#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BOOKLIST In her now classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon told the story of Claire Randall, an English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone circle in the Scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears . . . into 1743. The story unfolded from there in seven bestselling novels, and CNN has called it "a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries]." Now the story continues in Written in My Own Heart's Blood. 1778: France declares war on Great Britain, the British army leaves Philadelphia, and George Washington's troops leave Valley Forge in pursuit. At this moment, Jamie Fraser returns from a presumed watery grave to discover that his best friend has married his wife, his illegitimate son has discovered (to his horror) who his father really is, and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to marry a Quaker. Meanwhile, Jamie's wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are busy picking up the pieces. The Frasers can only be thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in twentieth-century Scotland. Or not. In fact, Brianna is searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to learn her family's secrets. Her husband, Roger, has ventured into the past in search of the missing boy . . . never suspecting that the object of his quest has not left the present. Now, with Roger out of the way, the kidnapper can focus on his true target: Brianna herself. Written in My Own Heart's Blood is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other. Praise for Written in My Own Heart's Blood "[Written in My Own Heart's Blood] features all the passion and swashbuckling that fans of this historical fantasy series have come to expect."-People "Another breakneck, rip-roaring, oh-so-addictive page-turner from Gabaldon . . . Take a deep breath, jump aboard, and enjoy the ride."-Library Journal "With her Outlander series, Gabaldon . . . successfully [juggles] a sizable and captivating cast of characters; developing thrilling plotlines that borrow equally from adventure, history, and romance; and meticulously integrating a wealth of fascinating period details into the story without slowing down the pace. The result is a sprawling and enthralling saga that is guaranteed to keep readers up long past their bedtimes."-Booklist (starred review)

Autorenporträt
Diana Gabaldon wurde 1952 geboren und lebt heute mit ihrem Mann, drei Kindern und vielen Tieren in Flagstaff (Arizona, USA). Nach dem Studium der Biologie, Meeresbiologie und Ökologie arbeitete sie als Honorarprofessorin für Tiefseebiologie und Zoologie an der Universität von Arizona. Als sie Mitte 30 war, wagte sie es, ihrem geheimen Wunsch nachzugehen: ein Buch zu schreiben. Dass sie mit Sprache umgehen kann, hatte sie u. a. in wissenschaftlichen Beiträgen, Textbüchern, Rezensionen und Walt-Disney-Comics(!) bewiesen. Gabaldons erster Roman "Feuer und Stein" wurde gleich ein Riesenerfolg und bildete den Einstieg in die Highland-Saga. Die Heldin der Romane, Claire Randall, gerät auf einer Zeitreise ins 18. Jahrhundert mitten hinein in die Kämpfe der schottischen Clans gegen die englische Besatzung. In den späteren Romanen kämpfen dann ihre Nachkommen u. a. im Amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg. Immer wieder kreuzt James Fraser ihren Weg... Die Bände stecken voll genau recherchierter Historie, Spannung, Humor, Romantik und jeder Menge Erotik.

Das meint die buecher.de-Redaktion: Die Leser Diana Gabaldons verfolgen die Abenteuer von Claire und James und ihre anderen Geschichten atemlos bis zur letzten Seite - nur wenige Autorinnen haben eine solch treue Fangemeinde.
