The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a veteran battlefield medic, has recently returned from the war and is on a second honeymoon with her husband when she passes 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 apart by conflict and warring border clans in the year of Our Lord, 1743.

Claire is thrown back in time by forces she doesn’t comprehend, thrusting her into the intrigues of lairds and spies that threaten her life and ruin her love. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scottish warrior, demonstrates his┬ádevotion in such a way that Claire becomes a woman divided between fidelity and desire, and between two profoundly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
