    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    This is a long book -- but it holds your interest the whole time. It is filled with romance, adventure, and a little lust here and there


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is fun to consider the differences in the two time periods. The many characters were all so well developed and unique


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    I generally prefer to listen to women's voices


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book is too long for one sitting -- but great for listening to while doing long boring chores

    have listened to multiple times -- more fun each time.

    If you could sum up Gone with the Wind in three words, what would they be?

    So much more than the movie.

    Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.
