I totally imagined her when reading another character at the end of Echo in the Bone...but won't say anymore.
Part of my enthusiasm for these books is Diana herself. If you watch any of her online videos or interviews, I thought the same thing, she is Claire. Spoilers in the Q&A sessions so be careful!
Just found your blog and have been enjoying reading your comments as you make your way through the books. Scary how similar our thoughts are on some of the more dramatic plot points. :) Saw this particular post in which you mention that Diana Gabaldon is your Claire. I had the opportunity to hear her speak at a luncheon in Michigan last May. During the Q&A portion of this event, she spoke about how she is not Claire (there is some of this discussion in the Companion); Diana Gabaldon did reveal that she is Jenny Fraser Murray. :)
I LOVE that!!!! Next to J/C and my wannabe BFF/faux boyfriend Lord John, Jenny is my favorite character. Tho I must say I still haven't quite forgiven her for the Laoghaire (aka "Wee Ho") incident....
Sassy - some day I'll finish them all. And then we're gonna CHAT, you and me. :)Galaxi - thanks for letting me know. I watched one video that was a part 2 of 6 - and felt OK because it was about Outlander. That is as far as I'll venture until I'm finished Echo. Diana - Can't believe DG is Jenny! WOW! I did not expect that!Ugh - Tracey - the wee ho - I just know she's going to rear her black heart again at some point. I just know it.
