after she fell victim to a play ‘accident’. 

I just hoped it would be required after

autumn rains had softened the ground.

It wasn’t until our Vet assured us they

wouldn’t hurt each other that I relaxed. 

I also noted that there were small white teeth

giving almost as good as they received.

Recently I realised that none

of my Outlander reviews appear

to have been published on WoollyMuses.

Prepare to be inundated by Outlander reviews

Outlander #1


Diana Gabaldon


Aug 29, 2016

The Outlander series is based on a doctor (Claire Randall) finding a portal for time travel back to the mid 1700s.  Although married in the twentieth century.  To save her life she has to marry (again) in the eighteenth century.  From there on the book, and the series, proceeds.


This is the second of the series I have read.  I have read books #4, #1 and currently reading book #2 of the series and still enjoying the story lines.

However, if you are not interested in eighteenth century Scotland, France or America you may not find these books enjoyable.

I read Drums of Autumn, number four in the series and enjoyed it as a standalone novel.  The second book is also providing enough background information to be read on its own also.

And that is probably my only grumble…that I am reading some information that I read in previous books.  That aside, I do hope that I will not put the series aside before all books are read.
