Why I Love ... Wednesdays is a meme hosted by Alexis over at reflections of a bookaholic. Each Wednesday is an opportunity to explore a different aspect of literature and why I love it. Today's topic: Favorite Series.
The truth of the matter is, I usually try to avoid series. I always end up frustrated while I wait for the next book to come out. Plus, I really do like my books to end and so many series leave the reader with a cliffhanger rather than an ending. I see the logic, I'm just not fond of it.
Haven't discovered this series, yet? Here's a bit about the first installment from goodreads:
The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is 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 stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
I don't think the blurb does it justice. I loved this book and the series, both.
