#AtoZchallenge: “O” is for Outlander (1991) by Diana Gabaldon

I have been reading and reviewing a good number of time travel books for children and young adults, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of fabulous time travel books for adults.


Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is one such book that I have yet to read. I keep reading reviews on GoodReads of friends who have read (or are reading) Outlander and its sequels, and what I’m hearing is that it’s a fabulous story.

Here’s part of the GoodReads summary of the book:

“The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon–when she walks through a standing stone 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 Highland clans in the year of Our Lord…1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life…and shatter her heart.”

There are seven books in the series and each one is at least 800 pages, so it’s definitely a hefty set of books. However, Scotland and time travel. I’ll take it!
