As many of you know, Outlander is my favorite book series ever. I started reading the first book in 1991 when it was released. In the fall of 2014, Starz started airing a TV series based on the books. So far it is one book per season. Season 2 started on April 9, 2016. To get ready for the season, I re-read Dragonfly in Amber. When I finished it, I continued on to book 3 and am now on book 4. No matter how many times I’ve read this series over the years, I always find something new.

Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon

“Look – I’ve got the chance of a conference next month, in Boston. I thought of coming, if – damn there’s no good way to see this. Do you want to see me?”

Ahh, young love…
