Roger and Buck get to Hadrian’s Wall in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 98

As Roger and Buck get to Hadrian’s Wall, they run into some language barriers in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 98. They also run into a large dog.

The two finally find a man who may be able to help them locate Jerry. However, this man is immediately scared and calls for help in the form of a dog. I love how this man and his dog are bonded in a similar way to Ian and Rollo.

While the chapter doesn’t answer any questions, it does bring up more of an idea that Jerry made it to the 1730s. Roger also realizes that he may still not find his father alive. It’s clear that there is more to the story.

This chapter foreshadows things for Roger as he learns the truth. It connects to A Leaf on the Wind, which was a novella that gave us Jerry’s story, and I feel like it helps to fill in some of the gaps. Or is it that the novellas fill in the gaps?

Will the chapter be used in the TV series? I certainly hope so. Doesn’t Roger deserve to know what actually happened to his father?

Let’s dive into Written in My Own Heart’s Blood Chapter 98.
