I started this book the moment I finished book two, and until about two-thirds of the way through it, I felt quite obsessed with it, remaining n one of those odd "thinking about the book in every waking moment and then dreaming about it" moods that I find my favourite books always give me.

The first third of this novel has a far more complex structure than its predecessors. The chapters alternate between the 1960s, as Claire, Brianna, and Roger try to find out what happened to Jamie after he seemingly survived Culloden; flashbacks to Claire's life over the last twenty years; and chapters from Jamie's life over the same period of time, two hundred years in the past.

I love time-travel stories when they make your head spin, and this achieved it in a way that earlier books in the series didn't quite manage. I loved having the researchers in 1968 find something out about Jamie's life from a dry document, then getting to see the emotional reality of it through his eyes. This is particularly strong where things have passed into folklore. I'm always fascinated bye the idea of the difference between historical myth and reality, and there are some wonderful examples of it here: prepare to laugh at the story of how the place called Leap o'the Cask got it's name - and then to cry at the brutal reality.

I definitely saw the first book and to a lesser extent the second book as being primarily romance novels, even though many fans tend to argue against this. In this instalment, however, I felt that while the romance between Claire and Jamie was still the heart and soul of the book, the genres were genuinely much more blurred. It's certainly a brave romance novelist that keeps her lovers completely and utterly apart for the first third of a thousand page novel.

By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Nov. 2002
Format: Paperback
The third in a series of exceptionally well written time travel, adventure/romance books by the author, it tells a gripping and highly entertaining tale. There are five such novels published to date in what is hoped to be a series of six books. I urge the interested reader to start at the beginning and read each and every one. Do not be daunted by the length. Trust me when I say that you will wish that they were longer, so riveting a story does the author unfold. A masterful storyteller, the author employs the superlative use of historical events and period detail to weave an engaging three dimensional tapestry of timeless love and adventure. While the core of the story is about a love that transcends time, it is, however, much more than that. It is an adventure story that grips the reader from beginning to end and is positively addictive!
The love that spans time is that which twentieth century Englishwoman, Claire Randall, has for eighteenth century Scottish highlands warrior, James Fraser. Those readers who have read the first book in the series, "Outlander", know that in 1945, Claire, a combat nurse during World War II, is reunited with her husband, Frank, after the war. While on a second honeymoon in Scotland, she visits a strange, flat topped hill, where a forbidding stone circle draws her. Touching one of the stones, she is hurled through a vortex in time and finds herself in eighteenth century Scotland, where she meets a brave and brawny, red headed Scot, James Fraser, with whom she falls head over heels in love. Finding herself thrust into the midst of clan warfare and intrigue, she and her beloved 'Jamie' have enough adventures to last a lifetime.

The 3rd in the series, and still I can't get enough! My heart beat with Claire's as she's walking into Carfax Close, my tears fall with hers and Jamie's as they look-together-at Bree's pictures, my heart and my body ache as they reunite... and as much as 20 years can change a person, it seems at least for these 2 characters, they are still the same. I cried tears of joy when Fergus drops to his knees, and she realizes who it is, and how , even though he's 20 years older, he is still the same to her. Travel, more adventure than I thought possible, Great Joy and Deep Sadness... what can I say? Diana, you did it again! A definite must have for Gabaldon fans. Thanks for letting me share my opinion.

When I picked up this book, I was somewhat daunted by it's size-1059 pages, to be exact. However, within the first ten pages, I was totally hooked. I shan't say too much about the plot, as other reviews here have done that admirably, but it tells the story of two people from different times-twentieth century surgeon Claire, and eighteenth century Jamie, Laird of Lallybroch, against the background of the failed uprising that ended in blood and tears at Culloden.Diana Gabaldon manages to convey with both realism and sensitivity the consuming love that has shaped both their lives, through twenty years of seperation and oppression. It is not the fantasy love of mills and Boon, it is real, warts and all,with all the constraints and disappointments of real life, and so powerful that neither is complete without the other. Throughout all the twists and turns of the plot, the reader is left in no doubt of the overwhelming rightness of their being together throughout their trials and tribulations.

This is one of the most beautifully written and well researched historicals I have ever read-Diana Gabaldon is educated to Phd level, and it shows in the clear narrative,the wealth of period detail, her evocative love scenes and mastery of a complex story line. You won't, as I too often find in sloppy regencies, find Jamie saying 'gotten' or 'atop' or any of the other lapses to be found time and again in so many historical romances. Her characterisation is excellent;she manages to convey a range of complex characters with all the cultural references and the spirit of their time.This book is both a painstaking, well researched historical novel, and a wonderful, moving love story. Definitely a keeper for me.
