Bree paints a portrait in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 94

Brianna and William head to the American camp in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 94. This is something Bree needs to do, as she’s been asked to paint a portrait of a general who has died.

Of course, Bree wants to learn a little about the man before she paints the portrait. This is important to her to make sure she captures the man in the right light. There’s a bittersweet moment when she asks about his family and doing a portrait for them.

There is something that stands out for me in this chapter. He assumes that Bree is a Loyalist. That seems strange when he’ll know that Jamie and Claire are on the American side of the war. Why would he think his sister would choose a different side to them? That doesn’t make all that much sense to me.

The chapter itself doesn’t seem to foreshadow much, though. I think the focus is on this relationship between brother and sister. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section.

I would love to see this chapter used in the TV series. I’m not sure that it will be used, but I do think that it should be for the sake of seeing Bree and William’s relationship. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.

Let’s get into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 94.
