#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Diana Gabaldon returns with the newest novel in the epic Outlander series.
The past may seem the safest place to be . . . but it is the most dangerous time to be alive. . . .

Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1746, and it took them twenty years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same.
It is 1779 and Claire and Jamie are at last reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband, Roger, and their children on Fraser’s Ridge. Having the family together is a dream the Frasers had thought impossible.
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 Hell’s teakettle. Jamie knows loyalties among his tenants are split and it won’t be long until the war is on his doorstep.
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.
Not so far away, young William Ransom is still coming to terms with the discovery of his true father’s identity—and thus his own—and Lord John Grey has reconciliations to make, and dangers to meet . . . on his son’s behalf, and his own.
Meanwhile, the Revolutionary War creeps ever closer to Fraser’s Ridge. And with the family finally together, Jamie and Claire have more at stake than ever before.

  • Love the title

  • Go Tell the Bees

    By millie ZZ
    I was so excited to see the book available because I have loved each book and novella in this series, and was so disappointed. It seemed that more than half the book was spent retelling the stories in the previous books,and the history of each character, so that this could be a stand alone book. I understand that, but felt that in this case, it was way too much. The book finally got me involved, until I started wishing it would be over. Then it got really good, and suddenly ended. Really disappointed, or perhaps I have simply outgrown this series. Either way, I did not feel that satisfaction you you have when you finish a book and think, “Wow, that was a great read,” or, “I love this book! I want more,” when you have fallen in love with the characters and you want to see more of them.
  • Fits for the series but not much on its own

    By JPplesh
    Not a bad book. Not a lot happened though, for the size of this thing. Still had a lot of great character moments and payoffs just too much everyday homesteader life. We get it Claire can cook now better than she can doctor. But really besides all of the cooking I still enjoyed this one. Hence 3 average.
  • Just no.

    By dancin evergreen
    I waited so long for this book, and there was really no story until the last hundred pages. Just filler, just felt like she was too bored with the whole thing. So disappointing.
  • Not fully satisfying

    By MacFroggy
    This novel is well worth reading for loyal Outlander fans. On its own, however, it does not have the page-turning energy of other books in the series. Several story lines are begun but dropped. The ending is almost comically abrupt. Some will find all this satisfyingly open ended while others will wish for more closure. Perhaps (hopefully) there is another installment to come. I look forward to reading it if it does! Outlander is still one of my favorite series.
  • Go Tell the Bees That I Have Gone

    By Knightsbane
    It is an intensely woven book about the Frasier & Mac Kenzie’s daily life on Frasier ‘s Ridge. There are off shoots into others lives but not as many as past books. The American Revolution is touched on but not nearly so many incidents as in past. Bees is a delight to take up with old friends and see what’s happening in their lives.
  • Disappointed Outlander Fan

    By asmoberly
    OK so I’ve been an Outlander fan before the show, way way way back like the 90s. I found the plot and this book to be a mess and like most of it to be filler and fluff the character development is practically nonexistent. I feel like it was the success of the show that pressured the author to write this. Compared to the earlier books this one is a complete let down.
  • An interesting 20 years

    By ExBritinUSA
    I purchased my first Outlander book thirty years ago when it was first published and have read and re read my expanding collection several times as I anxiously waited for the next one to be published. As the books turned into a television series (very well done) this book ‘Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone’ seemed to take forever to be published, understandably. I assumed it was the last in the series, and as I read I kept asking myself questions - things seemed to be missing or unfinished although I seemed to be nearing the end. So I’ve just turned the page and WHAM - you got me, it’s done, there has to be another book! Please, please don’t take so long on the next one - I started this series in my forties, I’m now in my mid seventies. I need to know how it ends before I do! Thank you Diana, for my favorite series EVER!
  • But…where’s the story?

    By ThanatosK
    99% filler and unnecessary stuff. Very little story development, just a lot of side stuff that means nothing and fills pages. Did this take so long to write because she couldn’t think of a story or a plot?
