Just the Outlander chapter

The chapter starts with Bree enjoying learning how to use the printing press. Marsali points out that the novelty wears off, but it is better than doing laundry.

The discussion moves on to Roger and Fergus. Bree knows that Roger needs to get changed, so she wonders where he is. She notes that Roger being a minister is better than being a thief—although it’s Marsali who finishes the sentence. Marsali makes it clear that she may have been just 15, but she knew what she was getting into with Fergus when she married him.

Marsali does note that she thinks things were a lot simpler when Fergus and Jamie were smuggling in Edinburgh rather than printing. Has she forgotten that they were printing then as well?

Bree’s thoughts move to Roger becoming a minister. One thing she worries about is how him marrying a Catholic could hinder his chances. It’s clear that the Presbyterians aren’t happy about him doing that, and Bree is not converting. Bree also notes that Roger was never fully ordained the last time as he left to save Bree from Bonnet, so that could work against him.

However, Brianna realizes that it’s something else that’s causing a problem in her own mind. She’s not sure she can properly support Roger as the wife of a minister.
