#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns 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.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide

Unbelievable!

This is not a plot synopsis, just an encouragement to treat yourself. I am not sure why this book is in the romance category...for though it does have romance, it is NOT a trashy smut book. It is just a wonderful slice of fiction, maybe more correctly historical fiction. I have recommended this series more times than I can count, and have been profusely thanked every time.
You will fall in love with Jamie and Claire, the clans of Scotland, and the fantastic way Diana makes you feel as though you are actually there witnessing it all. I envy the journey you are about to take. Enjoy!

Outlander

I’d started watching the show and loved it. But I knew the book would be a little different. I’ve been sucked in to the Outlander world and adore it. Diana Gabaldon is a wonderful writer. She give you a bit of everything and not once have I felt bored with it. Currently on the fifth book.
