Outlander – Diana Gabaldon
Historical romance, time travel, fiction.
Claire was a combat nurse in the year 1945 and later retired from the war to be a wife to Frank. Frank and Claire are on a second honeymoon to the British Isles. Claire stands within some famous stones and then is thrown into the past when Scotland was being torn asunder in the year 1743. She doesn’t understand what happened other than time travel brought her here for a purpose. Claire runs into some bad people and then is rescued by Jamie. Jamie takes her along with him for her safety and protection during these warring times. Claire will have to figure out a way to get back to her time or let her heart keep her to stay in this time.
I had read this novel a long time ago and found it in my collection as I was trying to decide what I wanted to keep or donate. I loved this novel and I still love it presently. There is the historical fiction stance that I admire as well as the romance that buds between Claire and Jamie. I didn’t really care for Frank so I was excited to see that her heart warmed to Jamie. This was in fact a thick book and I forgot to complete the series so I am going to do my best to finish the series. There are so many books that continue her journeys. I love the descriptive writing and the plot that has so much depth. The characters as well. Can’t wait to find the rest of the series to get and read.
