Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British 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 clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide

  • Outlander review

    By TancyGA
    Beautifully written love story. Just a bit too long for my tastes. I didn’t like the violent sex scene, and that is why I didn’t give it 5 stars.
  • Outstanding!!

  • Trigger Warning

    By Sorceress Sarah
    It’s a well written and thought out book but it goes too far. I stopped reading after a character was forgiven for spousal abuse. I tried to watch the show and stopped after the rape of a child scene. Too much.
  • Amazing

    By Raycoolbot
    Truly enjoyed this book.
  • Outlander

    By Mia Rivers
    I’d started watching the show and loved it. But I knew the book would be a little different. I’ve been sucked in to the Outlander world and adore it. Diana Gabaldon is a wonderful writer. She give you a bit of everything and not once have I felt bored with it. Currently on the fifth book.
  • The series is better

    By TinkleMunda
    If you are wanting more details after watching Outlander on STARZ then this is for you!! But honestly for me, I was looking for detailed sex scenes that absolutely did not happen in this book. While watching the steamy scenes in here he series, I could only imagine what would happen in the book BUTTTT that was exactly opposite!! The book leaves you hanging as far as details of the sex .. just watch the series and you will save your money!!
  • Beautiful story of Love and Triumph !
