Just the Outlander chapter
We start with Claire and the Murrays getting back to the house. Claire sends the women to the kitchen for food and brings Young Ian upstairs to Jamie. Jamie thinks that it is Frances and tells her not to come in as he’s using the chamber pot. Ian ignores that.
When Ian walks in, Jamie is on the side of the bed looking pale. As he rises, he faints. He only wakes up to Claire stitching up his chest and the women surrounding him. He is pleased to see Rachel and Jenny back, and Claire uses the women being there to disinfect the wound so Jamie can’t swear.
Ian has a letter for Jamie. It’s from Mr. Partland, who is not coming to the Ridge if that’s what Jamie wanted. It turns out that he ahs been taken into custody, which is a relief to the Frasers. The Ridge is safer than it was a couple of chapters ago.
Now it’s time to handle the Silvia situation, and she points out that Jamie isn’t much better than the last time she saw him. I guess it reminds us how often Jamie is put in harm’s way. She is grateful for Jamie sending Ian to her, and now it’s time for Jamie to offer her a place to stay. She points out that she would be a scandal to him, so she can’t accept.
Is she going to share her story to everyone in Meeting? Silvia is shocked to find out there are Friends on the Ridge. Well, there is Rachel, who isn’t likely to be shocked. There’s no need for anyone else to know her story. Silvia and her daughters have a home at the Ridge.
