    Summary


    .
    During a weekend getaway to attend a wedding on the central coast of California, Claire Randall takes a walk on the beach at Lover’s Point. As she wades into the ocean, contemplating the state of her life since her husband died three years before, she notices a wine bottle being carried in by the tide. She would have ignored it, but her name is printed boldly across the label. She retrieves it, turning it in her hands to inspect it thoroughly. A delicate clattering in the glass has her pulling on the cork to examine the life-changing contents awaiting her inside.

    Summary

    Claire is precariously close to the edge. She loves her job but everyone thinks it's causing her stress. She would love a holiday but can't quite work out how to book the time off. She loves her husband but he wants a divorce.

    It's all starting to be a bit much.

    In a daze, Claire boards a train to a place called Broch Mordha, where a chance encounter leads her to Jamie Fraser, the new owner of the dilapidated 'Dragonfly In Amber' Inn. Claire needs a place to stay whilst she attempts to put her life back together and Jamie needs a paying guest to help cover the cost of fixing the roof. Realising that they need the other to get through the next four weeks, it soon becomes obvious to everyone in the small Highland town that Claire and Jamie were meant for each other.

    Now, if only they could realise that as well...

    A bookend piece to New Ways of Turning into Stone, told through Jamie's eyes. Not set in the same universe, but they share the common theme that one character provides therapy to the other and the pair of them are both fucked up.

    Summary

    Forgiveness is a funny thing. As a child, you give it freely. A simple "I'm sorry," can erase almost any hurt. As you grow older, get burned a few times, develop a few scars, it becomes harder and harder to give. "I'm sorry," is the beginning of the conversation, not the end. And if you're burned enough times, develop scars that will never heal, forgiveness becomes an abstract concept, something Oprah talks about giving for yourself. And there are some wounds that can never be mended, not with a million "I'm sorries."

    Summary

    Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp, a promising surgeon with a bright future, is engaged to a successful and handsome Chief Consultant of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Frank Randall. Her closest friends, Geillis Duncan and Joe Abernathy, are not convinced that Frank is the man for her because of his controlling attitude. Claire has her own doubts already, and more confusion ensues when she crosses path with her long time crush, James Fraser.

    James Fraser was Scotland's Rugby Union best ever centre player until a back injury ended his career. Devastated with the turn of events and undecided what to do with his life, he turns to alcohol to numb his depression. After meeting Claire briefly in Lallybroch, he thought he would never see her again until one day, she literally drops from the sky and into his arms.
