How do people find their favorite books?
There are countless ways, but here is how I found one of mine.
I was sipping a morning cup of tea and scrolling through Pinterest.
When I saw an Outlander pin and thought it looked readable, so I decided to put it on hold at the library.
Fast forward through the weekend, there are dishes and chaos everywhere but the book is finished, and I have an Outlander Obsessed pinterest board!
This book is Amazing!
What is also amazing is that it was written in 1991 and it is still attracting readers.
Here is a sum up of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.
Claire, an army nurse and lover of botanical herbs is the main character. She is on a second honeymoon with Frank, a professor and obsessed genealogist. They travel to the highlands in Scotland after WWII.
After watching a mysterious spectacle at Craigh Na Dune, Claire returns to the spot to gather a plant she saw there. Finding a magical portal, she travels through time to the 1700's.
Claire uses her skills as a nurse to aid an injured man after she is found in a desperate situation. This man, Jamie, will become the standard you will judge all others against, has secrets and a story of his own and befriends this Sassenach.
Forced to wed to save Claire from a dangerous madman, their relationship is tested and strengthened and will make you believe in a love that can transcend time.
Go and pick up a copy of Outlander . You will be so glad that you did.
The story is full of good writing, wit, suspense, romance, drama, violence, love, friendship, with a dash of history and herbal wisdom to top it off.
Sip a cup of Oolong Tea (pg. 31 ) and travel through time with Claire to the highlands of Scotland.
This book is a Must Read – then watch the mini-series that Starz has produced. 🙂
