Diana Gabaldon mesmerized readers with her first novel, Outlander, and its best-selling sequel, Dragonfly in Amber. These works of striking originality introduced a reluctant time traveler named Claire Randall, whose wry twentieth-century sensibility meets its match in eighteenth-century Scotland with a gallant young clansman named Jamie Eraser.
In Voyager, the third volume in this sweeping epic, Claire faces a possibility both fearsome and exhilarating. Having returned to her own time, pregnant and brutalized by her trip through the standing stones, she makes a new life for herself, training to become a doctor and raising her daughter, Brianna. But the passage of two decades does little to dim the memory of Jamie or the life they once shared; and the constant presence of Brianna, with her father's brilliant red hair and well-loved features, is a painful reminder of the past.
Now Brianna is grown, and Claire learns that Jamie may have survived the bloody Battle of Culloden. Dare she risk another trip through the stones, a trip that easily could prove fatal? Will she even be able to find Jamie? And how can she leave behind her beloved daughter, knowing all too well they may never see each other again?
The risks are great, the losses unthinkable. Surely the passage of time has changed Jamie too. What might be left of the love they once shared? But courage, and hope, make all things possible. Claire takes a leap of faith through the standing stones, bridging a chasm of some twenty years. For a second time, she seeks her destiny with a man she cannot forget. Both of them, uprooted from past and present lives, move as one from the battlefields of Jacobite Scotland to the exotic West Indies, in league with Highland smugglers and Caribbean pirates and face-to-face with political intrigue and the dark mysteries of voodoo magic. Together, in their bold voyage to an unknown destination, they are braving the treacherous tides of the human heart.

Her previous publishing history includes schol-arly articles and comic book stories for Walt Disney, as well as the award-winning novels Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber. She lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, with her husband, three children, and a large number of animals.
