(Of course, I will change the rating to 5-Stars once this is corrected and audible is available for it.)
The incredibly addictive soap opera plot aside, this book--as are the others in the series--is really about love, honor and duty. Love for family, love for country, the honor of the clan, the duty to serve others. Reading between the lines, it's advice on how we should live.
A word of warning: You must begin with "Outlander" and work your way through the series in the proper order. Taking this on is quite a reading and time commitment. The books are all long. Very long. "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" checks in at more than 1,400 pages. But they are SO GOOD! This is the ultimate in escapist reading. And when you realize how good it is and wish it would never end...well, it's so long it almost doesn't.

What was made plain is that this is a time that people just got strung up, hanged, for little reason? Sometimes to get rid of an irritating neighbour. These are fast-moving times, people coming and then disappearing out of the book. I rather like that. If the detail gets too much I now skip bits but Diana sometimes hides little gems within the laborious detail, so be warned, you could miss something important if you skip some of the narratives.
Another excellent book, although I'm now quite worried about Brianna!
It only dragged a bit - no time travel except a little at the end. It is mostly a tale of life in N. America in the 1770's.
It was book I could "put down" and then "pick up" a while later. Some of the earlier books I couldn't put down.
Overall "Not too bad" and good enough to make me buy book 7.
Diana Gabaldon is an avid researcher that makes it come to life
