She has a husband in one century - and a lover in another. 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.Read Less

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.

Outlander - Awesome Series!
One of the best books I've read in a long time! So glad it's a series of 7 books (8th one coming out soon!)
I love time travel love stories and this is one of the better ones!

A Step Back in Time
As the first in a great series, Outlander embodies not only great writing, but historical accuracy...a rare combination. As you read the series you become invested in the characters and what is happening in their lives. A more than enjoyable read and one of those books it's hard to put down.
