Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon is a fantastic book that manages to cross multiple genres.  The story is two parts historical fiction, one part fantasy, one part romance with a generous dollop of action/adventure.  The author deftly weaves the multiple facets of this story into a lively romp through time as the heroine, Claire Du Champ is hurtled from 1946  to 1743 in the Scottish highlands.  The author’s astute sense of humor and intelligent research are counter-balanced with graphic imagery of romance and violence.  Outlander is such an entertaining read that it is difficult to put down!  Highly recommended.

  1. Surprised you haven’t discovered the “Outlander” series before now. There are at least 6 sequels plus several spin-offs and the latest promise of a TV series called “Outlander” The books are always exciting and I’m looking forward to her latest episode.
