The Frasers deal with the loss of a child in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 121
The community comes together to help with the grieving process in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 121. It’s not going to be easy moving forward, though.
This chapter really makes me want a spin-off novella series for Fergus and Marsali. It’s clear from this chapter that they had big lives in the Philadelphia community. We’ve only ever seen a snapshot of it all, but this chapter makes it clear that Marsali has at least one admirer in the area.
The chapter also helps to offer us as readers a chance to mourn Henri-Christian’s death. It’s a hard loss for all, but we don’t normally get the initial moments of grief in the books unless it’s important for the overall story. This is just a moment for everyone to come together.
There is some plot development in the story. I don’t see much in the way of foreshadowing, except for when it comes to Germain’s storyline.
Will it be used in the TV series? Is suspect it will, and I’ll get to that in the adaptation part of the post.
Let’s dive into Written in My Own Heart’s Blood Chapter 121.
