I'm really loving this story
The latest epic volume in the multimillion-copy bestselling Outlander series.
It is June 1778, and the world seems to be turning upside-down. The British Army is withdrawing from Philadelphia, with George Washington in pursuit, and for the first time, it looks as if the rebels might actually win. But for Claire Fraser and her family, there are even more tumultuous revolutions that have to be accommodated.
Her former husband, Jamie, has returned from the dead, demanding to know why in his absence she married his best friend, Lord John Grey. Lord John's son, the ninth Earl of Ellesmere, is no less shocked to discover that his real father is actually the newly resurrected Jamie Fraser, and Jamie's nephew Ian Murray discovers that his new-found cousin has an eye for the woman who has just agreed to marry him.
And while Claire is terrified that one of her husbands may be about to murder the other, in the 20th century her descendants face even more desperate turns of events. Her daughter Brianna is trying to protect her son from a vicious criminal with murder on his mind, while her husband Roger has disappeared into the past . . .

I have followed this series from the beginning, cannot wait for the next book.
Very impressed with the service.
Having read all 8 books in this series I am looking very much forward to a 9th book as we are left with a bit of a cliffhanger with regards to William, Jamie's son, and also the adventures of Brianna and Roger with their children upon returning to the past.
I have now read the 8 books in this series. I can't put them down once I start.

I found the whole series absolutely fantastic. I think Diana Gabaldon is a terrific writer and look forward to reading more of her work. I hope in the future a book will be written about William and what becomes of him. I felt his story was not finished. I liked all the central characters and especially "Claire and Jamies" story. Best thing I think I have ever read.
I have never enjoyed reading so much as I have reading this series of books. Would love for the story to continue!
I have already read the first seven books in this series and seen the first 3 seasons of the adaption. If you haven't read the books or seen the show then I wouldn't recommend purchasing this at random, you really need the background to follow it. I've thoroughly enjoyed this series and this book is shaping up to be as good as all the others! I only wish it didn't take so long for the TV series to be developed!
"Outlander" is the best series of books I have ever read. Amazing story.
