Romance Book Club: Outlander
Time-travel stories that combine swashbuckling adventure, romance, and vivid historical details don't get any better than Gabaldon's now classic debut. Claire Randall and her husband Frank are taking their second honeymoon in Scotland when Claire stumbles across a mystical stone circle that whisks her back to the 18th century. There she meets the wounded clansman Jamie Fraser and unexpectedly finds shelter and even love while trying to find her way in a tumultuous historical time.
With vividly drawn, relatable characters and a respectful, loving eye for the history of the Scottish Highlands, Gabaldon's Outlander series launch is a lush, romantic epic. - Library Journal
