Women come to Jamie to ask him to reconsider in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 121
It was never an easy decision for Jamie to kick out tenants from the Ridge. In Outlander Book 9, Chapter 121, we see him change his mind.
Jamie doesn’t often change his mind. There is usually a good reason for it, and that’s certainly something that comes up in this chapter.
Previously, Jamie made it clear that the men who stood against him the night that Cunningham was seriously injured would be evicted from the Ridge. Their families would need to go with them. However, the women and children decide to see if Jamie would be willing to change his mind.
At the same time, Mrs. Cunningham has a request. It turns out that she is taking her son and some of the lieutenants back to England. This could solve a lot of problems on the Ridge.
This chapter certainly helps to push the plot forward for the Frasers. I think it foreshadows just a little bit of trouble that they may experience. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section.
Whether it will be used in the series or not is unclear. I’ll get to why it could be, but also why it may not be, in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 121.
