While on her second honeymoon in the British Isles, Claire touches a boulder that hurls her back in time to the forbidden Castle Leoch with the MacKenzie clan. Not understanding the forces that brought her there, she becomes ensnared in life-threatening situations with a Scots warrior named James Fraser. But it isn't all spies and drudgery that she must endure. For amid her new surroundings and the terrors she faces, she is lured into love and passion like she's never known before.
I was lame and sore in every muscle when I woke next morning. I shuffled to the privy closet, then to the wash basin. My innards felt like churned butter. It felt as though I had been beaten with a blunt object, I reflected, then thought that that was very near the truth. The blunt object in question was visible as I came back to bed, looking now relatively harmless. Its possessor [Jamie] woke as I sat next to him, and examined me with something that looked very much like male smugness."Gabaldon creates characters that you'll remember, laugh with, cry with, and cheer for long after you've finished the book. --Candy Paape --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
The characters are well developed and the story well written.
Diana Gabaldon is a wonderful storyteller and brings her characters to life through her attention to historical detail and writing style.
I started reading her years ago when she only had the first few books in the series... I could NOT put the books DOWN!

Other than the time travel, it is just another bodice-ripper. Barbara Cartland could do as well. If you liked 50 Shades of Grey, I assume this would please you.Published 8 hours ago by Paulrbuzz
Though I really don't care for stories of fantasy, I reluctantly decided to dead this after several friends mentioned it with such enthusiasm. They were right. Read morePublished 10 hours ago by smk
