quote- knowing June 11, 2014

In chapter 15 of Diana Gabaldon’s Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, Jenny says of Jamie,

.

“Ye ken how he is…always explaining you to yourself.”

.

This line made me chuckle.  My husband is just like this, though he also very frequently explains himself. 😉  Kind of scary how observant he is.

    I love the outlander series!!! I just got the Audible version of book 8. Seriously, at least a fourth of all the references I ever make are from Outlander, and if it comes to relationship advice, I start referring to moments in the series almost exclusively. 🙂 And yes, I noticed that Jamie as a character often has more insights about other characters in the book than they have about themselves. And if there was ever a model of an adult relationship, he and Clair have one.

    • Indeed. My husband and I have long conversations about Outlander, and Diana herself comes up frequently! lol I love that she is so wonderfully accessible, and that she has been so encouraging to me personally as a writer. I cherish her description that I am “colorful and songful” after she spent the weekend here last month. 🙂
