canvas, with the feel of my first husbandâ€s kiss on my lips.  PART

1: IN MEDIAS RES  Itâ€s October of 1770, and the Frasers of

Fraserâ€s Ridge have come to a great Gathering on Mount Helicon (now

known as Grandfather Mountain). In the morning, Claire wakes in a tent

beside her husband, Jamie, from a dream of her first husband, Frank.

Itâ€s her daughter Briannaâ€s wedding day, and as Claire admits to

herself, what could be more natural than that both her daughterâ€s

fathers should be there?  Briannaâ€s wedding to Roger MacKenzie is

not the only notable occurrence of the day. Claire has barely got her

stockings on before a company of Highland soldiers, sent by the governor

of the colony, William Tryon, is drawn up by the creek to issue a

proclamation from the governor, demanding the surrender of persons known

to have taken part in the Hillsborough riots—some of whom are in fact

at the Gathering. Â Thus begins a Very Long Day, during which all of

the events and story lines that will be carried on through the book

begin:  1. Brianna and Rogerâ€s relationship. They love each other

madly and want nothing more than to be married and together forever.


But. Brianna is hesitant about having more children; she doesnâ€t know

for sure who her son Jemmyâ€s father is—it could be Roger, but

sheâ€s terribly afraid that it might be Stephen Bonnet, the pirate who

raped her. Roger has claimed Jemmy as his own—but he desperately wants

another child, one he knows is his. Orphaned in infancy, heâ€s been

alone in the world for a long time.  Briannaâ€s hesitation is

twofold: Sheâ€s a young woman; Jemmy would be self-sufficient in

fifteen years; she could at that point try to return to the future, to

the twentieth-century world that is hers by right. But not if she has

more children, who would anchor her to the past. Also, childbirth is

dangerous; one of the women at the Gathering has kindly given her some

embroidery silk—with which to adorn her shroud, which by tradition she

should begin making the day after the wedding. “That way, Iâ€ll have

it woven and embroidered by the time I die in childbirth. And if Iâ€m a

fast worker, Iâ€ll have time to make one for you, too—otherwise, your

next wife will have to finish it!―  But how can she deny Roger what

she knows he wants so badly?  2. Jamieâ€s relationship with Governor

Tryon, which is delicate to begin with. The governor has given Jamie a

large grant of land, on condition that he people it with settlers. One

of Jamieâ€s reasons for attending the Gathering is to recruit suitable

immigrants from Scotland to come and homestead on his land—heâ€s

looking particularly for ex-Jacobite prisoners, especially men who were

imprisoned with him at Ardsmuir after Culloden and who may have survived

transportation. Â The delicate bit is that Jamie is a Catholic and thus

not allowed to own land grants under English law. Governor Tryon knows

this but has chosen to look the other way, for the sake of getting the

backcountry—always a volatile trouble spot, full of discontented

hunters, trappers, and small farmers, all pushing against the Indian

Treaty Line and none of them paying taxes regularly—settled and

stabilized.  However, the unspoken fact of Jamieâ€s Catholicism hangs

over their dealings, and when Archie Hayes, commander of the company of

Highland soldiers, presents Jamie with a letter from Tryon, appointing

him colonel of militia and ordering him to collect “so many Men as you

Judge suitable to serve in a Regiment of Militia, and make Report to me

as soon as possible of the Number of Volunteers that are willing to turn

out in the Service of their King and Country, when called upon, and also

what Number of effective Men belong to your Regiment who can be ordered

out in case of an Emergency, and in case any further Violence should be

attempted to be committed by the Insurgents,― Jamie has no good way to

refuse. As he tells Claire, “I must. Tryonâ€s got my ballocks in his

hand, and Iâ€m no inclined to see whether heâ€ll squeeze.― Â

Tryonâ€s concern with assembling a militia is the “Insurgents―—the

Regulation, a growing movement of disaffect
