From the Publisher
Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one
century, and a lover in another...
In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the
war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon-when she
innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles
that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach-an
"outlander"-in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in
the year of our Lord...1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire''s
destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and
the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into
the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and
shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots
warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that
Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and
between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
