Synopsis

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon
• An Outlander reader’s guide

Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another...

In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon—when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone 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's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning 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 passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

A MUST READ!!!!
November 4th, 2014
Started by watching the series of Outlander on STARZ and LOVED it so I had to get the book because I just couldn't wait till the next season to find out what happens and OMG, it's SO AWESOME!!! A definite must read!! I'm on to the next book in the series. Thank you for putting out such a wonderful, powerful book full of action, intrigue, love and romance like NO other. I've read A LOT of books and this is BY FAR one of the best series of books I have EVER had the honor to read.

Refreshingly Addictive
September 8th, 2014
Usually I stick mostly to classical books. They have a certain depth that can't be rivaled by the majority of modern day compositions. However, Outlander is an outstanding exception. When something can take you to another time & place in your own minds eye without you even having to try, it can truly be called a work of art. I literally could not put this work of art down which is evident in the fact that I read Outlander in its entirety in little under a month. (A great conquest for me considering my unrelentingly busy schedule) It was a great pleasure to read something that I found bliss in again & to associate with meaningful characters that put you through almost every aspect of the emotional spectrum! Rich in detail & imagination. Rich in emotion & intelligence. I recommend Outlander to all lovers of literature & I hope the Starz series will live up to it's greatness.

I really enjoyed the history and the mental images of Scotland. I could have done without as much romantic encounters.

At first, it took me a while to get into this book, but after a few chapters i was completely hooked. It's a good mix of Historical Fiction and Romance, but not the trashy novel kind. ;)

First this novel was a historical piece, then it was sci-fi, then it was romance, then action-adventure. For all the things "Outlander" is and can be at any given moment, on any given page, at any given sentence or word, it will always remain a masterpiece. Thank you, Diana Gabaldon. Thank you.
