From the back cover:

From the author of Outlander... a magnificient epic that once again sweeps up back in time to the drama and passion of 18th-century Scotland... Dragonfly in Amber.
For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland's majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: abotu the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones... about a love that transcends the boundaries of time... and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his...
Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful, copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire's spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart... in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising... and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves...

Paperback purchased at a library book sale to read and share.

6 out of 10

My least favorite of the series so far- but that's not saying much, as it's only book 2! But I did find this one almost grueling to get through and not as "fun" to read as the first book. There are many aspects of it that intrigued me and I loved it as well though- don't get me wrong! It just seemed very long. Maybe it had something to do with my not having as much free time to read the last few months- so the process of getting through the book seemed too slow and choppy to flow. It took me about 25-26 hrs of actual reading time (yes, I timed it with a bookmark timer)- but over 5 months to complete.

The ending was good- and as usual, making me want to go ahead into the next book to see what happens next!! But I will break and read something else in the meantime and then get back to the Gabaldon series after that.
