The Outlander series. Diana Gabaldon.  2005 to 2014. This is an  eight part series  in  the romantic historical fiction genre.  These book s, if done well require an enormous amount of work to write to retain some form of historical accuracy.  This author also chooses to write huge books, with good character development.  So much development that she writes other novels that insert between the main novels in the series.

While playing in the Aegean Sea over the last 18 days I plowed through the main 8 part series,  thank you Kindle.  Despite being at first glance  chick books the author writes a damn good tale and drives to lots of suspense. However she does not kill off any of her main characters, which makes the stores less gripping as you know they will be saved.

Interested ? Google for more detail on the stories. If nothing else you will improve your Gaelic. The present TV series grabs parts from  a few of the books.  Reading the books will spoil any surprise in the TV series.
