Publisher's Summary

In which Lord John, anticipating a voyage home to England after his brief stint as military Governor of Jamaica, instead finds himself on his way to Cuba, where the British navy is preparing to lay siege to Havana - and where the Dowager Duchess of Pardloe (aka John’s mother) is a guest (and potential hostage) of Governor Juan de Prado. 

One of the two final novellas of Seven Stones to Stand or Fall. This collection of Outlander novellas are all dealing with the interesting side-stories and lacunae of the Outlander universe.

Lord John From Jamaica To Havana

This was published as one of the seven novellas in ‘Seven Stones to Stand or Fall’ but then published as stand alone Audible book. It is another view of how Lord John Gray has become a very important character in the Outlander world. After his mother tells him how she has written about event and will publish just for her family, he remembers to himself how he wrote letters to Jamie Fraser but never sent them. This is a short story about the English attack on Havana and how Lord John must get there ahead of the attack because his mother and cousin are there. Short story but still very entertaining as are all of Diana’s stories. The world of Outlander is all encompassing. Jeff Woodman has become Lord John and is excellent as narrator.

good, but too short.

Another great book by Diana Gabaldon, but I wish some of the familiar characters from her novels in the Outlander series had been included. Also, it was WAY too brief. I love Ms. Gabaldon's long, satisfying novels. This was disappointingly short.
