  • October 30: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Epic Battles! Romance! Humor! Pirates! History! Time-Travel!  Kilts!

Outlander has EVERYTHING!

In 1945, Claire is vacationing in Scotland with her husband, Frank. After being separated for the bulk of World War II they hardly know one another and the trip is an attempt to rekindle their love. Frank, indulging his interest in genealogy, spends his time researching local history and Claire wanders the landscape, studying the local flora. While exploring some standing stones, she finds herself miraculously transported into the middle of a battle in 1743.

Both the English – led by Frank’s villanous ancestor Jonathan Randall  and the Scots of the Clan Mackenzie think she might be a spy and her 20th Century sensibilities definitely make her stand out. Her knowledge and skills give her power, but as a woman out of place in time, she is at a distinct disadvantage.  

Will her actions in the past in some way affect the future? Could her mere presence alter the course of history? When presented with the opportunity to return, will she return to her husband or will she choose to stay with the Scottish outlaw she has grown to love?

Diana Gabaldon wrote Outlander, her first novel, in 1991. Since then the series has continued in six additional books, a graphic novel, and, in 2014, a television series. Her books are inevitably described as: addictive, evocative, and richly textured.

Check for available copies of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon at the Circulation Desk or on our catalog, where you can find the book, CD, and Playaway. It is also available through Digital Downloads in e-book format.

Please join us for our discussion on the October 30!
