From the author of the breathtaking bestsellers Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber, the extraordinary saga continues. Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her... and her body still cries out for him in her dreams. Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and pain awaiting her...the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland... and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite—or forever doom—her timeless love.

A fantastic voyage across 276 billion trillion miles of space and 13.5 billion years of time, told through more than 300 of the most dramatic astronomical images ever captured The 101 greatest sights between earth and the edge of the cosmos are depicted in this collection of more than 300 of the most beautiful space photographs ever taken. The dramatic large format makes the perfect showcase for the latest images from Hubble's new camera, and the majority of the photographs will be displayed at full or double page size. Readers should prepare to embark on a journey that will take them to the edge of the Universe and the beginning of time, crossing 46.5 billion light years of space and exploring 101 celestial wonders ranging from comets to quasars. They will start on Earth, nestled in the Orion Spur of the Milky Way Galaxy, near the center of the Local Group of galaxies, gravitationally bound to the Virgo Supercluster, but the entire universe is here to explore. There are photos of sand dunes snaking across the northern plains of Mars, driven by the winds of spring; alien cloudscapes of fluorescing gases; and secret nests of new stars hidden within. Hypergiant stars tear themselves to pieces, galaxies collide, and superclusters gather like motes of dust on a cosmic web. The journey that these photos represent is organized into four zones—interplanetary, interstellar, intergalactic, and, finally, intertemporal. Voyager's grand tour of space offers an unrivaled portrait of our cosmic habitat. Quite simply, there is no better way to see the Universe.
