Subject: QOTD for Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The following quote is from Written in My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch 42 "ALL MY LOVE", Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon All Rights Reserved.

This quote is from Frank's letter to Brianna;

   "Don't--I repeat, don't--go anywhere near the Service or anyone con-
nected with it. At best, they'd think you insane. But if you are indeed
what you may be, the last people who should ever know it are the funny
buggers, as we used to be known during the war.
   And if worse should come to worst--and you can do it--then the past
may be your best avenue of escape. I have no idea how it works; neither
does your mother, or at least she says so. I hope I may have given you a few
tools to help, if that should be necessary.
   And . . . there's him. Your mother said the Fraser sent her back to
me, knowing that I would protect her--and you. She thought that he
died immediately afterward. He did not. I looked for him, and I found
him. And, like him, perhaps I send you back, knowing--as he knew of
me--that he will protect you with his life.
   I will love you forever, Brianna. And I know whose child you truly are.
     With all my love,
     Dad
"

This letter reveals so much of what Frank knew.

[> I was simply shocked at how much Frank actually knew. Wonder if he wrote about Jamie in his books. I have to believe he did. -- Lady Linda, Tue, March 21 2017, 5:21:24

[> It interested me that Claire never looked at Frank's books. I'm sure Jamie is there in them, but she wouldn't look. I think that Bree will have found him in those pages. -- swarl, Tue, March 21 2017, 7:16:46

[> The fact that Frank kept this very important knowledge from Claire does NOT make me feel nicer toward him. -- Lady_Jane, Tue, March 21 2017, 21:40:42

[> [> I agree, but also think it was loving and brave to reveal the truth. -- Kathy in PA, Wed, March 22 2017, 4:15:42

[> Not a big Frank fan myself, although the tv version has softened me up a bit. But I do see how hard it was for him to write Jamie's name on this note. "....there's him". -- Marcie, Wed, March 22 2017, 19:43:33

[> Frank and Claire both have selfish qualities. Frank just gets harped on more for his. -- M&M, Thu, March 23 2017, 15:23:31
