Diana Gabaldon Collection 6 Books Set Outlander Series - Adult - Paperback
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.

Renowned Author
Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling Outlander novels. So if you’re a fan of the hit Netflix TV series but haven’t gotten around to reading the books just yet, you’re definitely missing out! From page to screen, these graphic and compelling novels follow a former British combat nurse, Claire Randall, who has returned from the war.
Set in the 18th and 20th centuries, the six books have been exceptionally written to portray the views of Claire and James as they experience romance and adventures as a dynamic duo which soon turns into a trio. Readers will learn about Claire’s mysterious, double life that she leads where she has a devoted husband in one century but a relationship of infidelity in another. In the early books, we can see Claire’s marriage to husband Frank has broken down, as an impacting result of the second world war – and they are both committed to rebuilding this on a second romantic honeymoon. Or so it seems.
The novels are centred around Claire first and foremost, as she is faced with an unexpected visit to a forbidden place, Castle Leoch where she becomes trapped. Readers will find themselves going to and fro the 200-year gap in centuries as they read the novels from Claire’s perspective. Claire tries to escape a few times, like during the busy Gathering at the castle, but sadly never succeeds. Before she knows it, lairds and spies begin to threaten her life but also shatter her heart. It’s during this, she meets the protagonist James Fraser – a young Scottish warrior who whisks her off her feet with passionate romance and they embark on a sinful relationship. Claire finds herself tragically torn between two men who couldn’t be more different than one another, and she faces a battle of her own.
1946, and Claire Randall goes to the Scottish Highlands with her husband Frank. It’s a second honeymoon, a chance to learn how war has changed them and to re-establish their loving marriage. But one afternoon, Claire walks through a circle of standing stones and vanishes into 1743, where the first person she meets is a British army officer
