That was me when I started reading The Outlander--spellbound.
Good thing I'm not a genre snob or I would not have ever picked up The Outlander. I'm not into fantasy or romance. My favorite genres are historical fiction and mystery/thrillers/suspense and all of the sub-genres including legal, young adult and children's but when you get right down to it I'll read just about anything.
The Outlander just reached out and grabbed me and wouldn't let go. It had everything; action, adventure, compassion, family, loyalty, devotion, courage, triumph and tragedy and of course love. I was so disappointed when I completed the series (In record time I might add.).
That was it? No More?
Well now I, and millions of others, can rejoice. Diana Gabaldon is releasing another in her brilliant series in June of this year. It can be pre-ordered at Amazon now.
In her now classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon told the story of Claire Randall, an English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone circle in the Scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears . . . into 1743. The story unfolded from there in seven bestselling novels, and CNN has called it “a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries].” Now the story continues in Written in My Own Heart’s Blood.About the Author
