William shows a fickle side to love in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 70
We get to see more of William in this very short chapter in Outlander Book 8. Not much is happening, but it’s interesting to see more of who he is as a person.
In this chapter, William is whistling a tune and getting ready to escape. Well, not really escape. He’s just trying to avoid the initial orders that he was given. Of course, that’s not going to be a good idea in the long term, but he’s not thinking of that.
While he tries to get out of camp, he sees a woman in line for bread. He immediately thinks about her and wants to call out for her, only to stop himself. He can do something with her later.
There isn’t anything in the way of foreshadowing that I see in this chapter. It’s more about setting out who William is as a person. We get to see that he is just a young man at times. I’ll get to that in the foreshadowing section.
I doubt we’ll see this chapter used in the TV series, and I’ll get to that in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into Written in My Own Heart’s Blood Chapter 70.
