F is for Jamie Fraser

This is the sixth day of the 2017 A to Z Blog Challenge, so I am featuring the letter “F” in today’s post. Every month I blog about a favorite line from a novel. Today I shine a light on a FAVORITE line from the novel THE FIERY CROSS, by Diana Gabaldon.


It is the last line in the book, and it is spoken by the heart throb of Ms. Gabaldon’s Outlander Series, JAMIE FRASER.

“’When the day shall come, that we do part,’ he said softly, and turned to look at me, ‘if my last words are not ‘I love you’ – ye’ll ken it was because I didna have time.’”


I wish I’d written that!

Until my next blog post tomorrow

I hope you have a good book to read. If you’re a writer, I hope you have productive writing time.

  1. Hi Janet,
    Personally, this particular has book has a special meaning to me. It is also the one Gabaldon personally inscribed for me. No, I never met her. I ordered the book from Poisonous Pen book store. She will sign them for you there. I ordered mine on-line. I will treasure it forever.😊

  2. Hi Katrina,
    That really is a treasure! I thought I was going to get to hear Gabaldon speak at the annual Bookmarks book festival in Winston-Salem, NC several years ago, but I didn’t get to go. In fact, I’ve never been able to get there the weekend it’s usually held. Maybe I’ll get there this year!
