This is the first novel in the bestselling outlander series. It is now a major TV series. It was previously published as Cross Stitch. Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century - and a lover in another. In 1946, 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.

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.
