'Scotland's answer to Game of Thrones' HERALD
THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES, as seen on Amazon Prime
What if your future lay in the past?
1946, and Claire Randall goes to the Scottish Highlands with her husband Frank. It's a second honeymoon, a chance to re-establish their loving marriage. But one afternoon, Claire walks through a circle of standing stones and vanishes into 1743, where the first person she meets is a British army officer - her husband's six-times great-grandfather.
Unfortunately, Black Jack Randall is not the man his descendant is, and while trying to escape him, Claire falls into the hands of a gang of Scottish outlaws, and finds herself a Sassenach - an outlander - in danger from both Jacobites and Redcoats.
Marooned amid danger, passion and violence, her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.
With more than 20,000 5-star ratings on Amazon and 25 million copies sold worldwide, OUTLANDER is among the most popular book series of all time. Begin your journey into the Highland past here...

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Diana Gabaldon’s runaway bestseller is the first book in an exciting adventure romance series that spans centuries. While on vacation in Scotland in 1945, spirited former British Army nurse Claire Randall stumbles upon a stitch in time that leaves her stranded in the 18th century—among powerful highland clan leaders and merciless British Dragoons. Delving deeply into Scotland’s rich cultural history with colourful accounts of bygone martial arts, herbal medicines and local folklore, Gabaldon brings a startling realism to Claire’s action-packed journey. With raw emotion, tender humanity, humour, and fascinating historical detail, Outlander—now a TV series—explores perennial themes of love, honour and loyalty.
Time-traveler Claire Randall returns to 18th-century Scotland in this compulsively readable sequel to Outlander.
