the middle of it. Now my reading is planned out for years as I'll start the "Outlander"series after I finish this book!

I came across the Diana Gabaldon books after returning from Scotland last summer,August 2005. I enjoy the story so much, I have a had a hard time to put them down. Reading them makes me feel like I am there. They are wonderful interesting stories, that seem like a real life story.

Hi. I think these books are the best I have ever read - and I have been reading for 40 years! So much detail and research has gone into them. The characters are so real (does anyone else find Bree irritating?)The descripions of settings and other detail paints a wonderful picture in the mind. The development of the story line(s) is like the carrot in front of the donkey and I could not put these books down, even if I had been reading for 6 hours! Someone asked about Jamie's aunty - she was Jocasta Cameron. Someone else said they found Diana Gabaldon's attitude annoying - I agree. Her commentary on the website and also in parts of Through the Stones is very off-putting and makes me feel almost uncomfortable. Still, I just love these stories and I credit Diana with being the author capable of inducing a love of reading in my previously uninterested daughter! One more thing, someone was wanting to know about other good books - definitely try Sara Donati's Into the Wilderness series.

I just finished listening to Breath of Snow and Ashes on CD. It was great...2 weeks of commuting and the book was done.
