Lord John's son, the ninth Earl of Ellesmere, is no less shocked to discover that his real father is actually the newly resurrected Jamie Fraser, and Jamie's nephew Ian Murray discovers that his new-found cousin has an eye for the woman who has just agreed to marry him. And while Claire is terrified that one of her husbands may be about to murder the other, in the 20th century her descendants face even more desperate turns of events.

Outlander (Cross Stitch)

Author: Diana Gabaldon Format: Paperback Release Date: 19/02/2015

Oh what an entertaining series this is, I have read each book as it has been published since the early 1990’s. Cross Stitch is the first in the series and sets the scene for Claire and Jamie’s meeting. This is historical fiction with just the tiniest winiest smidgeon of fantasy as Claire Randall steps through a stone circle in 1945 into the midst of a skirmish in 1743. Diana Gabaldon wields a mighty pen, combining a beautiful relationship story with bloody battles, political shenanigans and a somewhat brutal fight for survival. The Outlander series is now on TV, I highly recommend starting with the books, they are fabulous!  Books in The Outlander Series: 1. Outlander / Cross Stitch 2. Dragonfly in Amber 3. Voyager 4. Drums of Autumn 5. The Fiery Cross 6. A Breath of Snow and Ashes 7. An Echo in the Bone 8. Written in My Own Heart's Blood Serial Reader?
