I Am Who I Am Voyager Read-Along Week 4

Through the cautious respect of weekly meals, a friendship is made between John Grey and Jamie Fraser. Through the patience of a long game the Governor got the information he sought.  Like the Torremolinos Gambit, John Grey’s final move to get Jamie to confess why he escaped, worked. He finally won that battle, but, Jamie had his own game in play, in that he remembered. Through reclaiming himself through a sacrificial act, Jamie Fraser found freedom within.

John is who he is. Jamie is who he is. One is born to it. The other had to grow into it.

With Jamie found in history, Claire, Roger, and Briana just might be able to figure out where he went after.

Outlander Science Club is by Karen Daugherty, MD on the topic of La Grippe.

He Is Found A Captive Voyager Read-Along Week 3

This week 3 installment of the Voyager podcast read-along, “He Is Found Captive”, finds Jamie Fraser at Ardsmuir prison, because he indeed was The Dunbonnet. The painstaking research by Claire, Roger Mac, and Brianna has paid off. Claire, alone, past midnight in the study goes through one more prison role, and there he is. She is in such disbelief she closes her eyes and opens them again to make sure the entry is real. It’s a moment to be cherished as she summons his image and what could have happened on the day he entered the prison. We also are reintroduced to John Grey taking over as Governor of this remote prison nearly two years after Jamie’s arrival there.

Chapters 7-9 are foundational to setting the tone, richness of character development, and for moving the story forward for what is to come later.

The Outlander Science Club segment is brought to you by Karen Daugherty. She discusses the importance of Vitamin C in the 18th century diet as primary prevention of scurvy. It’s a fascinating listen.

From One Prison To Another – Voyager Read Along Week 2

In this week 2 installment of the Voyager read-along (chapters 4-6), Jamie Fraser makes the decision to go from one prison to another.  The highlands have been ravaged post Culloden just as Claire had said. British Redcoats patrol the area burning cottages, seizing property, taking the men who are believed to be Jacobite sympathizers, and generally harassing the starving Highlanders. Lallybroch, the tenants, and his own family continue to be at risk, as we find Ian Murray away to Inverness from being arrested for the fourth time as a suspect and Jamie living in a cave as The Dunbonnet.

These chapters (and one extreme error on his part) lead us and Jamie toward the inevitable choice he must make. He’s a man weary, but not beaten. For all he believes in, he does the best and right thing for all involved. This is why he is the King of Men.
