Publisher Comments:

Twenty years ago, Diana Gabaldon swept readers into her mesmerizing world brimming with history, romance, and adventure. In celebration of the series that has captured the heart of millions, here is a special 20th anniversary edition of the novel that started it all—including a new essay, a new map, a CD with Outlander the musical, and more.

 

OUTLANDER

 

The year is 1945. Claire Randall is traveling with her husband when she touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is hurled back in time to a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord 1743. Catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, she soon realizes that an alliance with James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, might be the only way to survive. Thus begins a work of unrivaled storytelling that has become a modern classic.

About the Author

Diana Gabaldon is the beloved author of seven New York Times bestselling novels in the series that began with Outlander, including Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and An Echo in the Bone.

OK. I don't read romance books, and this one is usually shelved in Romance. But my sister gave me a copy to read post-surgery and I was hooked. It is time travel, and takes place primarily during the Jacobite Uprising. Think of a WWII combat-weary, slightly feminist English army nurse being thrust into the 18th century when women were supposed to 'behave' and must be protected through male political maneuvering, fighting, and family connections. Needless to say, she doesn't behave and I found myself thinking of I Love Lucy bungling but with greater consequences. The book is peppered with historical lessons, language and facts, filled with political intrigue, humor, and yes romance (a bit too much for me - but I find myself quite fond of our hero, Jamie Frasier) and more. The characters are multi-dimensional, and you find yourself even caring about the villains, or at least having a modicum of sympathy for them. Few of Gabaldon's books are less than 650 pages, and this isn't one of the exceptions, but it is engaging and a relatively quick read. I have not had time to play the CD of "Outlander, the Musical" but it promises some fun.
