I hope you'll take a moment to vote in the new poll for November, which is all about the children in Diana Gabaldon's books.  I personally love Diana's portrayals of the kids, and I'm curious to know if any of you have a particular favorite.  (If your choice is not listed, just vote "Other" and leave a brief comment.  Thanks!)
