Need Something To Read?

Are you looking for a new series to read? Then, let me help! The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. You may have heard of this series, but been reluctant to read it, because you think that it's just a romance. Well, you would be wrong. It is so much more than just a simple romance story. It is everything---time travel, history, adventure, intrigue, complex characters, and yes, an EPIC romance.

The basic story follows Claire, a young nurse during World War II, who goes on a belated honeymoon with her husband to Scotland. She accidentally stumbles into a standing stones circle where she travels back in time 200 years. She meets Jamie and, after a series of adventures, must decide to stay with him or go back to her own time. I guarantee, you will fall in love with Jamie and Claire!

The series consists of the following books:
