My cover is different to this but lack of time kept me from going looking for the cover I wanted! My first experience into the realm of time travel - but this is not just a paranormal/fantasy story - not at all. It is historical fiction at its best delving into the 1700's going back 200 years from where Claire is at present.
The story starts in the Highlands with Claire and her husband Frank in the midst of a relaxing holiday having survived WWII (as a nurse) and enjoying an almost second honeymoon (after eight years of marriage).
Touching a stone in a circle (something similar to Stonehenge) almost by accident she is thrown into the 1700's into a world so removed from her own that she is worried for her sanity and also her survival. Taken into custody as an English spy it the story adds another twist in the tale as it reveals the entire story of Randall who is her 20th century husband's actual ancestor!
Plenty of violence, plenty of drama, the harshness of life in society in primitive times and oh plenty of passion and scenes of explicit sex (maybe a bit too much at times) but on the other hand very real to show the deep abiding love of Claire and Jamie! Wont add any more spoilers to this story. You have got to read this to believe this.
For someone who was rather disdainful of the paranormal this was a wonderful read. Loved the book.
