This seventh novel in author Diana Gabaldon’s immensely popular Outlander saga takes listeners on a thrilling 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 fighting for the eventual winner is no guarantee of safety. And worse still, the possibility of pointing a weapon at his own son—a young officer in the British army—haunts Jamie’s every thought.

Best One Yet!
How is this not her best work?!!! She can't just write about the same people over and over! I loved everything about this book and the fact that she switched back and forth between characters made it interesting. If you love Diana Gabaldon then you should expect many twist and turns. I loved it!!
True to form! Loved it!
I was never disappointed anywhere along the way with Echo! I fell right back into the lives of Claire and Jaime. The fact that Gabaldon continues to "thicken up" the other characters also helps me to care as equally for them as for the two initial characters. I find her storytelling very mind captivating. I am a painter, and as I do the same type of work over and over, I love that my mind is taken away to Gabaldon's world where past meets present. I came into this series only 10 months ago, and have now listened to all that is available. I have to say that I was quite dismayed when I read how long it takes Gabaldon to do another book, although, I understand. I have just gotten used to going right into the next book in the series and will now have to learn the patience of her other loyal fans. I have to take a moment here to also say that I LOVE the narration. They could not have selected a better voice than that of Davina Porter. She brings each character alive with their own voice and personality. I could listen to her unendingly. I hate to take my earbuds out at the end of the work day.
For the very first time ever in this series I found myself wishing I bought the abridged version of this book. By this point we all know that Galbaldon can be very long winded about things that have nothing to do with the plot or story, but for some reason it was A LOT more noticeable in this book. I am a HUGE fan of the Outlander series and if you've made it this far, then I'm sure you will enjoy being with your favorite characters again. The only problem was that she has added on so many characters and now feels the need to do each character justice and lets not forget the history that she would hate to leave out that it felt like A LOT of time just waiting for Clair and Jamie.
