Waterstones Says

Bearing comparison to A Song of Ice and Fire and transformed into a hit TV show, Diana Gabaldon’s time-slip epic is an irresistible blend of adventure, romance and intrigue.

The original story behind the award-winning television series, this is the first novel in the bestselling Outlander sequence.

It wasn’t a very likely place for disappearances, at least at first glance…

What if your future was the past?

It’s 1946, and Claire Randall goes to the Scottish Highlands with her husband Frank. For the couple, separated by time and war, it’s a second honeymoon, a chance to learn how war has changed them and to re-establish their loving marriage.

But one afternoon, Claire walks through a circle of standing stones and vanishes into 1743, where the first person she meets is a British army officer - her husband's six-times great-grandfather. Unfortunately, Black Jack Randall is not the man his descendant is, and while trying to escape him, Claire falls into the hands of a gang of Scottish outlaws, and finds herself a Sassenach - an outlander - in danger from both Jacobites and Redcoats.

Marooned amid danger, passion and violence, her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

(Previously published in the UK as Cross Stitch).

"Scotland's answer to Game of Thrones". (Herald).

The Outlander Series in order: Outlander (originally published as Cross Stitch), Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, An Echo in the Bone, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone (forthcoming, date not yet known)

Diana Gabaldon is an American author best-known for her time-travelling historical-fantasy series, Outlander. Her other novels include the Lord John series (a sub-series of Outlander) and Seven Stones to Stand or Fall, a collection of Outlander short fiction.
