Jamie gets Greene’s advice on Quaker marriages in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 60
Sometimes, you have to wonder when Jamie has time for his own thoughts and needs. That’s especially the case in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 60.
He’s now a general in Washington’s Army, but instead of worrying about his men, he’s thinking about his nephew. He spends this chapter finding out more about Quaker marriages.
One thing that I always love about Jamie is that he is respectful of other religions. He may not always agree with them, but he is respectful enough. He understands that faith is more of a personal thing, and everyone has the right to believe what they want. He’s even curious about some of those faiths, but only really when the need arises.
I would like to see this chapter used in the TV series, but I’m not too sure if it will. It would be good to see Jamie have someone else in the militia to talk to, but I’m just not sure there’s enough time. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.
As for foreshadowing, I again see some for Rollo. I’ll get to that in the foreshadowing part of this post.
Let’s dive into Written in My Own Heart’s Blood Chapter 60.
