This is The First Novel In The Bestselling Ooutlander Series. Now a major TV series. What if your future was the past? 1946, and Claire Randall goes to the Scottish Highlands with her husband Frank. It's a second honeymoon, a chance to learn how war has changed them and to re-establish their loving marriage. But one afternoon, Claire walks through a circle of standing stones and vanishes into 1743, where the first person she meets is a British army officer - her husband's six-times great-grandfather. Unfortunately, Black Jack Randall is not the man his descendant is, and while trying to escape him, Claire falls into the hands of a gang of Scottish outlaws, and finds herself a Sassenach - an outlander - in danger from both Jacobites and Redcoats. Marooned amid danger, passion and violence, 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. (Previously published as Cross Stitch).
Outlander is a must read for all romantics and adventurers, for those that believe in time travel, witches, magic, fate and destiny. For all who continue to search for true love and for those lucky enough to have found it in this life time this is the book for you. Well written and compelling so don't let the size of the book intimidate you for it will end too soon and leave you hungry for the next book!

A highly creative novel by an immensely talented author. Well researched historical details and data, befitting a scientist of course. Focuses on the ethical and moral development of the characters, bringing them to life to a remarkable degree. The reader is transported back in time, sharing their adventures almost voyeuristically. A remarkable book as well as all her other volumes in the saga of Claire and Jamie.

Outlander Made Easy
If you've seen the Outlander previews on Starz and want to know more about the book series, Diana Gabaldon's brilliant tales of Jaime and Claire start with Outlander. The audio makes all those difficult accents and unfamiliar words a breeze.
I love the fact the audio is unabridged. Even then, I don't want it to end.
