Drums of Autumn by Gabaldon

1
Well, it's official!  I'm an Outlander fan.  Book 2 was a downer for me but the last one was awesome and this one starts off slow, but then I could not stop reading.  These books are an investment of your time, but the characters and details are worth it.  This is also the first time I have bought a companion guide to go with a book series.  However this author is amazing at taking a small character in say book 1 and bringing them back in a big way later on.

Summary:
The magnificent saga continues....

It began in Scotland, at an ancient stone circle. There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past—or the grave. Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once but twice. Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became legend—a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Her second journey, two decades later, brought them together again in frontier America. But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century. Their daughter, Brianna....

Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the stone circle and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history...and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past...or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong....
