kept at it and don't regret it
on November 4, 2015
this book took me ages to get into. I'm not sure if it was the length or what, but I have now finished! I'm watching series 1 at the same time as reading - albeit this is book 2 - , and I think for this the characters seemed so much more alive. What would have helped was having a knowledge of the Jacobites and Scottish history before I started reading as there is a lot of historical reference. Overall though I enjoyed the book and will continue with the others, but will allow myself more time to read a good chunk instead of a few pages here and there, because once I had the time to just sit and read, the book/store was much improved for me.
Story line then is how Claire now older, widowed, with a daughter and back in current day, tells the story of here days with Jamie before finally being sent back to the future.
