We’re back in 1756, this time at Helwater in Outlander Book 3, Chapter 14
We head back to Jamie in 1756 during Outlander Book 3, Chapter 14. Ardsmuir has closed and now Jamie is heading to Helwater, while all the others head to the Colonies.
This is certainly one of the most debated chapters of the entire Outlander series, let alone of Voyager. It’s the one that involves Geneva, the blackmail, the night in her room, etc.
I’m not getting into that debate. I have my opinions and, for this, I’m keeping them to myself. What I will say is that I try hard not to put 21st-century views on the plotline, which is something many of us are guilty of doing now and then.
We’ll stick to just the story, and the role it plays in the overall book series. Of course, there is no way that it could be left out of Outlander Season 3, but there was a change to part of the story—one I was grateful for just to avoid a lot of the arguing that goes on around this storyline.
In terms of length, it’s one of the more average lengths for a chapter in Voyager, coming in at around an hour long. It’s also the first and longest part of Part Four in the story. We’ll be here for a few chapters, following Jamie’s life in the 1750 and into the early 1760s.
Are you ready for the Voyager Chapter 14 breakdown? Let’s get stuck in.
