Events of the NovelsEdit

VoyagerEdit

In 1766, Janet is present at Lallybroch when Jamie arrives home with Claire for the first time after Claire returns through the stones. Jenny sends Janet to tell Laoghaire that Claire is back, and Janet innocently does so. She is very upset by the events that unfold afterwards and apologizes to Claire and tells Claire that Jenny was the person who sent her to Laoghaire's.
