The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 6 "Being Now Justified by His Blood". Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   " "Holy Mother", she whispered. "So ye mean to have someone betray
ye?"
   "Seemingly, aye." He had decided upon the plan, alone in the cave, but it
had not seemed quite real until now. "I thought perhaps Joe Fraser would
be best for it."
   Jenny rubbed her fist hard against her lips. She was quick; he knew she had
grasped the plan at once--and all its implications.
   "But Jamie," she whispered. "Even if they dinna hang ye outright--and
that's the hell of a risk to take--Jamie, ye could be killed when they take ye!"
   His shoulders slumped suddenly, under the weight of misery and exhaust-
tion.
   "God, Jenny," he said, "d'ye think I care?"
   'There was a long silence before she answered.
   "No, I don't," she said. "And I canna say as I blame ye, either." She
paused a moment, to steady her voice. "But I still care." Her fingers gently
touched the back of his head, stroking his hair. "So ye'll mind yourself,
won't ye, clot-heid?" "

Sacrifice, it seems as if Jamie was always sacrificing for others. I guess that is what a Laird is called to do for his people.

[> It's so hard to read about our hero, Jamie, being human and having these sad defeated feelings. But human he is. It tears at the heartstrings all the same. TY for the quote. -- Marcie, Tue, February 21 2017, 20:13:52
