I loved this book, it is truly a romantic tale. Since it was revealed at the end of the last book that Jamie could still be alive in the past, the beginning of the book goes back and forth between the present and the past showing what both Claire and Jamie are up to. Claire has a hard decision to make, leave her daughter and attempt to find Jamie or stay with Brianna.
There are currently seven books in the Outlander series and book eight is expected early in 2013. These books are all considerate historical fiction, but they also include plenty of romance. The story is told in a first person narrative by the main protagonist, a English woman, Clare, who has time traveled in Scotland to just over 200 years into the past.
Needless to say, she decides to attempt to go back and find Jamie and due to research she is fairly certain where to find him. It is a very brave thing for her to do since it has been 22 years since she last saw him and anything could have happened in that time. It is really touching the nervousness she has when they first meet again. I could really relate to Claire’s insecurities surrounding this event.
There are many touching scenes between the two as well as some sexy ones as well. The story moves around over the globe covering many advertures by the couple and with trouble following Jamie around it leaves room for lots of excitement. We learn more about how the stones work and there is some interesting parts concerning mystism. Claire is also a doctor now which makes her ability to help people in the past even greater than in the first book.
The ending is quite thrilling with an interesting twist that leaves you wanting more.
