Video of Diana reading from ECHO

I found this video on Diana Gabaldon's YouTube channel yesterday, and thought it was worth sharing.

Don't watch this unless you've read ECHO Chapter 12 ("Enough").

I've heard Diana do humorous readings before; when I attended her book-signing in Columbia, MD, in September, she read the "squidgy" scene from ECHO, which is very funny. But this is the first time I've heard her read a more emotionally intense scene, and I thought it was really well done. She captured Claire's emotions very well.

This video comes from Diana's recent German book-tour. Enjoy!

Thank you posting this reading. I agree; Diana did a wonderful job of capturing the emotions of the scene. It had me in tears. I love your blog and appreciate all the time and effort that goes into it. You are amazing.

Wow...I don't know if I can see good enough to type eyes are so full of tears.

I've always thought that Diana's words came from deep within her own soul and now I have no doubt.

Thank you for sharing this!!!
