I am currently reading the first installment of the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. Not being the most patient of readers I normally wpuld put down a book if after 30 pages it does not grip me, but with Outlander I decided to percevere and I am glad that I did. This is an enthralling tale of love, medicine, and clan politics in mid 17th-century Scotland. The central female character, Claire Randall, has been swept back in time after walking innocently into a stone circle shortly after World War II. A former WWII nurse, Claire makes her way in the fierce world of the clans through her medical skills and her blossoming relationship with a tall, red-haired Highlander, James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser. By page 250, you will be in love with Jamie Fraser, too, mark my words! and will eagerly flicking through the pages. I just loved the history of this book also and I am thoroughly enjoying this book. Cant wait to read the next books.
