Throwback Thursday – Memorable Book That Starts With the Letter ‘O’

For this throwback Thursday, I’m picking a memorable book that starts with the letter ‘O’.

This week I’m picking Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Diana Gabaldon is a master storyteller, and this is the book that started it all. I’ve absolutely adored every Outlander book I’ve read, and I’m slowly making my way through the series (next up is book #5!)

If you like historical fiction that is rich in detail and world building, check this series out. The size of the books are a bit intimidating, but I’ve found that they’re well-worth the time.

Description (From Goodreads): The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just 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 circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord…1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Let’s Talk!

  1. I love Outlander! Not just because of Jamie. Even though this book is massive, it is filled with a story that will leave you wanting more. Great choice for ‘O’. I have only read up to Voyager, I have yet to tackle Drums of Autumn. I hope to get to that before Season 4 of the TV comes out though!
