Roger finds he’s unable to keep his promise to Bree in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 90
It was only in the previous chapter that Roger said that he would be inside when the fighting in Savannah started. Well, he isn’t able to keep that promise in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 90.
Roger is out running an errand for Jamie during the chapter. This is where we find out how people view Jamie since the Battle of Monmouth. Jamie had resigned to look after Claire after she had been shot. It was one of the benefits of being a General rather than a Colonel. However, it’s clear that people aren’t happy with his actions.
That being said, Jamie still wants to fight. Roger is the one who can get some advice, walking out of British-owned territory and into the American camp due to being a man of the cloth. It just ends up with him trapped with the Americans as it’s clear that the siege is coming.
This chapter sets the tone for the next few chapters to come. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section.
I do wonder if the Siege of Savannah will be shown in the TV series. I think it should be, but there’s a debate over whether there is time. 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 90.
