In her much-anticipated new novel, the New York Times
bestselling author of the Outlander saga brings back one of
her most compelling characters: Lord John Greyâ€”soldier,
gentleman, and no mean hand with a blade. Here Diana
Gabaldon brilliantly weaves together the strands of Lord
Johnâ€™s secret and public livesâ€”a shattering family mystery,
a love affair with potentially disastrous consequences, and
a war that stretches from the Old World to the New. . .
In 1758, in the heart of the Seven Yearsâ€™ War,
Britain fights by the side of Prussia in the Rhineland. For
Lord John and his titled brother Hal, the battlefield will
be a welcome respite from the torturous mystery that burns
poisonously in their familyâ€™s history. Seventeen years
earlier, Lord Johnâ€™s late father, the Duke of Pardloe, was
found dead, a pistol in his hand and accusations of his role
as a Jacobite agent staining forever a familyâ€™s honor.
Now unlaid ghosts from the past are stirring. Lord
Johnâ€™s brother has mysteriously received a page of their
late fatherâ€™s missing diary. Someone is taunting the Grey
family with secrets from the grave, but Hal, with secrets of
his own, refuses to pursue the matter and orders his brother
to do likewise. Frustrated, John turns to a man who has been
both his prisoner and his confessor: the Scottish Jacobite
Fraser can tell many secretsâ€”and
withhold many others. But war, a forbidden affair, and
Fraserâ€™s own secrets will complicate Lord Johnâ€™s quest.
Until James Fraser yields the missing piece of an astounding
puzzleâ€”and Lord John, caught between his courage and his
conscience, must decide whether his familyâ€™s honor is worth
