Staff Reviews


Outlander is a wonderful book that cannot be identified by one genre. It is romance, fantasy, and historical fiction all wrapped into one amazing story. This book has characters you love, and some you love to hate. Claire, a strong independent woman, time travels into the 18th century and smack into the jacobite rebellion where she falls in love with a tall red headed scottsman, Jamie Fraser and runs afoul of the treacherous Black Jack Randall. It is also well researched and full of interesting facts about 18th century life, medicine, crime and punishment. One of my favorite books of all time.
