The MacKenzies enjoy a meal with the Brumbys in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 89
The MacKenzies make it to Savannah in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 89. It’s time to continue the storyline of the Revolutionary War.
We get to a very short chapter in Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone. The MacKenzies are staying with Mr. Brumby, who commissioned Bree to make the portrait of his wife. Of course, there are other reasons for this to happen, and it’s clear that is the case on both sides.
This chapter certainly brings a sense of the calm before the storm. It’s something that is on the mind of the MacKenzies.
This chapter doesn’t foreshadow all that much for me. It’s more about setting the tone for what’s to come. We’re reminded of how close the Siege of Savannah is, and it adds a level of tension to what could have been a lighthearted chapter.
As for whether it will be used in the TV series or not, this does depend on whether Lord John Grey will arrange for Bree to be the one commissioned to do the portrait. 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 89.
