Outlander, Diana Gabaldon's landmark novel of Scottish lore has captured the hearts of millions of readers around the world and catapulted her to the top of the New York Times best-seller list. Intrigue, danger and desire merge in this lush novel of loyalty and time travel. In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon. Their blissful reunion is shattered when she touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone ruins and is instantly transported to a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans … in 1743. Will Claire find her way back to her own time, or is her destiny forever linked with Clan MacKenzie and the gallant James Fraser? Davina Porter's lyrical narration will launch listeners into an exhilarating world of heroism, pulse-pounding adventure, and breathtaking romance as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love.

They were odd circumstances, the ones that brought Claire Beauchamp and James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser together. She was married, a World War II army nurse, and at that, they were supposed to be on their second honeymoon. Sure, her husband Frank's history wasn't something that particularly interested Claire, but this was not supposed to be a trip for kindling a new romance... until strange things began to happen.

The men, the ones that found her in the field... they seem to think that her nightie is, well, a state of undress, and what's more, they're running from the English. It's only when she meets James that she realizes the truth: she's gone back in time, and the year is now 1743. She's taken to a high court and questioned: Who is she? Where does she come from?

Fortunately for Claire, although she's an 'outlander', someone ignorant of Scottish history, and a dreaded Englishwoman at that, she's a gifted healer. She's able to earn the trust of some of the villagers, and with them comes James, a dashing young man who Claire talks out of a wedding... but it appears her feelings are more than just general helpfulness.

As the audio book goes on, the questions grow: Will she be able to return home? What of her husband? And who is this mysterious stranger? Claire wonders, will she ever see Frank again? And more than that... if she doesn't, does she care?
