Events of the NovelsEdit

Written in My Own Heart's BloodEdit

In 1739, Roger MacKenzie has traveled back through the stones with his ancestor Buck MacKenzie looking for his son Jem. During their search for him the two separate to cover more ground.

Buck however is suffering from a strain on his heart from the time travel and requires medical attention. Roger is called back to check upon his kinsmen to find him in the care of a local doctor named Hector McEwan. Other than tending to Buck Hector takes notice of Roger's scar upon his neck. And using his gift of healing, a blue glow as Roger saw it, he begins to mend the injury. Hector advises that he resides in Cranesmuir if they should require further medical help.

Choosing to track down Buck's biological mother Geillis Duncan, the two men meet Hector again in her home. When Geillis takes Buck upstairs, Hector shows some jealousy, which Roger tries to calm explaining that Buck's interest isn't like that. Hector reveals that he, too, is a traveler and knows that Geillis is one as well, though she'd not said it. He also tells Roger he knows Geillis had been pregnant with his child but rid herself of it.

In some ways Hector confides in Roger as one might a minister, telling him about how he had a wife and two children in his own time. Roger suggested that Hector think of returning to them.

When Roger finds his wife Brianna and children Jem and Mandy at Lallybroch, Brianna has injured her ankle. Roger brings her to Hector who tends the injury and Brianna, too, sees the blue glow from his healing touch. Hector invites the MacKenzie family to stay in his small home while they needed it, saying he would sleep elsewhere.
