"Addie dreams of telling Luc these things, just to see the shade it turns his eyes, the green of being bested. The green of forfeit, and of losing. But if he’s taught her anything, it’s patience. So Addie says nothing of the new game, the new rules, the new battle that’s begun. She only smiles, and sets the book back on its shelf." - VE Schwab, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
With Outlander, Diana Gabaldon has crafted an uncommonly rich tale. Gabaldon writes believable, complex characters that are firmly grounded in their historical context. This is no small feat, especially because we experience two timelines in Outlander and both are equally vivid. Gabaldon’s research and attention to detail shine–in each setting we get a chance to learn something new about everyday living in 1743 Scotland.
