New releases for week of Sept. 22

  The fall book season is really heating up! Check out these new releases:
  “An Echo in the Bone” by Diana Gabaldon: The seventh installment of the “Outlander” series continues the story of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Frasier and Claire Randall, his 20th-century time-traveling wife.
  As the American Revolution looms, both Jaimie and Claire know what the outcome will be, but the question still remains of whether they will survive the rebellion. Meanwhile, in the the 20th century, Claire and Jamie’s daughter and her husband follow the couple’s story through Claire’s letters, searching for clues to the pair’s fate, which will ultimately affect their own.
  Another big fall release expected this week is Margaret Atwood’s “The Year of the Flood,” which returns to the dystopic setting featured in 2002’s “Oryx and Crake,” this time focusing on two women who have survived catastrophe and now must make their way through a changed world.
