I'm at the sixth book and its just wonderful
its like chocolate loll
OUTRAGEOUS
I have re-read these books over and over. I have 'hosed' 2 nieces and a friend. I am totally in-love with Jamie Fraser 'sighs'

This is easily my favorite book, ever. I can't wait for 'Echo..." to hit the stands.

I learned about love a lot with Jamie and Claire. Now I know how love is supposed to look like and to feel like. Not going to settle for less, ever again.

Best chapter (all chapters are amazing)is the wedding night 'sighing again'... and the most/heart wrenching chapter is when Jamie tells Claire abt his ordeal in the dungeons at the hands of Black Jack Randall...crying

If you like this book, you need to read the Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning. They are addicted. You won't know till you try.

I have read the whole series and have never been disappointed. Although the love story of Jamie Fraser and Claire as the "meat" of the story, I find that the political and historical aspects just as compelling. Loved this series and read it time after time.
OUTRAGEOUS
Yesssss. Claire couldn't have landed in a more convoluted era but the XVIII Century... I mean, the French revolution, the two Stuart risings, the American Revolution...they get to be part of history in the making, and being Jamie he couldn't NOT be a part of it.

I have read the spin-off's as well... the Lord John Gray novels...these are amazing, and you get to see a side of Lord John that's so funny and real...not just his <gay> love and attraction for Jamie, but how unhappy he's been, and how hard is has been on him, to be able to love and be loved in return...Fantastic!

Storyline

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES
 
Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.
 
OUTLANDER
 
Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.
 
Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.
