We learn how the MacKenzies came through the stones in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 10
We know how the MacKenzies got to the past. They went through the stones. Now we find out when and where they traveled from in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 10.
The last we saw of the MacKenzies was in 1739. Bree had made it to Lallybroch with Jem and Mandy to meet back up with Roger. Then they were suddenly at the Ridge in 1779. That was quite a journey!
We get to hear what the trip through the stones was like, and it wasn’t an easy journey. No trip through the stones is, but this one seemed much harder than all the others. It was Mandy who kept them all together.
There are also elements of regret. Not regret enough to want them to go back to the 20th century, but just regret that they had to leave so much behind for the children.
Does this foreshadow anything? I think it does, and I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section. It also just brings closure to the previous book.
What about being used in the TV series? I would love to hear the story. I don’t think the chapter will play out exactly this way, but I think some of it will be used. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 10.
