“THE OUTLANDER deserves to be read twice, first for the plot and the complex characters which make this a page-turner of the highest order, and then a second time, slowly, to savor the marvel of Gil Adamson’s writing. This novel is a true wonder.” (Ann Patchett)
“This remarkable novel opens at full gallop and never slows. Adamson has seamlessly merged a compelling narrative with poetic language to create a work that is full of beauty and heart and wonder.” (Ron Rash, author of SAINTS AT THE RIVER and SERENA)
“A remarkable first novel, full of verve, beautifully written, and with all the panache of a great adventure.” (Michael Ondaatje)

Things that I liked about the book:
-strong images via tight writing which flowed nicely
-awesome time and setting of the story
Things I did not like:
-The main character being referred to simply as the "widow" instead of by her name. That actually really irritated me.
-Nothing exciting happening the entire time I read. The murder happened before the book's opening, but all we see is her running from her pursuers. She doesn't struggle. She doesn't think about what's happened. As a reader, I felt completely in the dark and it ruined immersion for me.
-It was difficult for me to keep going for the reasons mentioned above, so I stopped. I don't feel good about this. I like to give every book its fair shake. But this is one of few books that I just couldn't make it through.
*The thing about writing reviews is that it can sway people from buying/not buying a book. I'm not saying these things to keep anyone from purchasing it. It just wasn't for me. I like stories that captivate me from the beginning and never let me go. What I read was just lines upon lines of bla bla she's running away. There is nothing mentioned about why she killed her husband. No EMOTION shown of her lamenting the loss of him and that relationship. And how did his brothers know it was her? Without a clue is how this story left me. But a lot of other reviewers seemed to like it so perhaps its just me. Best wishes to the author for much success in writing anyway.

Very descriptive however the plot wanders and at times is unclear.
