Time travelling always attracts the attention of many people especially if it has history attached to it. Diana Gabaldon creates a new thrilling series that shifts back and forth in time and makes us a little dizzy at the start. Once the listener gets hold of the story the rest of the journey is an enjoyable ride in the roller coaster.
Davina Porter has also narrated the story quite beautifully especially the love scenes that are the key elements in this time travelling scenario. The novel also reminds us of other stories like Voyager and The Fiery Cross in which love and time travelling can be seen. The current novel does not show intentional time travelling it’s rather an accidental one that causes the woman to lose her lover forever.
