Outlander just came back for season 4 in November. And because I love the books and the TV show, I have a problem. So Why “Fix” it? You know the saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” Well, I kind of feel like that’s what’s happened with the TV show. The first two seasons […]

It began at an ancient Scottish stone circle. There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past – or the grave. Dr. Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once but twice. Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became a […]
I finally finished Voyager by Diana Gabaldon. It seemed to take forever, but from what I can figure it took me just over two weeks to read it from cover to cover. That’s got to be some kind of record for me.
Well, I finally finished Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon, the sequel to Outlander. In 1968, twenty years after she went back in time, Claire Randall finally decides to tell her secret.
