The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 34 "Daddy". Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   " "Stop it!" she said. Her eyes were slanted with a horrified anger. "How
could ye, Jamie? Rutting like a wild beast, and not carin' if all the house hears
ye!"
   He moved off me, slowly, clumsy as a bear. Jenny snatched a quilt from
the bed and flung it over my body.
   On all fours, he shook his head like a dog, sending droplets of water flying.
Then, very slowly, he got to his feet, and pulled his ripped breeches back into
place.
   "Are ye no ashamed?" she cried, scandalized.
   Jamie stood looking down at her as though he had never seen any creature
quite like her, and was making up his mind what she might be. The wet ends
of his hair dripped over his bare chest.
   "Yes," he said at last, quite mildly. "I am."
   He seemed dazed. He closed his eyes and a brief, deep shudder went over
him. Without a word, he turned and went out. "

[> Jenny takes a lot of grief for her behaviour sometimes, but she was caught in the middle of a bunch of situations she didn't understand, and that weren't good. -- jayn, 03:52:57 09/17/15 Thu

[> I didn't like Jenny one bit until the last book when I quite warmed to her. Before that I felt she was an interfering shrew of a woman -- Gwen, 08:15:03 09/17/15 Thu

[> Although I have never warmed up to Jenny, I do admire her spunk. -- Lady Linda, 13:55:18 09/17/15 Thu

[> I know it's time for a reread when I say why the hell is Jenny there! She is a character I admire for her grit but didn't love because of her actions -- BetsyG, 17:01:17 09/17/15 Thu

[> Currently up to Voyager in my re-read (it's been many years for the early books). I'm just at the point where the elder Ian walks in on J & C at the brothel. Claire has obviously caught everyone at a disadvantage. :/ -- DonnaS, 18:44:57 09/17/15 Thu

[> I just finished listening to Voyager, and this was one of the places I truly disliked Jenny. At other points, I can understand her reasoning, even if I don't agree. But bringing Leghair there and then not allowing Jamie and Claire to actually settle their fight their own way just really irritated me. I'm now on to DOA and Mr. Bonnet just entered the scene. -- Lady-Jane, 17:27:25 09/18/15 Fri
