Roger explains to Jem why he’s getting ordained in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 70
Roger gets ready to meet with the Presbyterians to be ordained in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 70. This is a great time for Jem to ask some questions.
I love how inquisitive Jemmy is. Some of this is clearly for our perspective. We need to understand why this is so important for Roger to do, and it’s better to have a conversation with another conversation than for it all to be internal. I love how it’s with his son, though.
Jemmy knows a lot. He takes in a lot. He also has a lot of questions, and he needs to be able to ask them. Roger and Brianna have created an environment for him to do that. It’s understandable that he’s worried that something is going to change when his dad becomes an ordained minister.
The chapter doesn’t seem to foreshadow all that much, though. We’re getting to some parts of the story that are all about wrapping up things that had been set books earlier and it’s time for them to wrap up to be able to move forward in the story.
Will it be used in the adaptation? This I’m not too sure about and 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 70.
