À propos

B>The author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Outlander series returns with the newest novel in the epic tale./b>br> br>The past may seem the safest place to be . . . but it is the most dangerous time to be alive. . . .br> br>Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1743, and it took them twenty years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same.br> br>It is 1779 and Claire and Jamie are at last reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband, Roger, and their children on Frasers Ridge. Having the family together is a dream the Frasers had thought impossible.br> br>Yet even in the North Carolina backcountry, the effects of war are being felt. Tensions in the Colonies are great and local feelings run hot enough to boil Hells tea-kettle. Jamie knows loyalties among his tenants are split and it wont be long until the war is on his doorstep.br> br>Brianna and Roger have their own worry: that the dangers that provoked their escape from the twentieth century might catch up to them. Sometimes they question whether risking the perils of the 1700s--among them disease, starvation, and an impending war--was indeed the safer choice for their family.br> br>Not so far away, young William Ransom is still coming to terms with the discovery of his true fathers identity--and thus his own--and Lord John Grey has reconciliations to make, and dangers to meet . . . on his sons behalf, and his own.br> br>Meanwhile, the Revolutionary War creeps ever closer to Frasers Ridge. And with the family finally together, Jamie and Claire have more at stake than ever before.

Diana Gabaldon

Titulaire d'une maîtrise en biologie marine et d'un doctorat en écologie, Diana Gabaldon a enseigné douze ans à l'université avant de se consacrer à plein temps au roman, alors qu'elle n'avait jamais publié jusque là que des ouvrages de recherche. A la fois récit d'aventures, épopée amoureuse et fresque historique, son imposante saga du " Cercle de Pierre ", qui mer en scène un highlander du XVIIIe siècle et une Britannique du XXe siècle, connaît un succès triomphal tant auprès des lecteurs que de la critique, aux Etats-Unis comme ailleurs. Une variation exceptionnelle sur le thème, romanesque entre tous, du voyage dans le temps
