Outlander - Diana Gabaldon

A few weeks ago, 
a mate of mine
posted a lovely picture of
Sam Heughan
with the comment that he's
unofficially,
been signed to play
Jamie Fraser.

Jamie who?
Exactly my thoughts.

Then I was told he was a character
from Diana Gabaldon's
Outlander series.

So, of course,
I had to read the book.

Let me say, 
I am very thankful I read this while at the cottage,
because it is 
long!

Claire Randal
is a former nurse,
living in 1945.
She is reunited with her husband,
after 6 months apart,
due to the war,
and they are enjoying a second honeymoon.

One day she is shown some
ancient stone circles.
Her husband is fascinated 
as he heard there is a covent
that gathers there.
So they go one morning to watch.
Claire sees a plant she's interested it.
Frank, her husband,
wants her to see if there's any signs
of a fire.

As she walks around the stones,
she hears screaming.
She then finds herself
an "outlander"
in war torn Scotland
in 1743!

Is she a witch?
Is she an English spy?
Claire is confused and wants to go back home.
And then she meets Jamie Fraser.
Circumstances force her to marry him.
But she grows to care and love him.
Will she find her way back to her time and Frank?
Or will Jamie be the one to capture her heart?
