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 in soon 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.

    I had originally fallen in love with the first season of this show so I skipped the first book and started reading dragonfly in amber. I read through all the books in a matter of a few weeks because I just couldn’t put it down. During this droughtlander I decided to go back and read the first one. I am so happy I did there always so much more detail in books and I loved a few of the scenes in the book much better then the show. I highly recommend reading the series.

    OMG!!!!!!! Is 12:52 am Monday the 28th of October and I just finish the 1 book,and will have to go to bed now since I have to get up in about 6 hours but it was worth it, a few weeks back my coworker who is reading the 4th book, lend me her copy of the first in paper back and since, don't like paper backs was reluctant to read it but I did and it took me a while to get started in about when she get to the castle I had to get my own copy and decided on the iBook version and it was worth it and it took me this weekend to finish the first in its entirety because I couldn't put it down of course I took restroom break and ate and sleep some for the most part I could not put down and will start this morning on the second at my lunch break at work. Don't give up on these books the are long but worth the story.

    I began the Outlander series as a way of understanding my partners fascination with the relationship between Jamie and Claire. After reading a few chapters I saw why she loved the book so much. While we both come from Scottish roots, Wallace and Davison, it was easy to fall into character and escape the days stressors with a distant adventure. I press upon book 2 with vigor and an eye for more.
