This sixth novel in Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling Outlander saga is a masterpiece of historical fiction from one of the most popular authors of our time. A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the extraordinary story of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century wife, Claire.

The year is 1772, and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit. Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest.

With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown. But from his wife Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence—with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie’s death, along with his kin. For once, he hopes, his time-traveling family may be wrong about the future.

    That's all that's worth saying. Bought this when they were on sale and its the last one of the series I own and the last one I'll be reading. Meh.

    I have been trying to buy this book on line for the past 3 days, and each attempt is met with a reply that "This item is being modified, please try again later" Can this be fixed?

    Never tire of reading the saga of Clare and Jamie. Each book so far had been interesting and entertaining with a touch of humor here and there. I have told many of this series and look forward to reading the next. Thanks, Diana Gabaldon
