About 20 years ago a dear friend thrust a book at me and declared “You have to read this!” It was called Cross Stitch (also known as Outlander) and when I started I could not stop, often finding myself up until 3.30am devouring the story…. and then the rest of the books that followed.
It also began my love affair with Scotland, where I visited in 2000 and didn’t want to leave.
They have now turned Diana Gabaldon’s books into a TV series that is just beautiful. Most importantly- they got Jamie Fraser, the lead man, right!
I have felt Scotland calling me again this year. It is time to answer her call.
In the meantime I will settle for the Outlander TV series….
