I’m probably late to the party but I am just discovering Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.  Actually I’m not reading the book. I’m not a historical fiction gal but I started it a while ago since it was a best seller and I kept seeing it on the reading lists. But I just couldn’t get into it.  You know how it is. Life is too short to read books you don’t like. But then I rented the tv series from our library. Oh my! Not only am I binge watching it  my husband had to catch up when I watched an episode this morning without him.

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.


It’s a romance, it’s adventure….and I can’t wait for the next episode!



  1. Haha! I discovered "Outlander" at least 25 years ago and have read most of the series ~ more than once; but them I'm Scottish through and through. I love the tv series too, and I highly recommend it. My husband watches too. I'm glad that you and Don are enjoying it, Peggy!
