I loved this book. It had been on my shelf to read forever and I kept shying away because its long and because every time I picked it up it didn’t capture my attention. So, I guess I wasn’t too enthralled with the beginning, but once I decided to read it and get past the first 20 pages, I was hooked. I loved the Scottish setting (and I really want to learn Scottish Gaelic now too). The 20th century woman (with bad language and attitude and all) transplanted into the rural 18th century provided so much to capture your attention. Plus, I was attached to Jamie from the very beginning of his character’s introduction. I’m looking forward to continuing this series.
