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. 🙂
