Brianna finally finds Jamie Fraser in Outlander Book 4, Chapter 41

After a long journey, Brianna finally comes face to face in Outlander Book 4, Chapter 41. However, it’s not before a run-in with Stephen Bonnet.

This is one of those chapters that doesn’t give the full story right away. Brianna comes across Bonnet and sees her mother’s ring, but we don’t get the full story of what happened to her until much later in the book.

I’m still in two minds as to whether this worked as it was jarring the first time reading it. Not eventually what happened to her, but Brianna coming across a man we know not to be a good egg. It was always clear that something had to have happened, but Brianna never even hinted to that in her thoughts.

However, the events with Bonnet are completely overshadowed by Bree finally finding Jamie. We get the meeting we’d been waiting so long for.

Of course, this meeting (and then the reunion with Claire) had to be used in the show. Some elements were changed, but I didn’t feel all that bad about the changes. The focus was on the most important elements of the chapter, and that’s what is important.

It is a chapter on the longer side at about an hour long. The chapters get shorter from this point onward for the most part. However, it is an important chapter for the rest of the book.

Let’s dive straight into Drums of Autumn Chapter 41.
