Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another...
In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon—when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an "outlander"—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord...1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Great story but really long and a times it dragged but you had to keep reading to see how it will end. I won't read the next book in the series. I don't need to read any more about this couple.
This book was recommended to me last year and I was wasn't eager to start the series because it is so big! I was told that once I got past the first 150 pages I wouldn't be able to put it down and I am so happy I listened! I have read the whole series to date and they are all fabulous, but outlander is my favorite! It is so well written that it sets the bar for any other books for me! I think I have re read it about ten more times!! P.S. can't wait for the tv series in the fall!!!!
This was an amazingly romantic, sexy but historically interesting book. Absolutely captivating & addicting!! Well written.
