New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

A lot of story in one book, could’ve almost been split into two stories. Although a great follow on from Outlander. The recording can be a bit hard to listen to sometimes and you can hear voices repeating in the background, which takes you away from the story.

Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

I love the TV series so decided to reading the books, glad to see they a both so similar but still have a few differences that allow you to enjoy the extra details of the book.
Only negative aspect is that at some points of the story you can hear background noise (like people conversing) faintly while the narrator is speaking.
