With the help of his cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society where intrigue and parties are abundant, but political gain proves far less fruitful. Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship.
