The following quote is taken from Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 16. Copyright (c) 1997 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

“D’ye believe in signs at all, Sassenach?”

“What sorts of signs?” I asked guardedly.

In answer, he bent, plucked a sprig from the ground, and dropped in into my hand- the dark green leaves like small round Chinese fans, a pure white flower on a slender stem, and on another a half-ripe berry, its shoulders pale with shade, blushing crimson at the tip.

“This, It’s ours, d’ye see?” he said.


The Frasers’, I mean,” he explained. One large, blunt finger gently prodded the berry. “Strawberries ha’ always been the emblem of the clan- it’s what the name meant to start with, when Monsieur Frescliere came across from France wi’ King William that was- and took hold of land in the Scottish mountains for his trouble.”
