This one took me awhile to read, because I kept putting it down. But I finally decided the other day I was going to finish it, if just to find out why/how Claire ended up back in present day with Brianna.
The romance between Jamie and Claire is just amazing, mesmerizing, loin quivering, and so many other things. Their love of each other, tops my list of romances, and the amount of suffering they have been through is just meaningful.
So many heartrendering scenes, the loss of the first babe, watching Alex/Mary's struggles, Fergus, Colum dying, Dougal dying, Claire having to align with Jack Randall, why she was thrust back through the portal, and finally ending with, Jamie didn't die like she thought.
A powerful powerful book.
