"Voyager" is the third installment of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander saga and just as riveting as the previous two books. It's been two decades since Claire had to leave Jamie behind in order to escape the infamous battle of Culloden. She's always believed that he had died in battle, but when Roger uncovers proof that he survived, Claire has a difficult decision to make: Stay in her native time and never see him again or leave her daughter behind and travel back in time to find him. Nobody ever said love was easy, especially when it comes to the Frasers. I just love this series. Claire and Jamie are great characters separately and make an even better couple. I love their dynamic, their compromises, Claire's strength and Jamie's open-mindedness. The story might be confusing to some and seem to be all over the place at times, but I enjoy their journey immensely. I am very glad that Gabaldon doesn't just gloss over the 20 years Claire and Jamie spent apart. It's great, albeit hard, to read what happened to Jamie during that time. Some of the choices he made made me positively furious, but I love how everything turns out in the end, regardless. If you enjoy historical novels and great romances and somehow haven't already stumbled upon this series, I strongly suggest you pick it up.

NOW THE STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES OUTLANDER
In this rich, vibrant tale, Diana Gabaldon continues the story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser that began with the now-classic novel Outlander and continued inDragonfly in Amber. Sweeping us from the battlefields of eighteenth-century Scotland to the exotic West Indies, Diana Gabaldon weaves magic once again in an exhilarating and utterly unforgettable novel.
Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her . . . and her body still cries out for him in her dreams.
Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and the pain awaiting her . . . the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland . . . and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite-or forever doom-her timeless love.
