Read of the Month

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Tuesday, July 21st at 7 pm

Hosted by Rebecca R.


Absorbing and heartwarming, this novel lavishly evokes the land and lore of Scotland, quickening both with realistic characters and a feisty, likable heroine. English nurse Claire Beauchamp Randall and husband Frank take a second honeymoon in the Scottish Highlands in 1945. When Claire walks through a cleft stone in an ancient henge, she's somehow transported to 1743. She encounters Frank's evil ancestor, British captain Jonathan "Black Jack" Randall, and is adopted by another clan. Amid her new surroundings and the terrors she faces, she is lured into love and passion like she's never known before.
I was lame and sore in every muscle when I woke next morning. I shuffled to the privy closet, then to the wash basin. My innards felt like churned butter. It felt as though I had been beaten with a blunt object, I reflected, then thought that that was very near the truth. The blunt object in question was visible as I came back to bed, looking now relatively harmless. Its possessor [Jamie] woke as I sat next to him, and examined me with something that looked very much like male smugness."

Scenes of the Highlanders' daily life blend poignant emotions with Scottish wit and humor.  Claire and Jamie see each other through many perilous, swashbuckling adventures involving Black Jack. Eventually Sassenach (outlander) Claire finds a chance to return to 1945 and must choose between distant memories of Frank and her happy, uncomplicated existence with Jamie. Gabaldon creates characters that you'll remember, laugh with, cry with, and cheer for long after you've finished the book.
