Droughtlander is almost over! Well, in book form anyway. It has just been announced that the ninth novel in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone, will be released on November 23, 2021.
In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Gabaldon said, “I’m honestly and truly THRILLED to announce that We. Have. A. PUB DATE! So looking forward to sharing the book with you all!”
Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone will pick up where the last book, Written In My Own Heart’s Blood, left off. SPOILER ALERT…. the entire Fraser family has now been reunited on the Ridge after Brianna, Roger, and their kids returned to the past. Entertainment Weekly also revealed the cover for the new book:
Here is the official description for the ninth Outlander book:
“The past may seem the safest place to be… but it is the most dangerous time to be alive…”
“Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1743, and it took them twenty years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same. It is 1779 and Claire and Jamie are at last reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband Roger, and their children on Fraser’s Ridge. Having the family together is a dream the Frasers had thought impossible.”
In typical Outlander fashion, however, things don’t stay sunshine and daisies forever. The synopsis continues,
“Yet even in the North Carolina backcountry, the effects of war are being felt. Tensions in the Colonies are great and local feelings run hot enough to boil Hell’s tea-kettle. Jamie knows loyalties among his tenants are split and it won’t be long until the war is on his doorstep.”
