Just the Outlander chapter

Roger starts the chapter by apologizing to Brianna. She just tells him that everything is okay. Roger is hungry and needs to wash, so he goes inside to the Brumby house.

Brianna finds Angelina and Henrike talking about the battle and what Roger has likely seen. Brianna is surprised to learn that the two believe Roger was on the British side of the action. That makes her think of Pulaski again, and how they thought she was a Loyalist too. How much influence do the Greys have? What have they done for the war efforts?

Bree’s mind goes back to Roger, though. When she gets upstairs to his clothing, she finds the letter that he was going to send her. She also realizes that he was in the battle. He was there on the battlefield. She’s angry at first, but then she realizes that she just didn’t look at everything that a minister would do.

While she was prepared for the weddings and funerals, she didn’t think that it would mean he’d be on the battlefield to minister to the dying. She also never thought about him being there to bury the dead afterward. It’s a stark reminder of everything that he is going to face in the Revolutionary War. Roger isn’t out of the thick of it.
