Well, I'm now with them in America, about 10 years before the Revolution. That'll make Jamie over 50 during the Revolution, maybe too old to fight? Although I can see him leading men again. Assuming they survive the alleged fire of course.
Given Claire's feelings about slavery and what she knows of the Civil War, about 100 years from the time they are in now I'm a bit surprised they didn't head further north to homestead. Surely she realizes that the descendants of all of Jamie's followers will wind up on what she will consider the wrong side of that war. Of course then they couldn't have all the slavery related drama. Wish they could live until Oregon Trail times!
Very hard to put down. Although I haven't gotten to The Fiery Cross yet... But I'll push through that having been encouraged by you all that the series gets better again.
