Drums of Autumn | Diana Gabaldon

Drums of Autumn finds Jamie, Claire, young Ian, and Fergus in the American frontier. For much of the book we are following duel storylines, one following the gang traveling to North Carolina and eventually settling a new homestead there, and one following Brianna and Roger’s budding romance in the ‘present’.

I am torn about this volume in the series, to be honest. I found it much more compelling than Dragonfly in Amber much of the time, but at the same time I thought everyone was acting out of character at one point or another (some definitely worse than others). It is this issue that pretty much ruins the book for me.
