Diana Gabaldon. A Breath of Snow and Ashes. New York: Delacorte Press, 2005.

In the early 1770s, North Carolina’s Royal Governor Josiah Martin asks Jamie Fraser to help defend the colony against rebellion. Jamie feels conflicted, not only between his oath to the King and his belief in freedom, but also because his time-traveling wife, daughter, and son-in-law have told him that war is coming and will end in American independence. As in several others of the Outlander series (this is the sixth), his relatives provide him with personal as well as political foreknowledge, and Jamie hopes that he can prevent tragic events that will be reported in a 1776 Wilmington newspaper.
