A RITA® AWARD NOMINATED time-travel romance novella that will warm your heart and stir your soul, by a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.


19th century widow, Emily Hawkins, is raising her sister’s orphaned children and trying to save their farm, the only home the two kids have ever known, from a greedy banker who wants more than just a mortgage payment. She has until fall to raise a crop, harvest it, sell it, and pay off the loan to get the lecherous man off her back.


21st century con man Jack McCain vowed never to work a day in his life. And he was smart enough, smooth enough, and charming enough, to make plenty of money without having having to. Right up until he conned the wrong people and wound up running for his life through the woods near his childhood home.


In those very same woods, there’s said to be a magic wishing well that appears only when needed and only to those deserving of its powers. And somehow, when Jack dives for cover from the bullets flying after him, he lands in Emily’s time. 


Is Emily the answer to Jack’s wish for a second chance to be an honest man? 


Or is he the answer to her wish for a partner to help her save the farm and raise the children. And, dare she hope, for a man worth loving?

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide

Praise for Outlander

“Marvelous and fantastic adventures, romance, sex . . . perfect escape reading.”—San Francisco Chronicle
