"I have read this, and read this, and read this some more"
5 stars"

The Outlander series is a commitment. You commit not only your time but your emotions and your expectations of future books. Diana Gabaldon is a master story teller and her books are best sellers and continually sold out for a reason; people cannot get enough. This follows the story of Claire and Jamie (and without revealing too much) and their journey and adventures through Scotland. You will genuinly fall in love with the characters and unlike most other books of this caliber, there are so many sequels you never have to leave them behind. And the sequels are just as well written, engaging and the best part: LONG!

The amount of research she puts into these books is enormous, I went and saw her speaking while she was in NZ and she is very intelligent and well spoken, which is reflected in the quality of her writing.

These books are amazing and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Description

In 1945, Claire Randall is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon in Scotland. Innocently she walks through a stone circle in the Highlands, and finds herself in a violent skirmish taking place in 1743. Suddenly she is a Sassenach, an outlander, in a country torn by war and by clan feuds. A wartime nurse, Claire can deal with the bloody wounds that face her. But it is harder to deal with the knowledge that she is in Jacobite Scotland and the carnage of Culloden is looming. Marooned amid the passion and violence, the superstition, the shifting allegiances and the fervent loyalties, Claire is in danger from Jacobites and Redcoats - and from the shock of her own desire for James Fraser, a gallant and courageous young Scots warrior. Jamie 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.

Accolades
