The various alliances that the Grahams' reluctantly make over the years ends up being more than valuable acquaintances. From Iroquois Indians who vow to protect their homestead, to Pirates who call themselves privateers and come to their rescue more than once; to the wealthy widow (Kate Jones) who come to the aid of the Grahams; and the Catholic Priest, Carlos whom they save and in turn saves their lives later in the story. Epic story telling of the rise and fall of the Graham families...of their many struggles as they go and grow and change. Through births, marriages, deaths, hardships, destruction, victories and heartaches. But with all the characters introduced in this sage, it is first and foremost always about the time traveler, Alex Lind/Graham and her strengths.
Once again there are some similarities in this saga that are a definite reminder of the original Outlander...but hey...so what? I mean, I'm probably Diana Gabaldon's biggest fan and I love Outlander so much that any author who wants to give me their rushed, cut-rate version in book form of that outstandingly epic series, is welcome to my money. It's sort of like Ms. Belfrage used OUTLANDER as a guide for her storytelling...taking a few scenes from that saga and then changes it up a bit. Even so, I'm addicted to Ms. Belfrage's version of her story... enough that I must continue with the final book. How incredible are the emotions summoned by the force of these books. The feelings that they stir sometimes blind-sides me. Ms. Belfrage successfully spins such a compelling, emotional story of homesteaders, family, tribes, nations, customs, spirit, traditions and children. All the struggles of a new world. If you are looking for a saga of epic proportions; of historical facts intertwined with romance and fictitious characters (and a few historical correct characters as well..)..then begin at the beginning... (although Ms. Belfrage adeptly brings us up-to-date with each installment....this seventh installment could probably stand alone)
Downside/Spoilers: Young Samuel miraculously returns and re-acclimates himself into the life of a homestead and farmers' son. His adaption and conformity from his commitment and love of Indian life to farmer's son is rushed, it's not believable. And Quaachow's speech is so Americanized and modern, it's ludicrous. Indians of this era simply did not speak like this...they certainly never used contractions.
For readers looking for a book that combines history and action, love and time travel, this series is a great read. If you’ve enjoyed Outlander, I think you’ll love The Graham Saga!
Wondering also what became of Lucy who time slipped away in the last book. I can only imagine how hard a go of it she would have if she went into our present age - I'd be curious enough to want to read what became of her - if there is no mention of her fate in the book ahead.
