The Scottish Prisoner Podcast Series
“It’s All About the Honor,” in this 20th installment of The Scottish Prisoner podcast series. Jamie honor’s the boy with a request. Jamie acts with honor in saving the maiden. John treats Jamie with honor with his continued friendship. John honors the young woman with his assistance. Lady Dunsany honors her daughter by not falling for what’s being sold to her. Lord Dunsany honors his family by discreetly altering his will with another lawyer. Betty Mitchell honors the young lady Isobel by sending Jamie to fetch her and keep her from harm. John honors the culture by finding a suitable means to speak to Jamie. Jamie honors his own heart by loving the boy.
It’s a theme indeed.
Within all this honoring, poor William is teething hard and gets lost in a fast encroaching fog. A new groom is broken in, along with a young colt. Jamie thinks Betty might want to marry him and responds to his own classist bias. He and John continue their verbal chess game, and perhaps their friendship. Lady Isobel is restored to her home unharmed.
As within each chapter, nature plays a large role in creating the emotional and palpable landscape to draw from. The sky can be seen, the grass felt, the oppression of the fog coming?Diana Gabaldon has a way of description that leaps from the page.
What’s Coming up? The Scottish Prisoner week 21 covers chapters 42-43.
