By Diana Gabaldon

Chapter 27

The Last Reason

  • Over the next few days, Claire gets to better know Jenny and Jamie's family history.
  • They also put her to work, helping to prepare the place for the winter.
  • But it's not all work and no play. Jamie and Claire find time for a literal roll in the hay after Jamie tells her the last reason he married her: "I wanted you. […] More than I ever wanted anything in my life" (27.67).
