Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now a STARZ original series.

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 Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former 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 border clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire — and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Review:

"History comes deliciously alive on the page." New York Daily News

Review:

"Gabaldon is a born storyteller....The pages practically turn themselves." The Arizona Republic

Review:

"Triumphant...Her use of historical detail and a truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." Publishers Weekly

Glynis, January 12, 2015 (view all comments by Glynis)
Outlander is a fast-paced and enticing novel. The story transports the reader between 1945 and 1743 Scotland, making it immediately engaging for anyone with a passion for history or an appreciation for Scottish culture. The feminine protagonist is strong, intelligent, and a respectable heroine. The cast of characters, conflict between the English and the
Scottish, druid folklore, and romance can entertain nearly any reader.
