    Summary

    Life has forced Claire to compartmentalize herself into neat--and quite separate--little boxes: her uncle's free-spirited niece, the army's skilled and confident veteran nurse, and Frank's subdued wife. At some point, she lost track of which Claire was the real one. In fleeing from her husband, she unwittingly falls through time, landing in another century and in even greater peril. Now, her survival will depend on finding the strength she thought she'd lost--with the help of an altogether different sort of man.

    From the moment James Fraser heard her voice, he knew her to be the same mysterious woman who'd been haunting his dreams for months. He'd loved her before he'd even seen her with his waking eyes, and he was determined to keep her safe no matter the cost. Together, they must fight for themselves, their family, and a love strong enough to conquer time itself.

    Summary

    When her husband is offered a job in South Carolina, Claire Randall unwittingly leaves her successful medical career behind in London. What she thought would be a couple of months off to get things settled turns into nearly a year of floating around yacht parties and cocktail hours like an accessory on Frank's arm, hosting dinner parties she dreaded and being subtly spoken down to by the very man who's ring she wore. Just when the purposeless mundanity of her life as a bona fide Southern Socialite begins to truly sink in, two little girls move into the house next door, bringing sunshine back to her doorstep, and along with it their father.

    Inspired by Lovers In A Dangerous Time by The Barenaked Ladies, who I really do love, unironically.

    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."
