Admittedly, I’m a bit behind the times. I have just recently picked up the book, “Outlander”, by Diana Gabaldon. One of my daughters recommended it. The first few chapters were a little slow…
Then, the main character, Claire, steps back in time 2 centuries! We go from WWII Britain, back to the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie, and the clashes between clans; the clashes between Scots and Brits. The story gains momentum. There is action, love, small bits of humor. It becomes a complexity of characters and connectedness.
It’s history. It’s fantasy. It’s romance. It’s action. It’s not for the faint of heart, or the easily embarrassed. There also are hundreds of pages, a real tome! But, I thoroughly enjoyed it and, am halfway through the second book of the series! It too has grabbed, and held, my attention.
Check it out… “Outlander”, by Diana Gabaldon. It’s in the fiction stacks under GAB….
