    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    I had stopped with the series after Drums because of the reviews on the abridged version of The Fiery Cross. I decided to try again a couple of weeks ago and found that the abridged version had become unavailable. Checked back today and you can imagine how wonderful it was to see the book recorded not only in an unabridged version but also narrated by Davina Porter. All I can say is that it is about time!

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    This book is not as good as the first three but trying to figure out who was who was even worse. The voices for the different characters were not the same as well as the way some of their names were pronounced. What was the publisher thinking when they allowed this huge flaw!

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    Yes, I realize that this is historical fiction but these books give you a little glimpse of what 18th century life was like for women. Adventure without packing and a mindless afternoon while sitting by the ocean - what could be better.

    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

    I really enjoyed this interesting look into the Scottish Clans and their demise. Loved the narrative with the proper Gaelic pronunication. I am now listening to the second book in the series. I would recommend this book as a romantic historical novel that brings real character to the fate of the Scots.

  • Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Fight Terrorism and Build Nations

    In 1993 Greg Mortenson was the exhausted survivor of a failed attempt to ascend K2, an American climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan's Karakoram Himalaya. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of an impoverished Pakistani village, Mortenson promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time: Greg Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.

    I tried six times to listen to this book, I even tried to read it. Each time I fell fast asleep.
