Description



About the Book



Hurtled back through time more than two hundred years to 1743 Scotland, Claire Randall finds herself caught in the midst of an unfamiliar world torn apart by violence, pestilence, and revolution and haunted by her growing feelings for a young soldier, James Fraser.



Book Synopsis



#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The first book in Diana Gabaldon's acclaimed Outlander saga, the basis for the Starz original series. Don't miss the new Outlander novel, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone, available November 23!

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS's The Great American Read!

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon's work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

I LOVE this book after binge watching the show on Netflix. My only complaint is that this mass market paperback is so small, it's frustrating to hold the book open to read. If I had it to do over again, I would've bought the more expensive version that wouldn't be as compact.

Great book! I love the time periods it takes place in. The characters really come to life and Gabaldon paints a really beautiful picture of the settings. This is a book you can easily lose yourself in. You won't even notice you're in the 21st Century sitting in bed reading.
