A Breath of Snow and Ashes

It is 1772, the eve of the American Revolution, and the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit.  Governor Josiah Martin calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown.  But there is one problem:  Jamie Fraser’s wife, Claire, is a time-traveler, as well as his daughter and son-in-law.  And Jamie knows that three years hence, the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the end of it all will be independence – with those loyal to the king either dead or in exile.  Beyond everything else, though, looms the threat of a tiny clipping from the Wilmington Gazette dated 1776, which reports the destruction of the house on Fraser’s Ridge and the death by fire of James Fraser and all his family.

For once, Jamie Fraser hopes the time-travelers in his family are wrong about the future – but only time will tell
