“Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon
My friend Karen tried to get me to read this book for years. I mean years and years. And I just couldn’t get into it. Tried a couple times. But then I was home sick for an extended period so decided to give it one more try. Well the timing was right. I couldn’t out it down. Swept me back to those romance novels I used to sneak off my mom’s bookshelf when I was a kid. But Outlander is way better cause you actually get some history too! So in honour of the tv series currently playing in Sunday nights, I had to mention Outlander (and the multitude of books in the series which I have yet to get through all of them but the show has me wanting to continue them now). Heard the author Diana Gabaldon at a book reading years ago. Can you imagine coming up with an idea and keeping that series going for almost 25 years now. Published in 1991.
Buy the book at you local bookstore.
