Outlander Chapter 41

By Diana Gabaldon

Chapter 41

From the Womb of the Earth

  • Special delivery: MacRannoch has sent Claire and Jamie a pearl bracelet and a wolf pelt. Aren't wolf pelts supposed to be saved for ten-year anniversaries?
  • They then put on robes and travel deep under the Abbey to the warm mineral springs together.
  • Once underground, they disrobe and hop into the warm waters; they end up heating the waters up a bit more, if you catch our drift.
  • When they get out to cool, Claire reveals to Jamie that she is pregnant.
  • They sit back and relax. Claire thinks, "And the world was all around us, new with possibility" (41.142). 
  • The end.
