I just read all (I think) of Mute. I am up to Jamie and Claire getting to Lallybroch. Claire has gone upstairs to rest while Jamie and Jenny butt heads downstairs. Are there chapters after this? Will there be chapters after this?

Not quite yet, anon. In the meantime, catch up:

Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight and (ii), Part Nine, Part Ten, Part Eleven

Happy reading!

@eclecticstarlightconnoisseur asked: Do you find it strange that DG but Claire’s birth during the 1918 flu pandemic? That pandemic lasted Feb 1918-April 1920. There were 50,000,000 deaths worldwide. It’s amazing that an infant survived. I mean she goes through such lengths to be as historically accurate as she can, but this is to me is like a giant oversight. What do you think? I’m sure she did that because she wanted Claire to be a certain age when she passed through the stones. But I still find it strange.

This is one of the best points that has ever been raised to my blog.

I’ve never, ever considered this.

Claire was born into a world in turmoil. People dying all around. Henry and Julia Beauchamp must have been terrified. They likely went to great lengths to keep themselves and wee Claire healthy and safe - in a world where World War I was just about to end (November 11, 1918 - 3 weeks after Claire’s birth) and so much was uncertain.

Claire clearly doesn’t remember any of this - and unfortunately her parents didn’t live long enough for her to ask them about it. Lamb wasn’t close enough to her parents to know firsthand what their experiences would have been.

I do think it’s incredibly significant that Claire was born at a time of great uncertainty. A theme that continued through just about every period of her life. She’s been a survivor from the very beginning.

Thank you so much, dearest @eclecticstarlightconnoisseur, for pointing this out and giving me so much to think about!! xo

Visiting Dress  "hana omou" by Yumiko Sebata

Shion is a flower that has been popular in Japan for a long time, but in recent years, the number of wild Shion flowers has been decreasing. I created this kimono with the image of the Shion flower in bloom in mind.
