SPOILER ALERT: Dinna read unless you have finished Drums of Autumn.
So my sister Tracey (and Outlander mentor) has been telling me I should post about Outlander mentors - and how it's vital to have one. Which, it is, Sassenachs. I have had more than one occasion where something happened in the books and I've had to call my sister - who is always at least a half a book ahead of me - and ask questions. Or complain. Or yell. Or cry my eyes out.
I called Tracey on the first page of Dragonfly in Amber to say "WHAT THE F*%#???????"
I called her again at the end (and many times in between) to cry my eyes out and spend an hour discussing the books - our lives - and just generally sound like Nancy Kerrigan whilst chanting "Why? WHY?" over and over again.
Tracey, Jenn and I had a massive one hour conference call when Marsali burst in on Jamie and Claire in Voyager. THAT was an interesting call.
And I called Tracey in tears - with a desperate need for guidance when Ian became a Mohawk. (Poor Shannon had to endure this alone as she was in Florida visiting relatives.) I shudder to think of not being able to call my mentor when I need to discuss.
So again - I ask you: Who is YOUR Outlander Mentor??
