That sounds as if she's writing the story in a big circle and intends to go back to the beginning.
K back to the book :)

BTW, according to Amazon the release date for Echo is September 29, 2009.


It did feel as though a lot of the loose ends were tidied up didn't it, and that there was some very swift unraveling at the very end.

Funny how an author finally realizes its getting time to finish the book and get all those loose ends wrapped up isn't it? I want more though, how did Bree and Roger end up with Lallybroch??

Found this cover on Goodreads,

Also found these two gorgeous covers but my French is sorely lacking so I can't quite tell which books they are.

Seems a bit strange - looks like they're parts 12 and 13!! Do they know something we don't?

I can't comment for sure but I know in some European countries some bigger books are divided in two and sold separately.

I finally got 'Outlander' - my library's copy is 'MIA' so I bought the very small paperback. Just started today after I put down another book after 50 pgs that I just couldn't get into (and that's after another book that was so-so but I forced myself to finish b/c it was short :S)
