Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon's immensely popular Outlander saga soars to new heights with this seventh novel, which takes listeners on a breathtaking journey to 1777 America.

Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army.

And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

Epic in scope and featuring a colorful cast that includes many legendary figures - including hero-turned-traitor Benedict Arnold and bawdy statesman Benjamin Franklin - An Echo in the Bone is a thrill from start to finish.

Featured Article: The Best Female Narrators You Can Listen To All Day


When considering a new audiobook, one of the biggest questions listeners have is whether they’ll enjoy the narration style. This is understandable as audiobooks span at least a few hours, and sticking with one person’s voice for that period can feel like a big commitment. Luckily, there are so many excellent voice actors performing audiobooks that you might just find yourself gravitating to certain audiobooks based solely on the narrator’s strength.

Love this series. I have read all the books.

Good book as you would expect but is kinda like an anime with a cliff hanger not concluding anything with Brianna's son.

Captivating and beautifully written as usual.

Another masterpiece by Diana Gabaldon. I'll be starting the next book in the series right now as I need to know what happens next.
I love listening to Davina Porter she's truly a captivating reader.

Overall a good story

I enjoyed this, as I have most of the books by this author. I did have some trouble accepting the characters' reactions in some situations. I look forward to listening to the next in this series.

Cliffhangers

A lot more cliffhangers in this one. I was waiting for the next chapter to see what happened and the guy is telling me" this is the end of...."
I'm like "Nooooooo".

Galbadon does it again !

I loved it as I have all 6 before this one. The narrator does a beautiful job reading and make the story come alive. Gabaldon gives her characters with such empathy , passion and yet they are simple folk that want what we all want health, livelihoodand family .
