Just the Outlander chapter

The chapter opens with the wedding. Jamie has made it to the church by walking despite the pain in his knee. I love that this injury hasn’t just been overlooked and is a constant problem for him even now.

We get to see the Quaker wedding. This isn’t just about Bobby and Silvia joining together. This is about their families. The children get involved in the union, with Chastity being absolutely adorable. There are also a lot of other children from the Ridge present.

The Crombies chose not to attend. They don’t agree with there not being a minister at the wedding, although Roger isn’t offended by that. He views this as a handfasting in Scotland, and I love that connection. It wouldn’t be surprising if this was where the Quaker custom came from, even though they probably don’t want to admit that.

The only Crombie who does show up is Cyrus, who is dressed up nicely and it seems to be to impress Fanny. Patience wonders if he is Fanny’s suitor because of this. Maybe this is just setting up a bit of a love triangle in the 10th book.

The chapter ends with the drama that pushes us into the next book, though. Claire and Jamie spot a rider coming to the house. It’s William. The chapter ends with him coming to Jamie and saying, “Sir, I need your help.”
