Historical Romance Saturday with Diana Gabaldon

This is a new feature @ rather bare foot than bookless

In this feature we will highlight an Author and a book in the historical romance genre that we or one of us really like. But it is mostly about the book. It sort of like a recommendation of a really great read.

This week will be a little different from other weeks, because I haven´t actually read anything by this author BUT it was highly recommended to me by my little sister who has. Gabaldon has written a series about a woman who travels back in time to the 1700´s. She find love and is torn between to men and is part of many great adventures. Doesn´t this sound great? A little time traveling, romance in a historical environment, and adventures in a book with over 700 pages and that is not all! This is the first in a series of 8 books!

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is 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 stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives
