Book Description

Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another...
In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach-- an " outlander" -- in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord...1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

      Comments about Outlander:

      I'm not much of a reader but it was recommend so I decided to give it a go. It started an addiction that I had to get my next fix in the series. I couldn't put them down. The characters are so well written you have such a need to find out what happens to them. I have since followed the authors website and have a whole new family of readers to enjoy them with. It has scifi, romance,history and intrigue, everything you want in a good read. Highly recommend this book and the other 6 that follow.

          Comments about Outlander:

          This is the first in a wonderful series. I have read the lot three times and can't wait for the next book. Absolutely intriguing full of exciting, larger than life characters. The historical background is spot-on - full of romance - incredible plots and it's simply too breathtaking in scope to put down. Totally immersed in the whole set-up.

          "Absorbing and heartwarming...lavishly evokes the land and lore of Scotland."--"Publishers Weekly""Stunning!"--"Los Angeles Daily News""It is a large canvas that Gabaldon paints, filled with strong passions and derring-do. Strong willed and sensual, Claire is an engaging modern heroine plopped down in a simpler, more primitive time.... Great fun ...marvelous and fantastic adventures, romance, sex ...perfect escape reading!"--"San Francisco Chronicle"
