A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon

A Breath of Snow and Ashes, the sixth book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series, finds 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire, living on a homestead in North Carolina in 1772. Besides struggling with the dangers of life on the edge of civilization, revolution is brewing. They know the outcome of the coming war, and loyalty to the crown could prove deadly in the long run. There's also a clipping from a 1776 newspaper mentioning the death of the family in a fire. Will they live to see the birth of a nation? A Breath of Snow and Ashes has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "This installment in the series is not about witches, pirates, magic or deadly battles. Larger-than-life elements are all here, but these are homier tales, full of Gabaldon's distinctive humor, astounding historical detail, and - of course - just a little bit of deviant sexuality."
