Voyager (Outlander #3), by Diana Gabaldon
Barnes & Noble
Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her... and her body still cries out for him in her dreams.
Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and pain awaiting her...the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland... and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite—or forever doom—her timeless love.
I must have read this one too quickly because I had all sorts of "wait, what just happened?" moments. I was so keyed up and wanted to know exactly what happened next that I didn't let everything sink in. Big mistake. I'll need to do a re-read of this book at some point. Assuming I ever get through my TBR list, of course!
I do need to take a break before delving into Drums of Autumn. I love the world that Gabaldon has created, but I need to read something short before I read another of her tomes.
