Bree and Marsali head out to buy some okra in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 71

We get a short chapter that takes a look at life of the time in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 71. There are certainly moments to be that make us thankful for the time today.

Marsali and Bree decide to see if they can get their hands on some of the okra. Then they realize that there are melons, so they decide to get some fruit. I love seeing the day-to-day life, reminding me why I’m so grateful to have a grocery store across the road from me.

This chapter does turn scary, though. As Bree asks about the Loyalists, she sees some men throwing tomatoes at a pub that has been renamed The General Washington. It’s clear they are Loyalists, and they are willing to do more than throw tomatoes.

This chapter doesn’t really foreshadow anything. It think it’s much more about focusing on the time period. We need to see what the daily life for Marsali and Fergus is like in Charles Town. It’s not all roses, but they both knew that this would be the case.

I doubt we’ll see this chapter play out in the series, though. What I think we’ll see instead is other ways of showing the riots in the bigger towns.

Let’s dive into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 71.
