Subject: QOTD for Sunday 28 January 2024

Here we go again…sorry, no theme this week either, just something from each page (126, 226, 326, etc.). There is always something rich when I do these silly choices, and I do remember most of this book. I must have re-read it a time or two. 😊 Enjoy!

The following quote is from An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 13, “Unrest,” Copyright 2009 by Diana Gabaldon, all rights reserved.

“—but he wondered suddenly whether he might find a wife in Scotland.
He couldn’t. Could he? Would Bug be able to follow him so far? Maybe he’s already dead, he thought again, and shifted a bit. Rollo grumbled in his throat, but, recognizing the signs, shuffled off him and curled up a little distance away.
His family would be there. Surrounded by the Murrays, surely he – and a wife – would be safe. It was simple to lurk and steal through the dense woods here in the mountains – not nearly so simple in the Highlands, where every eye was sharp and no stranger passed unnoticed.”

I loved Ian's thought process here...it goes on to say that surely Jenny could find someone who would marry Ian, even looking like a Mohawk... And how no way could Bug be inconspicuous in the Highlands.

[> I'm amused by Rollo's reaction. "Stop fashing. I'm going to sleep over here." 😆 What if Jenny did try to get him a wife? Would he stay in Scotland, always thinking of what might have been with Rachel? Now we know what was happening at Lallybroch at the time, but I enjoy being privy to the thoughts. -- kgp, Sun, January 28 2024, 7:38:42

[> [> After all Ian had experienced in the new world, I doubt he could have been at ease in Scotland, even with Highland cattle raids and all. It's as well that he came back to Fraser's Ridge (and Rachel!). -- JudithONH, Sun, January 28 2024, 9:48:44
