SPECIAL FOR THIS EDITION: THE RETURN OF JAMIE AND CLAIRE! A SNEAK PREVIEW OF THE NEXT OUTLANDER NOVEL, "A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES "Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another . . . In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon -- when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach -- an "outlander" -- in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord . . . 1743. Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny is inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, 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.
