6th in the Öutlander series about 20th century time traveler, Claire Fraser, and her life with 16th century Scottish Highlander, James Fraser, this time in America just before the Civil War. Excellent, though lacks some of the freshness of earlier books in the series.

Fantastic! As good as Grisham any day. I could not put it down. The characters are larger than life and, at the same time, believable. The writing is exciting and the violent scenes ,while graphic, are not gratuitous. A really great book.
