Publisher's Summary

Mourning the death of his father and gravely injured at the hands of the English, Jamie Fraser finds himself running with a band of mercenaries in the French countryside, where he reconnects with his old friend, Ian Murray. Both are nursing wounds, both have good reason to stay out of Scotland, and both are still virgins despite several opportunities to remedy that deplorable situation with ladies of easy virtue.
But Jamie's love life becomes infinitely more complicated - and dangerous - when fate brings the young men into the service of Dr. Hasdi, a Jewish gentleman who hires them to escort two priceless treasures to Paris. One is an old Torah; the other is the doctor's beautiful daughter, Rebekah, destined for an arranged marriage. Both Jamie and Ian are instantly drawn to the bride-to-be - but they might be more cautious if they had any idea who they're truly dealing with.

Sweet story but

The reader makes Jaime sound like a grunting Neanderthal. The story was ok, but lacking something. Perhaps it was just the reader. He really didn't seem to capture Jaime well at all.

Like visiting old friends.

It was great to sit and visit a spell with the younger Jaime and Ian.

Diana captures perfectly the atmosphere of being on the edge of self discovery and growth not only in the exploration of love, but also in the inevitability of loss that is often its flip side.

But as always Jaime though injured physically and emotionally rose to the challenge, with Ian his right hand man backing him all the way.
It was good to here Jaime's skeptical, "em-eh" again.

The narrator did and excellent job with the content presentation and the accents.

What a loverly serendipitous way to start the Memorial Day weekend.

I would recommend this book to all who soldier on through life's varied challenges, not giving in or giving up until we give it our all.

I selected the 5* rating because, I felt quite encapsulated in Jaime's world and experience as the story unfold.

A good short for Gabaldon fans

I liked the narrator's Scots accent, which fitted the characters well. If you love Diana Gabaldon's other books, this will not disappoint, but if you haven't read them, this may be confusing to some.

Story telling is so important

Why didn't Davina Porter tell the story?
After getting so used to her and the voices for each character I found this hard to follow.
Didn't enjoy this 😔

Fabulous narration, wish it was longer!

Would you listen to Virgins again? Why?

Have already listened to it twice and will no doubt listen to it again before too long. Easy to listen to with wonderful narration (considering it's not the always spectacular Davina Porter).

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, of course Jamie BUT it was a real treat to get to know Ian a little more, especially as they are both out of their natural environs.

Which character – as performed by Allan Scott-Douglas – was your favourite?

I loved him doing Ian. As daft as it sounds, Jamie is, and always will be Davina Porter in book form and Sam Heughan on screen.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh plenty. Lots of fabulous banter between the two besties.

Any additional comments?

Am so used to all of (well, most of) Diana's books being tomes (which I relish), that I was left wanting. I guess I, like many others, just can't get enough of James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser (et al).

Waste of time

What disappointed you about Virgins?

There didn't seem to be any purpose in this book. Quite disappointing to read after reading the Outlander series, which are so informative and exciting. Diana Gabaldon excels in long novels rather than short ones I think.

What could Diana Gabaldon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She should have turned this into a story about Jamie's time in France rather than just a snippet. It just came across as meaningless and I got the feeling it was written more from financial gain than readers pleasure.

What about Allan Scott-Douglas’s performance did you like?

I think it was alright... I'm writing this review quite a while after I finished the book, only just found time to review it.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Virgins?

I would add more to the story or scrapped the whole thing completely.
