Can Roberta and Tommy help him smash the Klan?

Tạp chí tiêu điểm - Biển Đông và biển Hoa Đông : Những nguy cơ chiến tranh nào giữa Trung Quốc và Mỹ ?

TẠP CHÍ TIÊU ĐIỂM

Thứ Bảy, 29/05/2021, Philippines lại gởi công hàm ngoại giao phản đối « sự hiện diện và các hoạt động bất hợp pháp » của Trung Quốc tại Biển Đông. Trước đó hai hôm, ngày 27/05/2021, Nhật Bản và Liên Hiệp Châu Âu trong cuộc họp cấp cao trực tuyến, kêu gọi « duy trì hòa bình và ổn định tại eo biển Đài Loan ». Căng thẳng gia tăng tại Biển Đông và biển Hoa Đông và ẩn sau đó là những rủi ro xung đột giữa Mỹ và Trung Quốc. Làm thế nào đánh giá được những rủi ro đó ? Nhà báo Joris Zylberman trên trang mạng RFI lần lượt phân tích những nguy cơ có thể dẫn đến đối đầu quân sự Mỹ - Trung tại ba điểm nóng ở châu Á – Thái Bình Dương : Eo biển Đài Loan, biển Hoa Đông và Biển Đông. Đài Loan và chiến lược mập mờ Từ năm 2019, Trung Quốc không ngừng gia tăng sức ép không - hải quân đối với Đài Loan. Ông Tập Cận Bình và đảng Cộng Sản Trung Quốc tuyên bố hạ gục « tỉnh nổi loạn » bằng cuộc chiến tiêu hao hay bằng vũ lực nếu thấy cần thiết. Đối với ông Tập, không thể để gánh nặng hợp nhất này cho thế hệ tiếp theo. Kế hoạch tái chiếm có thể được hình dung theo hai bước. Đầu tiên là phá hủy các trung tâm chỉ huy, căn cứ không quân và hải quân sau khi tấn công tin học để vô hiệu hóa hệ thống phòng thủ và chiếm lấy kiểm soát không phận. Rồi tiếp đến mới cho đổ bộ. Nhà nghiên cứu Mathieu Duchatel, giám đốc chương trình châu Á, Viện Montaigne lưu ý trong cuộc chiến này Trung Quốc chưa chắc gì nắm lấy phần thắng. Đó sẽ là một cuộc chiến hao tốn nhân lực. Và nhất là Bắc Kinh chưa làm chủ được một yếu tố quan trọng : Phản ứng của Mỹ. Thế nên, theo ông Mathieu Duchatel, « kịch bản khả dĩ nhất, chính là hai hay ba thời điểm khủng hoảng trong 10 năm, đưa Trung Quốc dần dần tiến đến mục tiêu của mình. Mỗi một cuộc khủng hoảng sẽ mang lại một chút lợi thế. Điều quan trọng là Bắc Kinh cần trắc nghiệm quyết tâm kháng cự của Đài Loan và Hoa Kỳ ». Nước Mỹ của Joe Biden sẽ làm gì ? Với đạo luật 1979, « Taiwan Relations Act », Hoa Kỳ cam kết cung cấp vũ khí để Đài Bắc có thể tự vệ trước những hành động gây hấn của Bắc Kinh, nhưng đồng thời vẫn tôn trọng « nguyên tắc một nước Trung Hoa duy nhất ». Vậy khi Đài Loan bị xâm chiếm, liệu Mỹ có sẽ đến ứng cứu hay không ? Về điểm này, nước Mỹ vẫn tỏ thái độ nước đôi, đến mức có cả một chính sách : « Mập mờ về chiến lược » Hiện tại, tổng thống Joe Biden không đoạn tuyệt với chính sách của Donald Trump. Ông cũng gởi các đặc sứ cấp cao đến gặp tổng thống Đài Loan Thái Anh Văn. Tháng 4/2021, Joe Biden cho dỡ bỏ những hạn chế các cuộc tiếp xúc cấp cao với chính quyền Đài Bắc. Ông thậm chí còn vận động được G7 lên án « những hành động quấy rối của Trung Quốc nhắm vào Đài Loan ». Phải chăng chủ nhân Nhà Trắng hiện nay sắp làm rõ chính sách của mình về Đài Loan ? Đây cũng chính là những gì mà nhiều tướng lĩnh cấp cao Mỹ đòi hỏi từ ba tháng qua. Đối với cựu đô đốc James Stavridis, sự mập mờ về chiến lược « rất có thể dẫn đến những đánh giá sai lầm từ phía Trung Quốc (hay từ Đài Loan) và khơi dậy một cuộc xung đột diện rộng. » Thế nhưng, đó không phải là quan điểm của chính quyền Biden, nhất là với bà Avril Haines, giám đốc tình báo quốc gia (cố vấn của tổng thống về tình báo). Theo bà, « việc từ bỏ chiếc lược nước đôi có lẽ gây bất ổn sâu sắc cho Trung Quốc. Điều này sẽ còn củng cố ý tưởng của Trung Quốc cho rằng Hoa Kỳ quyết tâm ngăn chặn sự trỗi dậy của Trung Quốc, kể cả thông qua sức mạnh quân sự. Điều này chắc chắn sẽ đẩy Bắc Kinh tìm cách gây cản trở các lợi ích của Mỹ trên toàn thế giới. » Cũng theo bà Avril Haines, việc tỏ rõ lập trường còn thúc đẩy thêm những mầm mống tuyên bố độc lập chính thức của Đài Loan, vốn dĩ là một điều tối kỵ đối với Bắc Kinh. Theo nhà nghiên cứu Antoine Bondaz, Quỹ Nghiên cứu Chiến lược (FRS), « với Đài Loan, những bảo đảm an ninh đó là không rõ ràng. » Quan điểm này đã được ông Kurt Campbell, điều phối viên của Nhà Trắng về chính sách Ấn Độ - Thái Bình Dương khẳng định. Ông cho rằng Washington và Bắc Kinh chia sẻ cùng lập trường : Duy trì nguyên trạng xung quanh đảo này ở một mức độ nào đó, là nằm trong lợi ích của cả hai cường quốc. Biển Đông và yếu tố Philippines bất định Tại Biển Đông, vùng biển này có diện tích rộng bằng một nửa châu Mỹ, có nhiều nguồn khoáng sản, dầu khí và còn là con đường giao thương huyết mạch, nơi trung chuyển của 1/3 thương mại toàn cầu, Trung Quốc đòi hỏi chủ quyền đến 80% diện tích khu vực. Một đòi hỏi khó thể chấp nhận được đối với nhiều nước sở hữu và cũng có các đòi hỏi chủ quyền với nhiều đảo như Việt Nam, Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei và Indonesia. Hồi tháng 2/2021, Trung Quốc ban hành một đạo luật mới cho phép « tầu tuần duyên Trung Quốc có trang bị vũ khí » được phép đáp trả « những sự cố bạo lực nghiêm trọng » tại những vùng lãnh hải mà Trung Quốc cho là có chủ quyền. Bởi vì tầu chiến nước ngoài ngày càng hiện diện đông đảo. Hạm đội Mỹ đặc biệt còn tiến hành các chiến dịch « tự do lưu thông » ở Biển Đông, vì Washington không muốn để Bắc Kinh độc quyền kiểm soát cả một khu vực chiến lược rộng lớn. Rủi ro xảy ra sự cố hiện hữu khắp vùng. Người ta còn nhớ vụ va chạm trên không giữa một tiêm kích Trung Quốc và chiếc máy bay trinh sát của Mỹ năm 2001 đã làm thiệt mạng một phi công Trung Quốc. Năm 2018, hàng không mẫu hạm USS Decatur và tầu khu trục hạm Lan Châu (Lanzhou) xuýt nữa va nhau khi chỉ cách có 41 mét. Nhà nghiên cứu François-Xavier Bonnet, Viện Nghiên cứu về Đông Nam Á đương đại (Irasec), nhận định : « Rủi ro ở đây chính là một sai lầm. Nếu một tầu chiến Mỹ bị radar Trung Quốc chiếu sáng và một chiếc tên lửa được trực tiếp bắn đi sau khi bị rọi, Hoa Kỳ có thể có phản ứng. Chiến tranh cục bộ có thể trở nên lan rộng ». Ngoài ra, Hoa Kỳ còn phải đối mặt với một rủi ro khác : Bị lôi kéo vào một cuộc đối đầu giữa Trung Quốc và một trong số các nước đồng minh của Mỹ, những nước đang có tranh chấp chủ quyền, đặc biệt là Philippines. Theo yêu cầu của Manila, Tòa Trọng Tài Thường Trực La Haye năm 2016 ra phán quyết cho rằng những đòi hỏi « chủ quyền lịch sử » của Bắc Kinh ở Biển Đông là không có cơ sở pháp lý. Vì hy vọng thu hút nhiều đầu tư Trung Quốc, tổng thống Philippines đã gạt phán quyết của La Haye sang một bên, cho đấy chỉ là « một mớ giấy lộn » đáng « ném vào sọt rác ». Thái độ nhún nhường này của ông Rodrigo Duterte cũng không ngăn cản được 200 tầu đánh cá Trung Quốc ngang nhiên neo đậu tại bãi Đá Ba Đầu hồi tháng 3/2021. Trên thực tế, đó là những đội tầu dân quân biển, có nhiệm vụ làm tiền đồn cho hải quân Trung Quốc. Theo nhà địa lý học François-Xavier Bonnet, bãi Đá Ba Đầu là phần đông bắc của Cụm Sinh Tồn, « cụm đảo quan trọng nhất tại Biển Đông ». Trung Quốc đã chiếm hai bãi đá ngầm và giờ nếu có được cả bãi Đá Ba Đầu, nước này có thể xây dựng một khu căn cứ hải quân lớn cùng với oanh tạc cơ, có khả năng tấn công đến đảo Guam của Mỹ. Một điểm khác cũng khiến Hoa Kỳ lo lắng : Căn cứ không quân trên bãi đá Chữ Thập, trong quần đảo Trường Sa. Tại đây, Bắc Kinh cho xây dựng một đường băng dài 3.000 mét và đang chuẩn bị mở rộng thêm căn cứ. Từ điểm này, một chiếc oanh tạc cơ Trung Quốc cùng với máy bay tiếp liệu có thể đi tới các bờ biển của Úc. Ông Francois-Xavier Bonnet tóm lược như sau :« Scarborough, Đá Chữ Thập (Fiery Cross), Cụm Sinh Tồn (Union Banks) và bãi Đá Vành Khăn (Mischief), khi nối tất cả các nhóm đảo này lại, Bắc Kinh có thể sẽ kiểm soát được Biển Đông, cả trên bình diện không quân, hải quân lẫn tầu ngầm. » Để hiểu rõ toàn cảnh vấn đề, chuyên gia Antoine Bondaz còn cho rằng người ta nên chú ý đến độ sâu của các vùng biển :« Biển Đông là vùng biển ngoại vi duy nhất của Trung Quốc có độ sâu lớn, ở đó người ta có thể làm cho các chiếc tầu ngầm không bị phát hiện, một điều quan trọng cho khả năng răn đe hạt nhân của Trung Quốc. Hiện tại, tầu ngầm tên lửa hạt nhân của Trung Quốc chưa thể đi tới đến bờ tây của nước Mỹ. Bởi vì, Trung Quốc còn phải đối mặt với một chuỗi các điểm không an toàn : nước này cảm thấy bị bao vây bởi hệ thống liên minh của Mỹ theo hình chữ "J" bắt đầu từ Nhật Bản, sang Đài Loan, Philippines rồi Úc. Do vậy, việc phá vỡ vòng vây này, thu hồi Đài Loan, cũng như biến Biển Đông thành một thành trì kiên cố là điều cần thiết ». Trước đà trỗi dậy mạnh mẽ về chiến lược của Trung Quốc, Washington mong muốn có thể dựa vào tất cả các đồng minh trong khu vực. Chính ở điểm này Philippines của ông Duterte lộ rõ là một yếu tố bất ổn. Vị tổng thống tính khí thất thường đe dọa hủy thỏa thuận thăm viếng quân sự (VFA) ký kết từ năm 1999. François-Xavier Bonnetgiải thích : « Thỏa thuận này cho phép các binh sĩ Mỹ tiếp cận dễ dàng hơn các khu căn cứ quân sự Philippines mà không cần hiện diện thường trực vào lúc mà Hoa Kỳ đang dần triệt thoái khỏi Afghanistan. Hoa Kỳ còn có thể đối phó với một đòn tấn công mạnh tại khu vực trong trường hợp xung đột với Đài Loan. » Trong bối cảnh này, Hoa Kỳ đã đề nghị tái đàm phán thỏa thuận. Nhưng ông Duterte tìm cách cản trở tối đa. Đối với nguyên thủ Philippines, không có chuyện chọc giận Bắc Kinh và có nguy cơ dẫn đến một cuộc xâm chiếm phía bắc Philippines từ Trung Quốc. Biển Hoa Đông : Vùng xám Nhìn sang Biển Hoa Đông, cách nay vài năm, căng thẳng giữa Nhật Bản và Trung Quốc tưởng chừng đi đến một cuộc xung đột lớn. Việc chính quyền Tokyo mua lại quần đảo Senkaku – mà Bắc Kinh gọi là Điếu Ngư và có đòi hỏi chủ quyền – nhằm ngăn cản Shintaro Ishihara, thị trưởng Tokyo mang tư tưởng chủ nghĩa dân tộc mua lại quần đảo, đã làm cho mối quan hệ với Bắc Kinh trở nên xấu đi. Từ đó, Trung Quốc không ngừng đưa tầu chiến xâm nhập vùng lãnh hải này và dẫn đến nhiều vụ chạm trán may thay không để lại các hậu quả. Đỉnh điểm căng thẳng là năm 2013. Hiện tại, tuy đã giảm hẳn nhưng các cuộc xâm nhập vẫn còn tiếp diễn. Giả như xung đột xảy ra, Hoa Kỳ sẽ có phản ứng ra sao ? Theo đánh giá của ông Mathieu Duchâtel, mọi việc ở vùng biển này rõ ràng hơn ở những nơi khác : Hoa Kỳ công nhận quần đảo có tranh chấp là một phần lãnh thổ không thể tách rời của Nhật Bản. Một hành động gây hấn của Trung Quốc sẽ tức thì kích hoạt Hiệp ước Phòng thủ Hỗ tương Mỹ - Nhật. « Nguy cơ xảy ra sự cố giữa Mỹ và Trung Quốc ở biển Hoa Đông hiện nay là rất thấp. Khả năng răn đe của Nhật Bản là khả tín, dù rằng các cuộc xâm nhập của Trung Quốc vào vùng 12 hải lý ở quần đảo Senkaku/Điếu Ngư là một "thách thức vùng xám » khó kiểm soát vì đó là những lực lượng tuần duyên chứ không phải là hải quân Trung Quốc. Thế răn đe của Nhật Bản đã được củng cố thêm do lập trường rõ ràng của Mỹ trong việc bảo đảm an ninh, được áp dụng cho cả quần đảo Senkaku. Chuyện đi lại của hải quân và không quân Trung Quốc tại eo biển Miyako ở giai đoạn này mới chỉ là một chủ đề song phương Trung – Nhật. Nếu so với Biển Đông, trường hợp biển Hoa Đông cho thấy rõ Trung Quốc ít dám mạo hiểm hơn khi mối tương quan lực lượng rõ ràng là bất lợi cho Trung Quốc. Đây chính là trường hợp liên minh Mỹ - Nhật ».

Outlander Kitchen: To the New World and Back Again.By Theresa Carle-Sanders Intro: Welcome to the number one cookbook podcast, Cookery by the Book with Suzy Chase. She's just a home cook in New York City, sitting at her dining room table, talking to cookbook authors.Theresa Carle-Sanders: My name is Theresa Carle-Sanders, and my new cookbook is Outlander Kitchen: To the New World and Back Again.Suzy Chase: For more Cookery by the Book, you can follow me on Instagram. If you enjoy this podcast, please be sure to share it with a friend. I'm always looking for new people to enjoy Cookery by the Book. Now, on with the show. So, for listeners unfamiliar with the Outlander and the Lord John Grey series, can you tell us a little bit about it?Theresa Carle-Sanders: So, the Outlander series is about a woman named Claire, and she's a World War Two nurse, who after the war goes to Scotland with her husband, Frank, and while they're visiting some standing stones, she actually disappears through those stones and travels back in time to 18th century Scotland, and that's the Outlander story. The story is of Claire and her exploits with the man she eventually meets, Jamie, of course, a kilted highlander who's always a hero. And the story starts in Scotland, eventually, without spoiling too much for those of you that don't know anything, they eventually end up in France and then they eventually end up in the American colonies. And along the way, they meet a number of great characters, one of them being Lord John Grey. Lord John Grey is the governor of a prison when we first meet him, where Jamie has been interred for the Jacobite Rebellion, and Lord John Grey, although he's tied to the English military, he's a very wealthy man with his own means. And after he's been the governor of the prison, he then goes on in his life to fight in Germany and to govern in Jamaica and his story intertwines with Jamie and Claire's all the time. And so, Lord John Grey books are a series of books that have been taken from the main series and Diana has run with them. So, we see all of Lord John Grey's exploits and adventures when he's not necessarily with Jamie and Claire. And there's lots of good food in those stories and lots of really great fun excerpts that I've decided to include in this book.Suzy Chase: I heard that you have a two stage love affair with Outlander. What does that mean?Theresa Carle-Sanders: When I first discovered Outlander, it was after a bit of turmoil in my life. I'd quit a job that wasn't really suited to me, and so I went into a bookstore and I went looking for an adventure and it was Diana Gabaldon's Outlander that stood out on the shelf to me. So, I grabbed that and I ended up reading it all the way through. It really helped me through that quite traumatic time in my life. It was comforting and there's lots of characters and it's a really great escape novel. And I then went on to the remaining books in the series, there were five at that time, all the way up to The Fiery Cross. There's now eight Outlander books in the main series, and so most of us who are fans, read them over and over and over again. And it was after the first cookbook, I took a little Outlander kitchen break, understandably. It was a lot of Outlander at one time. And then, a couple of years later, I found myself missing some of those characters, and in particular Lord John. And so, I went back and read all of his stories again and that's when I discovered that I hadn't really been paying attention to the food in those novels. And there's so much food and so much travel and adventure, and so many different cuisines, that I really just had to do it.Suzy Chase: So, Outlander has definitely become a catalyst for your life changes. And let's go to 2010, when you were walking in the woods with your dalmation named Pongo, what happened then?Theresa Carle-Sanders: It was almost like a message from the trees. I go on a walk every day, it's a mental health thing for me, clears my head, gets my head straight and my thoughts centered. And out of nowhere, a dish from Voyager, which is the third book in the Outlander series, popped into my head and it was rolls stuffed with pigeon and truffle, which sounds quite exotic. And I was absolutely enamored once that thought was in my head, I had to know what they tasted like. And so, by the time I got home, I'd actually had this whole idea in my head, had blossomed, of a cookbook related to Outlander and wouldn't it be a great idea? And so, the first thing I did after I got home and dried off the dog was to write a letter to Diana's publicist at the time. And surprisingly enough, I got an email back from Diana herself the very next day saying, "What a great idea, a strange idea, but what a great idea, why don't you do it?" And so, I did, I made that first recipe, rolls stuffed with pigeon and truffles and she put it on her blog, and that's really where it all started. The fans really seem to love this extra thing they could do with Outlander, how they could connect with it. And I had a blog for a few years and shared Outlander recipes regularly. And then, the TV show came along and when the TV show came along, they decided that was the time for a cookbook. And so, it all came together from 2010, up to 2013, that's when I started writing the cookbook.Suzy Chase: So, when did you begin recording every mention of food you came across in Diana's stories?Theresa Carle-Sanders: Right after the email I got from her telling me, "What a great idea." So, it was back in 2010, I didn't have a Kindle at that point. So, I went through my paperbacks and read them all, and I have a journal. I now actually read on my Kindle and I highlight as I go, I highlight the food. And then, I take a moment when I'm finished the book to go back and record everything into that same journal, handwritten, so that I do have it on paper somewhere, sometimes things on computers and iPads and things get lost. So, I do like to have a paper component of it, but most of my planning is now done on an Excel spreadsheet. I get to move things around and I think there's over 800 mentions of food in some of the Outlander novels, in the Lord John Grey novels, so you can see there's a lot of foods. So, from there, I have to pick the excerpt that fits the best and gives you the most emotional reaction and is the most visceral excerpt that I can find, that mentions that food. There's bannocks, and there's scones, and there's oatmeal and porridge in Outlander and they're mentioned dozens and dozens of times. So, to find that excerpt is really, I think, what I enjoy sometimes the most of putting the cookbook together is to find the perfect excerpt, so that people really connect with the recipe before they've even started it.Suzy Chase: You started with over 800 notations and then you narrowed it down to 115. I can't even imagine that work. Wow.Theresa Carle-Sanders: That's why I use this. That's why I use a spreadsheet because I can sort it any way I want and I can move things around and it's really easy. And it's actually, that really, that particular part, finding the excerpts and figuring out the table of contents and what the book is going to look like, is really exciting at the beginning. And it really lights the passion that fuels me all the way through until the book is written.Suzy Chase: Outlander kitchen is not a Scottish cookbook nor a historical one, it's an Outlander cookbook. What does that mean?Theresa Carle-Sanders: It means, why I say that, is that if you're not an Outlander fan and you've maybe seen some clips from the show, or you've heard people talking about it, you assume it's a Scottish story and that everybody stays in Scotland, so therefore all the food is going to be Scottish and 18th century. And 18th century Scottish food, I'll be honest with everybody, isn't necessarily translatable to our palates today. So, there's so many other places that they go, the characters go, and foods that they eat, the food in France, as you can imagine, is beautiful. They go down to the Caribbean. There's so many dishes that Diana describes that are new and different, and that are exciting for me to write recipes for. And, then when we get into the American colonies, the food changes so dramatically from what they've had in Europe, that it's really, it's not Scottish food. And I have to say that when the first cookbook came out, I did get mentioned in a few Scottish tabloids screaming that Tortellini Portofino is not a Scottish dish and spaghetti and meatballs are not Scottish and enchiladas are certainly not Scottish. And so, that clarification is just there for people who don't really know the Outlander story.Suzy Chase: In the introduction, Diana Gabaldon talks about the Scottish diaspora. Can you tell us a little bit about that?Theresa Carle-Sanders: Yeah. It's basically the spread of Scottish culture throughout the world. After the Jacobite Rebellion, the second one in the 18th century, many Scots were forced off the land. They were either transported to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the American colonies, or they immigrated because of financial problems, the land could no longer support them. And so, what you find is that Scottish immigrants into American colonies greatly influenced the beginning of your country, as well as my country up here in Canada. And Diana, in that, is talking about not just the food, but the music, if you think about music and how it's been influenced, dance even, and so many other facets of our culture. The Scots have influenced culture worldwide, greatly, and sometimes aren't necessarily recognized for it by the rest of us.Suzy Chase: I've heard you say that you had lots of requests for vegetarian recipes to be included in this cookbook. Tell us about the Mocktopus.Theresa Carle-Sanders: Oh, the Mocktopus with tomatoes and olives. So, I do get a lot of requests for vegetarian and for dairy-free and gluten-free. And so, I thought I'd have a little bit of fun with some of the recipes this time. There's a squid recipe in the book as well for calamari. And so, I figured we would take some giant king oyster mushrooms and grill them up, they're nice and chewy. They have the same texture as octopus, and it just allows everyone to participate in these stories and this food, it's food from fiction, so it's fun. It should be lighthearted. It doesn't always have to be historically correct. Some recipes in the book are historically correct, others needed a lot of correction to make them tasty for us. So, they're not necessarily true, but I do think they're adapted from history and they keep Outlander in mind all the time, that's what I say, it's an Outlander cookbook. So, I'm always referring back to the text rather than being too concerned about being historically accurate all the time.Suzy Chase: Have fans reached out to you?Theresa Carle-Sanders: They have. It's been a funny time to release a book. We don't have a lot of social media presence going on right now, pushing it, but I've heard from a lot of people that have had the book in their hands for a week or two now, they're really enjoying it. I'm so thrilled that people are enjoying the beauty of the book. Rebecca Wellman from Victoria took the pictures. She's an absolutely gorgeous, talented photographer, and I'm so proud of the book. And so many people have already been sending in photos of what they've been making, which is one of my favorite parts about this, is seeing what people are making and how they get the kids involved in cooking and things like that. And some of the greatest memories I have are cooking alongside my mom and grandma, so that's really special for me.Suzy Chase: I have to say that the kitchen in the Outlander TV series looks absolutely miserable. There were no windows, it was in a basement with open flames. I can't even imagine the heat. It looked like backbreaking work. And bread baking, I learned from the series, took all day.Theresa Carle-Sanders: Yes. Yeah. There's a reason that women didn't have the vote. It was because they were baking bread and washing dishes all the time before we got some modern conveniences, it was a hard, hard job. And I have to say that kitchen in Outlander, the one you see on the TV is actually very grand. It's a massive kitchen compared to what most people in the era would have had. Certainly, I mean, when you're talking about how Scottish women cooked in the Highlands in crofts, which, a croft was their small house. And the Croft had a tiny hole in the roof where the smoke escaped, most of them didn't have windows. Most of them didn't have a table. So, most of the work was done around the fire in the center of the croft with no other light, other than the peat fire. And if you've ever had a peat fire, peat fires give off almost no light. If you can imagine sitting with a bowl on your lap, on a low stool in front of this fire, trying to create dinner from most likely oats, maybe some fish if you were on a river or on the sea, and barley and kale, it was quite a drab diet. And it was quite harsh at times, up in the Highlands, which is again, why we don't always want an accurate 18th century Scottish cookbook. We want an Outlander cookbook.Suzy Chase: That's a good point. So, your editor is a fiction editor, not a cookbook editor.Theresa Carle-Sanders: Anne Speyer at Random House is connected to the editorial team that works with Diana Gabaldon. So, it was the perfect fit from that point of view. This cookbook, I think in the industry, I call it a cookbook and I'm very stubborn. I think many in the food industry would be more prone to call it a souvenir or a piece of merchandise from the series. So, it's not always taken seriously in the food world but that's fine with me. I get lots and lots of feedback from people telling me that Outlander Kitchen is a cookbook they use every day, and that's exactly what I wanted. I didn't want it to be the type of thing that was merchandise that you bought and then it sat on your bookshelf and you never used it. Working back in those days was hard and I think the cookbook honors that, and I think it should be greasy and it should have stains and it should look just like any other cookbook. Working with Anne is really great because she's got so many ideas from the fiction standpoint, and to be honest, it gives me free reign from a cookbook standpoint, I don't get a lot of harsh guidelines or criticism in these cookbooks, which a lot of traditional cookbook authors would be quite envious of, I think.Suzy Chase: I made your recipe for herb roasted salmon on page 169 and asparagus mayonnaise on page 62. Can you describe the recipe for asparagus mayonnaise?Theresa Carle-Sanders: It's really simple, elegant, make-ahead appetizer, that can be plated ahead of time and you can serve it alongside other finger food, or you can also make it as a side dish at a more formal sit down party. So, the first thing to make is the mayonnaise, and I give you instructions for that in the basic recipes at the front of the book. It's a great recipe to have right now when our pantry sometimes are a little bit low and stretched and we can't get out of the house. So, you can make that ahead of time and then you simply steam the asparagus until it's tender and then drop it into an ice bath. And by an ice bath I mean, a bowl of water filled with ice, that when you put the cooking vegetables into it, it stops the cooking immediately. So, that will keep the asparagus bright green and it'll prevent it from going that drab olive green that green vegetables get when they're overcooked.Suzy Chase: Now, can you tell us about the excerpt that you chose for this and why you chose it?Theresa Carle-Sanders: It's a strange excerpt and I think it's one of the ones where sometimes being familiar with the stories and the books helps. The expert is taken from A Fugitive Green, which is a short story that Diana wrote to fill in the cracks of some of the missing information of Outlander. It's how Lord John Grey's brother meets his wife, and it's a really great story. It's fast paced, funny. The Gray family are always full of fun. And this is his to-be wife, has been sent to London by her father to find a husband, much against the character's wishes. And her father has contracted a husband finder, basically. And so, the excerpt is the poor woman's schedule from bath to body groomer, to hairdresser, and then to the supper party. And I chose it because it's humorous because it puts this very independent woman in a very awkward situation. She's angry at her father. She's frustrated by this woman who wants to find her a husband, and in the meanwhile, she's trying to solve a mystery.Suzy Chase: And how does the asparagus come into play?Theresa Carle-Sanders: It's basically part of the scene. She's been chatting with a duke and they've been chatting briefly over asparagus mayonnaise. So, it's a really brief mention of the food, if you see what I mean, but the entire excerpt, when you bring it together, it will make Outlanders smile at the remembrance of the scene.Suzy Chase: What's a body groomer? I don't even want to know.Theresa Carle-Sanders: I have my suspicions. I don't know, particularly in this case, but for example, the Romans had body groomers and they had these scrapers. So, they would scrape the oil down your arms, down your body, and it was something that was done after bathing. I suspect it's something like that. It would hurt. If you can imagine scraping down your skin and hard enough to extract the oils from your skin, that's what's going on.Suzy Chase: Okay. So, now for my segment called My Favorite Cookbook. What is your all-time favorite cookbook and why?Theresa Carle-Sanders: I think I'm going to have to go with Julia Child’s Collection. It's one that a lot of cooks my age always reference. And it's important because my dad and I watched a lot of Julia Child on PBS when I was a child. And so, it brings back fond memories for me, it was my dad and I who really had a connection as I got older, with good food and food in restaurants, he loved to dine out, and he loved to watch Julia Child and Jacques Pepin. Jacques Pepin, I'm a huge fan of him as well. And it's from my childhood, I find them comforting. I can sit down with a glass of wine and flip through a Julia Child's book and discover what's for dinner. I never, ever, ever follow her recipes to the T though, I'll admit it right now. She uses too many pots and pans.Suzy Chase: Okay. So, do you want to give us a little hint, a teeny, tiny clue about your next cookbook?Theresa Carle-Sanders: I'm dying to tell everybody what I've been working on. It's a big, exciting project. I can't quite say it out loud just because we haven't signed the papers yet, but if those of you who are interested want to go to my Goodreads page, if you look at the books I've been reading for the last year and a half, you'll probably figure it out quite quickly, and that's all I'm going to say.Suzy Chase: Ooh, the intrigue. So, where can we find you on the web and social media?Theresa Carle-Sanders: You can find me at OutlanderKitchen.com and then I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And you can certainly do a search for Outlander Kitchen, you'll find me there. Also by my name, Theresa Carle-Sanders.Suzy Chase: Great.

In light of recent events, Joe and Kendall pull an audible to discuss Superman Smashes the Klan. This started as a 16-episode story in the 1946 Adventures of Superman radio show titled “Clan of the Fiery Cross.” The radio show used the story to bring the KKK’s behavior out into the open and showcase them as anti-democratic and un-American. And it worked!   Superman Smashes the Klan is the first time that story has been adapted into a comic book--nearly 75 years later--and is designed for a younger audience. Even more surprising is how infuriatingly relevant this story still is. Join us, Bat-Fanatics, as we follow the Lees' experience with racism in Metropolis, get a little humanitarian, and (best of all) watch Superman man-handle some hooded racists.  Plus?!

While Dr. Lee is greeted warmly in his new position at the Metropolis Health Department, his two kids, Roberta and Tommy, are more excited about being closer to their famous hero, Superman! While Tommy adjusts to the fast pace of the city, Roberta feels out of place, as she tries and fails to fit in with the neighborhood kids. As the Lees try to adjust to their new lives, an evil is stirring in Metropolis: the Ku Klux Klan. When the Lee family awakens one night to find a burning cross on their lawn, they consider leaving town. But the Daily Planet offers a reward for information on the KKK, and their top two reporters, Lois Lane and Clark Kent, dig into the story. When Tommy is kidnapped by the KKK, Superman leaps into action-with help from Roberta! But Superman is still new to his powers-he hasn't even worked out how to fly yet, so he has to run across town. Will Superman and Roberta reach Tommy in time? Inspired by the 1940s Superman radio serial "Clan of the Fiery Cross," Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, The Terrifics, New Super-Man) presents his personal retelling of the adventures of the Lee family as they team up with Superman to smash the Klan.

In this episode I chat with Rosemary Loperena, a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) from Aguadilla, PR. Rosemary attended and graduated from Birthingway College of Midwifery in Portland, OR after first spending 10 years working as an Industrial Engineer. She felt her call to Midwifery while completing her training to become a Licensed Massage Therapist and Doula. Rosemary offers so much wisdom in this episode about navigating birth, particularly in Puerto Rico. She even provides us with a list of resources for childbirth classes, doula services, midwifery care and midwifery education across the island. We dove into how she juggled making an income while in school, working at four different midwifery practices in order to gain all the skills she needed to take the NARM exam, her upcoming trip to Haiti with Mama Baby Haiti, and the tension she feels in serving her beloved community in Puerto Rico and the Latin community in Portland, Oregon. You can support the midwives and mothers giving birth in Haiti on the Mama Baby Haiti website and support Rosemary's trip to Haiti here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-rose-loperena-serve-pregnant-woman-in-haiti. Rosemary is currently enjoying the ocean back home in Puerto Rico, specifically Crashboat Beach, which is a gorgeous strip of coast on the western side of the island, with turquoise blue water and an uber fresh fish shop right on the sand. She's also been into gardening, sleeping (birthworkers, you know!), knitting, playing pingpong, and reading Diana Gabaldon's, The Fiery Cross.

Season 4 Episode 413 Man of Worth Directed by: Stephen Woolfenden Written by: Toni Graphia   My initial thoughts are below, but you'll need to listen to the podcast to get the details! Summary:  Roger remains imprisoned. Jamie and Claire arrive at the village but are turned away. River Run receives a guest. Brianna awaits the birth of her baby. Otter Tooth is revealed. Young Ian makes a decision. Jocasta gets some lovin'. Testosterone poisoning rears its head. Roger learns the truth. Roger reveals his experiences. A choice needs to be made. A baby is born. Uncle Murtagh enjoys the baby. Jamie and Claire return. The baby has no name. But is Bonnet dead? Roger returns. The British are coming. Tryon assigns Jamie a job. Things I am Pondering (in no particular order): Hey 1970's Otter Tooth, how'd you bring the gemstone through the stones without it dissolving? Young Ian is quite decked out in tribal ware and language coming into the episode. Seriously?! They traveled for months, only to get turned away. Why did the Mohawk go roughly 700 miles to bury Otter Tooth's head and the stone? Why would Murtagh, a fugitive, show up at River Run knowing Jocasta has many British friends? By the way, Murtagh has terrible manners. Where the heck is Lord John? Phaedre's magical skills feeling the baby's position through layers of clothing is, well, close to reality. Her technique was decent and well ahead of the times, but hands on a bare belly are needed to really feel for the baby's position. Would the Mohawk really have taken Otter Tooth's head and g It's a good thing Claire knows one word in Mohawk. Will the banished Mohawk woman end up at the Ridge? Jamie, Young Ian outwitted you, sir. He's a man grown now choosing his own destiny. It's gut-wrenchingly sad to see young Ian left behind. Who knew being told you were never liked and getting a drink in the face is foreplay? Smooth operator, “Remember where ye came from…” By the way, Murtagh is looking like a fine silver fox lying shirtless in bed. Jocasta is a saucy minx. Testosterone poisoning at its finest. That said, I truly enjoyed Roger's fighter coming out on Jamie. Young Ian killed the gauntlet. Clever boy. Claire's annoyed stance looks like any wife, sister, mother, waiting for the boys to stop it. I am curious why Claire did not look at Roger's obviously injured arm after he stopped hitting Jamie. Roger, Roger, Roger! So many feels. Just so damn good. As he asks questions and the information he is given sinks in and as he shares what he knows, seems to deepen the loss and difficulty of the whole situation. Roger needs a minute! Jamie simmer down. Wait a minute. ROGER cost you a lad that you love? No. Claire did by wearing that damned gemstone of Otter Tooth. One of my fave moments, when Roger says, “What?!” with disdain to Jamie. A gorgeous laboring scene with Brianna being surrounded by women then cut to Brianna being introduced to her baby. What the absolute hell?! “We will choose his birth date wisely, but you can be sure the lad was born in wedlock.” So “Uncle” Murtagh has been hanging around River Run for several months. Interesting. Brianna's sadness that Roger is not with her parents is tough to watch. But Murtagh do you really know Bonnet didn't get out of the jail too? What's the significance of that awkward dinner Brianna decides to show up at? An olive branch of forgiveness? Finally, Brianna's love for Roger shows when she runs out the door and into his arms. Homerun that. The love is there and we can feel it. “Take me to see my son.” Roger's looking pretty fine with his low cut 70's open shirt. The snuggle between Jocasta and Murtagh has Jamie and Claire perplexed. Murtagh's regulating ways have him in hot water. Ongoing thoughts: Did Roger stop at the standing stones on the way to River Run? Who's tending to and settling the Ridge? One-handed Fergus with Marsali's help and the one other tenant are not capable of doing it all these past many months. That storyline got dropped like a hot potato. Has Roger processed his trauma? Will Jamie fake Murtagh's death by sending him to Canada or back to Scotland? When in Season 5 will we get to see Young Ian decked out in his new Kanienkehakan manner? What in the heck are the circular pin adornments for? I looked it up and couldn't find the answer. Why did Brianna not ask where Young Ian was? The lack of any reconciliation between Jamie and Brianna is strange especially because she told Murtagh she already forgave him. The timey-wimey-ness of Season 4 hurts my brain and made it difficult to figure out any frame of reference. Certainly, Brianna's timeline was ahead of Roger's. He was gone for 11 months. Jamie and Claire were gone 6.5-7 months to retrieve him even though they were only a couple of weeks behind him in theory? See you next up for The Fiery Cross read-a-long.

Drums of Autumn Chapters 68-71 Week 34 “All Roads Lead to The Gathering.” Summary: Domesticity ruled the moment. Jamie and Claire drunkenly frolicked in the night. Roger and Brianna established married life. Duncan Innes came to the Ridge with a proposition. The family headed to the Gathering. The baby finally had a proper name. The Gathering hosted Scottish families from across the Colonies. A word from Young Ian was had. A Highland Regiment arrived. Lizzie got a welcomed surprise. Claire worked her pop-up clinic. Roger shared a private letter with Jamie. Jamie offered to return something special to Claire. Brianna clearly made her choice.    Inside the Chapters: Chapter 68 Domestic Bliss August 1770 Domestic bliss filled the morning and Claire thought about the night before when Jamie had invited her outdoors the night before (p1045, Nook). They wandered into the woods to intimately share each other under the moon before drunkenly going back to bed for an hour. They silently shared the memory over parritch under the acknowledging eye of Brianna. The moment was broken when Clarence announced a visitor. Duncan Innes arrived to invite them all to the upcoming gathering at Mount Helicon. The clincher for Jamie was being told a priest would be there and the baby could be baptized. Then Duncan embarrassingly dropped a bomb on Jamie; he asked permission to marry Aunt Jocasta (p1047, Nook). Duncan was a man of propriety and thought it only right to seek Jamie's blessing because he was the next of kin and her rightful heir. Jamie gave his blessing and said they would dance at the wedding. Chapter 69 Jeremiah October 1770 The baby's name had not been settled even though he was about five months old. The discussion went round and round as they traveled to the Gathering. Claire brought up Jeremiah and the nickname of Jemmy. This recalled the woman and her child from the Gloriana to Roger. He inquired to Claire if she remembered the name of his ancestor the changeling's (William Buccleigh) wife. Claire obliged. The woman's name was Morag Gunn. Her son's name was Jemmy. Claire suddenly spoke of Geilie who had said they could travel through time to change things. Chapter 70 The Gathering We have arrived at the Gathering an incredibly long and detailed set of storylines that carry on well into the next book.  Claire reflected on the last Gathering she had attended at Castle Leoch nearly thirty years prior. Though the Clans and the old way of Highland life were dead in Scotland, the Clans gathered together in this place with pride. Looking for Jamie in the crowd, Claire spotted John Quincy Myers and called to him. He was there to sell his hides and trinkets. He was surprised on a trip up in the mountains to have seen Young Ian geared out like a Mohawk. Myers presented Claire with a small package from Young Ian.  Myers left Claire assuring her he would see her later. Jamie returned, and they read the letter together. Young Ian had been married to Emily, and they were expecting a child. Rollo had also sired a great many puppies in the village. Jamie, of course, ridiculed Young Ian's use of Latin. Claire observed every Scottish family from the Colonies up to Pennsylvania must be there with more arriving all the time. Due to the difficulty of travel, families would stay about a week or so. The next day Jamie made his way to where Lizzie was sitting and offered her a great surprise. Fergus has Joseph Weymss, Lizzie's father with him. Jamie had purchased Mr. Weymss indenture contract and intended to burn it in the fire that evening. Day three and Claire was almost overwhelmed with the amount of news, gossip, and Gaelic in the air. Roger though absorbed every detail and sound as he wandered about the grounds listening. The night before he had borrowed a guitar and sang for a crowd. Jamie being no fan of music decided to take the baby for a game of dice (p1054, Nook). Claire had opened a pop-up medical clinic. She gave dietary advice trying to get the people to eat foods filled with vitamin C. She even had Jamie eating the dangerous nightshade, tomato in front of people on purpose to persuade them it was safe to eat. Instead of making dietary inroads, the others regarded Jamie supernaturally and that Himself, of course, could survive having eaten such food. Claire treated skin a family with a skin condition when a Highland regiment marched into view. Brianna and baby came up behind and asked if they were friend or foe. Did the Crown think this was a political gathering? Claire advised Bree to take the baby up into the rocks if anything happened. All around the men stepped in front of the women and children. Two men rode toward Jamie. The man dismounted and introduced himself (p1057, Nook). Chapter 71 Circle's Close Roger had been waiting to get Jamie alone. He had a message for him. Jamie took the baby from Roger and invited him to speak. Roger explained he had to wait to go through the stones after Brianna left. Roger had stayed at the Manse, his family home while waiting. He found a letter and was not sure if he should tell Claire or Brianna about it. The letter was to his father the Reverend, and the seal of confession had been broken by the death of the writer and his father. Roger spoke the memorized letter to Jamie word for word (p1059, Nook). Roger knew the struggle of thought he had gone through carrying this knowledge. Frank could have chosen to keep the information to himself and not had the Reverend place the headstone that led Claire back to Jamie after Frank's death followed by Brianna and Roger. With Brianna in the past having had a baby, Jamie's bloodline would continue. Roger wondered if it was “interest on the debt owed?” Jamie finally spoke (p1063, Nook). Roger planned to tell Brianna but asked if he should tell Claire also. Jamie said under his pledge of honesty to Claire, Roger should tell her.  Day four and even more families had arrived. Each family had their campfire that filled the night's darkness. Claire was reminded of the MacKenzie clan badge. She realized the burning mountain was a visage of a Gathering like this one representing togetherness. The motto, Luceo non uro (I shine, not burn) finally made sense to her too. There was a large fire in the clearing families came to declare their presence including Jamie announcing, “The Frasers of the Ridge.” Claire sat with the sleeping baby in her arms. Jamie sat down behind her.  They watched Roger and Brianna in intent conversation leading Jamie to wonder if they were going to change the baby's name again (p1065, Nook). After formally choosing to be husband and wife, Brianna asked Roger to go declare “the MacKenzies are here.” We DID IT! We finished the Drums of Autumn read-a-long. 34 episodes over most of a year. Thank you for sticking with me as we followed our (my favorite) book friends further into their adventures. We met new people along the way and saw the painful and painstaking process it took for Roger and Brianna to be together. Young Ian is in the hands of his new Mohawk family. Lord John has become a friend to Brianna and reestablished his friendship with Jamie. He and Claire still tolerate each other. Roger and Jamie have entered a tentative relationship. Jocasta is marrying Duncan Innes yet has no heir in Jamie or Brianna. Stephen Bonnet is on the loose. Claire and Jamie are building a life and home for themselves and others in the mountains. We learned how Frank was instrumental in Claire, Brianna, and Roger going into the 18th century. Claire hopes the coming war will stay away from the Ridge. Beware after season 4 airs on television we will be starting straightaway on a read-a-long of the immense Fiery Cross. What's Coming up? The Space Between novella.

Drums of Autumn Chapter 40 Week 21 “Virgin Sacrifice”   Breaking News: Outlander S4 will premiere in November 2018 with 13 episodes based on Drums of Autumn and adapted for television. The television series has been renewed for S5 and S6 with 12 episodes each season. S5 is expected to be adapted from Fiery Cross and S6 from A Breath of Snow and Ashes. I will be doing a read-a-long for FC in 2019 after S4 ends.  Summary: Brianna and Lizzie make it to Wilmington. The girl has been sick with fever multiple times. The next stop is Cross Creek. Lizzie learns Jamie Fraser will be at his Aunt's at River Run for a trial. Roger arrives mere days after Brianna in North Carolina and reaches Wilmington on her heels. He finds her. She is happy and upset. They are handfasted in the Scottish tradition and consummate their marriage multiple times in a shed. Brianna learns a truth. Feeling betrayed she storms back to her rented room. Roger vows to return to her. He leaves to secure a gemstone. Lizzie thinks MacKenzie raped Brianna.   Inside the Chapter: Chapter 40 Virgin Sacrifice Wilmington, the Colony of North Carolina, September 1, 1769 Brianna and Lizzie are in North Carolina waiting for Lizzie to improve from another attack of illness. Poor frail Lizzie is fevered and weak. They were riding from Charleston when the illness struck again. Brianna was terrified her companion would die in the wilderness but pressed on to Wilmington the next day when the fever temporarily broke. Brianna needs to find her mother to help with Lizzie and for herself. Taking care of Lizzie helped Brianna appreciate her size and strength. Nursing is tough work. Brianna decides it must be malaria-causing the fevers. Mosquitoes were a plague upon them once the land was in sight. Brianna could feel her mother's presence as she cared for the ailing girl (p666, Nook).  Quinine and other derivatives were the chief medicines to combat malarial fever since WWII; Claire would use Jesuit bark (cinchona bark) in the 18th century. When they arrived in Wilmington, the landlady at the inn called for an apothecary when she saw how ill Lizzie was (p667, Nook). The man left with fright and warnings. Brianna didn't exactly know how to care Lizzie but knew bloodletting wasn't the answer. She reflected on how the bugs stayed away from her, and she had vaccinations for many diseases, including malaria before she went through the stones. She wondered how many other diseases were prevalent in the sweltering city and caused by bug bites. Exhausted, she was too tired to change out of the many days worn clothing. She knew she had to find her mother as quickly as possible to help Lizzie. The small maidservant could die from another round of fever. She planned to sell the horses and take a boat upriver to Cross Creek in search of Aunt Jocasta's home, River Run. The thought of meeting more family gave Brianna a thrill. Certainly, she would be able to tell Brianna how to find Jamie and Claire. Finally, she undressed and lay naked on the quilt on the floor, drifting quickly to sleep.   The next morning Lizzie remained weak but fever free. Brianna pays the landlady extra money to keep an eye on the sick girl while she goes out to tend to the business at hand. Brianna managed to sell the horses and obtained the name of a man who took people upriver to Cross Creek by boat. When she returned to her room, Lizzie was dressed and eating. She is much better. Lizzie had been doing the washing and ironing. Brianna worries the girl will overexert herself and become ill again. When the girl explains the discovery, she'd had Brianna listens (p670, Nook). This MacNeil knows her father, mother, and Jocasta Cameron. Lizzie explains what the man said about Claire (p671, Nook). It turns out Jamie is in Cross Creek because of an upcoming trial he must attend. Brianna starts calculating the time needed to get upriver, so she doesn't miss Jamie. Roger arrived in Edenton just ten days after Brianna arrived in South Carolina. She must be in Wilmington by now, and he is determined to find her.  Roger details his journey to Wilmington (p672, Nook). He knew she was here. She had to be. It was the most logical place to secure a guide to go into the mountains to Fraser's Ridge. He learns there are twenty-three taverns where she could have taken a room or maybe in a private residence he thinks. By the time he had reached the fifth tavern people had begun sharing their sightings of her (p673, Nook). Roger was considerably worried for Brianna after hearing the stories. He was also hungry, thirsty, and lacking funds. He decided on a place to spend a couple of pennies on dinner, and maybe, just maybe he would be allowed to sleep in the stable. He saw a newspaper office and wanted to throw a rock through the window. That damned notice is what got both into this situation. Entering the Blue Bull, he sees Brianna sitting by the hearth (p674, Nook). Roger tries to make her come with him. A seaman from the cargo boat yells at Roger (MacKenzie) to let her be. Brianna finally tells the protective man she knows Roger. The man reluctantly backs off. Lizzie freaks out that Brianna may go with him. Brianna assures her it's okay and she'll be back later. Once outside, she wants to know why he's there. He takes her to a shelter. Again, she demands to know what he's doing there (p675, Nook). He kisses her, hard and tells her it will be alright. She is horrified that he is there (p675, Nook). Around and around they go. She has the temper of both her parents. Instead of throttling her back, he grabbed a handful of hair and kissed her as hard as he could, she fought him, at first. Then gave in ending in tears and sobs (p676, Nook). There it is, she didn't tell him she was going because she loved him. Now they tumble on the ground like wrestlers.  He let go of her hair, she took her arm off his neck, but Roger couldn't stop touching her neck. He makes her say it (p677, Nook). She lay in his arms weeping. They are dirty, bruised, and he is most certainly hungry. They will find a way back to the twentieth century, somehow. She is happy to see him regardless of not wanting him to follow her. He asks how long she'd been planning the trip, though he probably knew the answer based on the changes in her letters. Six months past when she went to Jamaica instead of to Scotland to see him. Of course, she had asked him to come with her, but he refused. She kept dreaming about her fathers, Frank and Jamie. There was one dream that stood out (p678, Nook). That dream is what caused her to go to Jamaica. Since the trail of Jamie and Claire was lost after 1766, she figured she would give it a shot. Maybe they had gone to Jamaica first. She began to search cargo ships since The Indies were a trade spot. She found the Artemis with a Captain James Fraser that “sold five tons of bat guano in Montego Bay on April 2, 1767.” She explains further finding the solution to Jamie being a Captain of a ship with known crippling seasickness (p680, Nook). She didn't find the freed slave, but she did find the death notice dated 1776. They are there early enough to warn her parents. Roger understands at this moment why parents or a spouse would beat them (p681, Nook). He was angry. He thought she found someone else because of her letters. He wanted to beat her because she made him think he'd lost her. She apologizes. How did he find out she'd left anyway? He tells her about the boxes arriving and the last-minute conference that had kept him in Oxford longer than expected.  She realizes he followed her even though he thought she'd found someone else (p682, Nook). He touched her under her loosened shirt. Did she mean it? The unspoken words of her body tell him she did mean it. Then her words urged him (p682, Nook).  He takes her to the nearby shed. For a moment, Brianna thinks about Lizzie. Roger didn't know who that was and didn't care either. He had her in a safe, private place behind the inn. Before they go further, they are handfasted as is a Highland's custom because a minister will be difficult to find on short notice. Roger will not lie with her unless they are married (p683, Nook). The handfasting allows for marriage for a year and a day before a final decision is made to wed or being married in the church legally. They are wed in a shed behind the Blue Bull tavern. They explore each other in the dark of the shed. She reaches down, and humor invades the exploration (p684, Nook). She quivered in his arms, but not from laughter. She was naked, and the feel of her amazed him. He remarks how he's never been able to kiss a girl without stooping down. Brianna's nervous humor invades again. He couldn't stop kissing and touching her to get undressed. She helped him out of his breeks and shocked him by reaching down to grasp him. His senses were filled with the tastes on her lips, the smell of her body and hair. He asks her to let go of him for a moment; she has a bit too strong of a grip. When she moves to her knees, he is stunned (p686, Nook). His coherency and blood leave his brain in quick order. She asks if she's doing it right. He thinks so. This is the first time anyone has done this to him. So yeah, he thinks so. He likes it well enough. Before he completely loses himself, he disengages, pulls her to her feet, and lays her down on the straw. He has only tried giving oral to a woman once, but she smelled of Sunday church flowers. Brianna did not. She drove him to abject lust. Instead, he kisses her on her lower belly (p687, Nook). He gets to his work enjoying the myriad of sensations and tastes. He felt a quiver move through her into him. He asks if he is doing it right (p687, Nook). He wonders how exactly she KNOWS he's doing it right. She laughs. They work through the awkwardness of her eagerness.  Finally, she relaxes into him. He tells her he loves her. She simply puts her hand on his face and opens to him. At the point of no return, he takes it slowly, she urges him forth. She asks if he is big. He thinks average and asks if he's hurting her a lot. She needs stillness for a minute. She reaches down his back touching his behind. She gives him the go-ahead (p689, Nook). I call this maneuver the pull and pray technique.  She declares her love for him.    After they recover, tangled together they talk (p689, Nook). He is astonished she learned so much from a book. He tells her it's terrible books go around telling young women how to do sexual things. How else would she learn if not for books? Roger must check his Victorian Presbyterian thoughts on female knowledge. He tells her there's more to it than what books can say. She's eager for him to show her more. When she woke from a light sleep thinking about how they fit together, how he had made love to her three times through the night, how she was sore and happy (p691, Nook). What a beautiful piece of writing.  Roger apologizes for them not having a proper wedding and proper bridal chamber to consummate their marriage. She assures him it was very good for her. She reaches for him, but he needs a rest. She's not the only one who might be sore. She tells him she's never been so happy and if they never get back to their own time, it is okay as long as they're together. He tells her he thinks there's another way and explains his trip through the stones and the diamond Fiona gave him. Gemstones might help to steer the traveler. He recited a poem from the grimoire (p692, Nook). Brianna thinks the poem is bonkers, but Roger points out insanity doesn't mean it isn't correct. The poem has old Celtic ritual and witchcraft within it. Roger doesn't think the blood sacrifice is needed, but the metal and gems might be necessary. He asks Brianna what she wore when she went through. The bracelet he gave her and the pearls. They discuss the possibilities of traveling through the stones and how the gemstones assist travel. They need to get a hold of some to help with their eventual travel back to their own time. The thing is, it is difficult to find gemstones outside of a large city, and the expense is too much as well. Roger has an idea where he can get one, but he must leave immediately to have a chance at it. Brianna cannot wait for Roger there, because she found Jamie Fraser. Roger wants her to wait instead of going to Cross Creek without him, but with Lizzie being sick she needs to find her mother as soon as possible. He agrees but asks her to wear a dress instead of her breeks.  She doesn't want him stealing the stone, but he says it's no big deal since the man likely stole it from someone else. The dispute was ended by one more role in the hay. Roger speaks sometime later saying he thinks he married his great-aunt six times removed. It had just dawned on him that they are related way back through the MacKenzie bloodline. The method of birth control they used throughout the night caused him to think of Geillis Duncan becoming pregnant. Brianna figures they are sixth or seventh cousins or something near that. Brianna doesn't care if it's nothing near incest. Roger couldn't give up the thought though (pp696, Nook). When Brianna learns Roger hadn't been to Lallybroch, she wants to know how he found her. Then she becomes angry realizing he had found the blasted newspaper article and never told her. She is in a rare fury. He tries to explain when he found it and why he hadn't told her. He doesn't think they can change the past (p698, Nook). He couldn't stand the idea of her being hurt. She felt betrayed that he kept it from her. It was not his place to choose whether she knew about the death notice. This reminds me of Claire yelling at Jamie sometimes.  Roger digs a deeper hole for himself (p698, Nook). She is Fraser angry now. She pulls on her breeks while cursing under her breath. She yells at him, tells him to get hanged I he wants to and that she is going to save her parents with or without him (p699, Nook). That is a terrible way to end things. It's not as if communication is simple in that era. Lizzie isn't sleeping when Brianna returns in a flurry of emotion. Brianna says she's fine, but from outside the window, Roger Mac can be heard (p699, Nook). Lizzie was frozen for a moment. She could see the change in Brianna's expression. She looked as if she had the blood fury like soldiers had. She was a Highland she-devil. She asked in Gaelic if Brianna was okay. Brianna told her to go to sleep. Lizzie simply lay awake worried what Brianna might do. Then she realizes Brianna is shaking and she feels guilty for allowing her to be hurt. Brianna finally fell asleep. Unable to sleep, Lizzie slipped from the bed, opened the shudders, and began to tidy things up. She picks up Brianna's discarded clothing (p701, Nook). She thinks Roger assaulted Brianna. She smelled Brianna's clothing, and it wreaked of a man. As she washed Brianna's clothing with lye soap, the water turns to red. She's sure Roger took Brianna's virginity and thought it by rape.   Oh, the boy has Lizzie got this wrong, but she has so little information to go by it's a logical conclusion. Roger and Brianna fighting is no good thing with separate tasks ahead of them. Where do you think Roger is getting the stone? The seaman had called Roger, MacKenzie. This is the name he is going by in the eighteenth century. It is the name Lizzie knows the dark man by too. Will Brianna tell anyone she's wedded by handfasting? Will she get to Cross Creek and meet Jamie in time? Four sexual encounters in a night, pull and pray or no, could she be with child? Will Roger get the gemstone? Will he return to her? As the last point, I love how Diana wrote the whole scene surrounding their coupling. Roger is a man of honor. He wants all of her forever.   What's Coming up? Chapters 41-42 Drums of Autumn (DOA).
