Isaiah had previously slept with Lionel Brown’s (Ned Dennehy) daughter Alicia, which had thwarted his plans to have her marry a wealthy suitor.

There was more to the story as it was revealed Alicia and Isaiah were in love with each other and have been kept apart by his arranged marriage.

While Isaiah escaped his capture, it was later revealed Alicia is actually pregnant with his child as well.

Heartbroken, she attempted to kill herself which led Claire and Jamie to decide to help Alicia and Isaiah flee together.

Fans last saw the pair head out in the wilderness together but fans of the book will know this is not the last they will see of them.

Alicia is played by a young British actor named Anna Burnett.

Fans are likely to recognise her best from playing Mathilda Reid in Ripper Street from 2014 until 2016.

However, she is also known from starring in shows like Jonathan Creek, Doc Martin and Manhunt.
