Summary

Step back in time with the Outlander series and immerse yourself in a world of adventure and intrigue. 

On her second honeymoon in 1946, former WWII nurse Claire Fraser finds herself transported into the midst of another conflict: the Jacobite rebellion in 1746. The story unfolds as Claire struggles to reconcile the unfamiliar past with the challenges of the future, torn between her 20th-century husband and her 18th-century saviour. Navigating her way through danger, confusion and love, listeners will be drawn into a narrative that twists and turns through war, fantasy and romance.  

The unabridged listening experience is enhanced by narrator Davina Porter, a veteran of over 100 audio titles. Her attention to historical detail and elegant style invite the audience into every scene, conflict and emotion. Porter draws on her experience of historical fiction and nonfiction to carry the listener along with Claire as she steps through the mysterious portal and into the past. 

Written by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander was inspired by a classic Doctor Who episode. Gabaldon began work on the story to simply practice her technique but went on to create a saga that has delighted audiences worldwide. Refusing to be confined to one genre, the mix of historical fiction, romance, fantasy and adventure has created legions of fans. First released in 1990, the series lives on, with at least one more eagerly awaited instalment in the pipeline. 

With over 25 million sales across the globe, Outlander is one of the best-selling series of all time. Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, the time-travelling, genre-bending tales have stood the test of time. As new fans discover the much-loved characters through the TV adaptation, step into the original and encounter the world of Outlander.
