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.

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!
This series has it all. Romance, history, adventure, mystery and humor and so much more.
Love love love this series!
This is such an incredibly well written historical romance series. It has it all!
