Hi everybody! Thanks for stopping by. Today’s post is ‘Waiting on Wednesday’ which is a weekly blog feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re super excited about.
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood (Outlander #8)by Diana GabaldonExpected publication: December 10th 2013 by Delacorte PressWRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD is the eighth novel in the world-famous OUTLANDER series. In June of 1778, the world turns upside-down. The British army withdraws from Philadelphia, George Washington prepares to move from Valley Forge in pursuit, and Jamie Fraser comes back from the dead to discover that his best friend has married Jamie’s wife. The ninth Earl of Ellesmere discovers to his horror that he is in fact the illegitimate son of the newly-resurrected Jamie Fraser (a rebel _and_ a Scottish criminal!) and Jamie’s nephew Ian Murray discovers that his new-found cousin has an eye for Ian’s Quaker betrothed.Meanwhile, Claire Fraser deals with an asthmatic duke, Benedict Arnold, and the fear that one of her husbands may have murdered the other. And in the 20th century, Jamie and Claire’s daughter Brianna is thinking that things are probably easier in the 18th century: her son has been kidnapped, her husband has disappeared into the past, and she’s facing a vicious criminal with nothing but a stapler in her hand. Fortunately, her daughter has a miniature cricket bat and her mother’s pragmatism.The best of historical fiction with a Moebius twist, WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD weaves the fibers of a family’s life through the tapestry of historical drama.
I’m crazy for this series. Absolutely nuts. This is quite possibly my most anticipated book of the entire year (although NOS4A2 comes in at a close second). So when the cover got released (love it!), the details that this is not in fact the last installment (OMGOSH THANK YOU) and the release date (December?! *sobs uncontrollably*) well, my excitement definitely got stirred up again. So I have to wait almost the entire year for my most anticipated release, whatever. I have no doubt it will be worth it.
Have you read the Outlander series? Love it? Hate it? Are you caught up and looking forward to #8 as well? Let me know!
