    In October 1886, Edgar Drake receives a strange request from the British War office: he must leave his wife and his quiet life in London to travel to the jungles of Burma, where a rare Erard grand piano is in need of repair. On his journey to Burma, Edgar encounters prophets and thieves, soldiers and tale-spinners, and an enchanting woman as elusive as the surgeon-major who owns the piano will turn out to be. Edgar encounters a place more mysterious and dangerous than he could ever have imagined.

    The artistry in writing style is so rich that you will find yourself listening to parts over and over again. It is a combination of history artfully presented with a perfectly executed fiction line colored with poetic writing. Absolutely wonderful; you won't be disappointed.

    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....

    Overall

    Delightful from the first sip... The character development moves you deeper and deeper into the novel. Unfortunately, you'll then want to read all of the remaining books in the series. I found them all exceptional.
