Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Product DetailsOutlander by Diana Gabaldon, 850 pages

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British 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 clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.
Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

I've never been a fan of historical fiction so when more than 3 people recommended it to me AND I was in need of something new to read, I thought, what the heck? I work at a library...if I hate it, I'll take it back tomorrow and find something else. 
Sometimes trying new things isn't awful...it's awesome AND addicting. The 800 page book was read in 4 days and some sleep was lost but I was so eager to see what happened next! Highly recommend!
