I seem to recall that Jamie's Aunt was the one that wanted Brianna to marry Lord John. This was when she was pregnant and Roger was not around. Sorry but I can't recall the AUn'ts name, but she ws the one that had the large estate in NC.

I love the series, and have read it over and over , and still find new things to interest me in the books.I have had them for three years and even my husband liked to read the stories. He was a lot like the character in our generation. He was about the same size and his career was a highway patrol officer.He is now deceased, but he really loved the books. He was a interesting person and liked all sort of things. I really do understand the moitivation that drove Claire to return over time.

I am glad someone else mentioned claire narrying lord john grey. I had been starting to wonder if I had imagined it as the excerpts have been "temporarily" removed from DG's website (for the last few months , ie, since the release of a Breath of Snow and Ashes) What does everyone think of this development?

Hi I want to know if there is a book called King Farewell. I live in Australia and wonder if the title is a different name?

By the end of ABOSAA, Claire is 60 and Jamie is 56.
Diana has stated that there will be at least one more book, possibly two, that will take us through the year 1800.
I, for one, will be dying with anticipation!

Has anyone travelled to Scotland and visited the sites that are described in the Outlander series? I would love to go to Scotland next summer and don't know what tour package I should take. Any ideas?

It's not your math. By my reckoning....Claire was 28 at the beginning of Outlander, add three years...then Brianna is born....add 20 years....then 3 more years for Jem to be conceived, born and grow...so she's about 54 or so at the time of the "pregnancy scare"/rape. Your math is pretty close. What may be off is your knowledge of female biology. Women can continue to menstruate well into their fifties, albeit some sporadically. In modern times, most women don't want to start families in the fifties, in olden times, women tended to burn out pretty young. So, indeed, it would be a "scare" to find oneself pregnant at 54-56 years of age. Anyway...hope that helps.
PS. Doesn't Claire ponder all this in the book...medically and personally speaking?

There's a pregnancy scare in the book. She has got to be at least 56, so she'd be the oldest recorded mom in history. Is my math off?

I finished Diana's latest book "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" and hope very much that Diana Gabaldon continues with another book. I emailed her and asked if she would. I would love to know what happens to Jamie and Claire in Scotland again. Do they visit his sister? As well what happens to Ian, the Bugs and the gold. to Ian, etc.. Jamie and Claire have at least 20 years more together.

Awesome...Just Awesome. Thats what I think of the new book.This ones as good or better than the rest have been. I have heard that there will be at least one more, maybe two more books. Check out Diana Gabaldon Home page... It gives a little more info and excerpts. Enjoy. I want the next book NOW! Hope I can wait!
