The following quote is from Written in My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch 16 "ROOM FOR SECRETS", Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon All Rights Reserved.

   " "Aye. I mean . . . well, so far as one can, I think they maybe should. Not
every thought, I dinna mean, but important things. Ahh . . . history, like ye
said. Here, come sit for a wee while." There was a big fallen log, half rotted
and covered with moss and fuzzy gray lichens, and he led her to it, sitting
down beside her in the fragrant shade of a big red cedar.
   She didn't say anything, but lifted a brow in question.
   "Well." He drew a deep breath, feeling that there wasn't enough air in the
whole forest for this. "Did ye ken . . . I've been marrit before?"
   Her face flickered, surprise overcome by determination so fast that he'd
have missed it if he hadn't been watching so close.
   "I did not," she said, and began to pleat the folds of her skirt, one-handed,
clear hazel eyes fixed intently on his face. "Thee did say been married. Thee
isn't now, I suppose?" "

[> These two are PERFECT for each other. I love Rachel's straightforward, honest approach to life. And that she doesn't play "girly" games. Teasing Ian with sucking a pickle? Sure! Toying with real emotions - absolutely not. -- Kathy in PA, Sun, March 19 2017, 6:17:39

[> I always enjoy the conversations but what I also enjoy is the descriptions of the surroundings. To me, most male authors don't do that quite as well as females, and none as well as Diana.. But then, some readers get so annoyed at what they feel are too much information. Hahahaha. -- Marcie, Wed, March 22 2017, 19:50:55
