Why did I love this book?
If you’ve never heard of Outlander, then my friend, you must’ve been hiding under a rock for the last twenty years. Author Diana Gabaldon weaves an incredible time travel love story that spans three hundred years, with a proposed ten-book series. Filled with mouth-watering descriptions and unforgettable characters, the story begins post-World War Two, as protagonist Claire Randall falls through an ancient standing stone she discovers while vacationing with her husband in Scotland. Unaware that she has arrived in the eighteenth century, Claire is caught in a web of treachery between the Scots and English, and somehow must survive to get back to the standing stone and return home to her century. What Claire doesn’t count on is falling in love with young Scotsman Jamie Fraser, who will do everything in his power to keep her safe, and keep his word to not only his clan, but to her.
