Summary
#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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "While on her second honeymoon in Scotland just after World War II, Claire Randall returns alone to a nearby henge, an ancient circle of stones, to gather a plant specimen that interests her. (After spending the war as a nurse in France, she has taken up the housewifely hobby of plant pressing to please her husband, an Oxford don.) As she picks the plant, she accidentally touches one of the stones, and it screams. Suddenly, it's the year 1743, and she is in the war camp of Scottish insurgents, a battlefield nurse once more--or is she a witch? Whatever the case, Claire's life is in peril. Should she go back to the twentieth century or stay with the passionate James Fraser? This is escape fiction at its best, and Claire's decision won't surprise any reader with an adventurous soul. ~--Cynthia Ogorek"
