THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING Outlander SERIES - now a major new TV series.
For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to the majesty of Scotland's mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones, about a love that transcends the boundaries of time, and about James Fraser, a warrior whose gallantry once drew the young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.
Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful daughter as Claire's spellbinding journey continues in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Edward Stuart, in a race to thwart a doomed uprising, and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.
Love this series lost count on how many times Ive read it.

About the Author
Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-Bestselling Outlander novels, described by Salon magazine as the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting Scrooge McDuck comics.
The adventure began in 1991 with the classic Outlander (historical fiction with a Moebius twist), has continued through seven more New York Times-bestselling novels, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes , An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart's Blood, with more than twenty-six million copies in print worldwide.
The series is published in 26 countries and 23 languages, and includes a nonfiction (well, relatively) companion volume, The Outlandish Companion, which provides details on the settings, background, characters, research, and writing of the first novels in the series. Gabaldon (it's pronounced GAA-bull-dohn, rhymes with stone) has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character from the main series): Lord John and The Private Matter, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, Lord John And The Brotherhood Of The Blade, and The Scottish Prisoner.
Returning to her comic-book roots, she has also written a graphic novel titled The Exile (set within the Outlander universe and featuring the main characters from Outlander), but told from the viewpoint of Jamie Fraser and his godfather, Murtagh. The graphic novel is illustrated by Hoang Nguyen, and published by Del-Rey.
The eighth and most recent major novel in the Outlander series, Written in My Own Heart's Blood, made its debut as number one on the New York Times bestseller list.
Diana's current writing projects include the ninth major novel in the Outlanderseries, as yet untitled, and a second volume of The Outlandish Companion. She is also serving as a co-producer and advisor for the Outlander TV series produced by the Starz network and Tall Ship Productions, which is based on her novels.
Diana and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.
