The following quote is taken from Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 17 "Possession." Copyright (c) 1992 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

"He leaned forward slightly to assist my ministrations, exposing the hideous scars on his back. The thick red welts of Jack Randallís Christmas gift lay heavily over the thin white lines of the earlier floggings.

I touched the scars gently, my heart squeezed by the sight. I had seen those wounds when they were fresh, seen him driven to the edge of madness by torture and abuse. But I had healed him, and he had fought with all the power of a gallant heart to be whole once more, to come back to me. Moved by tenderness, I brushed the trailing ends of his hair aside, and bent to kiss the back of his neck."

[> Though he has to carry these scars, they will always be about Claire fighting for her man and him coming back to her. -- LisaW, 08:28:08 12/21/15 Mon

[> I'm wondering about book 9 - in MOBY, Roger prayed with BJR. Did that have an effect? Will Jamie have the same scars and will he and Claire realize it or only Bri and Roger because they were out of that timeline? -- kgp, 11:52:22 12/21/15 Mon

[> [> [> I don't have it with me, but Roger and Buck went to Ft William to see if they could track down the soldier who had Jeremiah's dog tags. BJR was trying whisky and Roger told him to add a bit of water to open the flavor. Before he left he took BJR's hands and prayed with him. -- kgp, 06:27:32 12/22/15 Tue
