    Hi Karen it was hard to pick a favorite , but I think the first line from Voyager " because when I first read "Dragonfly In Amber " when Claire goes back to the future , you didn't see what happened to Jamie when he leaves her near the stones , so I had to read that right away and was please to learn that Jamie was still alive by that first line , please post more soon. Happy Weekend.
