The next stunning volume in the mega-selling Outlander series

DIANA GABALDON Written in My Own Heart’s Blood The eighth book in the epic, multi-million selling Outlander series. Written in My Own Heart’s Blood opens in June 1778, as 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 his wife. The ninth Earl of Ellesmere discovers, to his horror, that he is in fact the illegitimate son of the newly-resurrected rebel Jamie Fraser, 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 murder on his mind… Diana Gabaldon is the internationally bestselling author of numerous historical novels. She lives with her family in Scottsdale, Arizona.
