This was a reread for me as part of both The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge and The Outlander Challenge. The idea behind The Outlander Challenge is to complete all of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander novels before the release of An Echo in the Bone in September this year. I've found it a fantastic motivator to dive back into a much-loved series.
Dragonfly in Amber continues the story of Jamie and Claire pretty much where Cross Stitch/Outlander left off. Set mostly in the past (bar about 100 pages) with a high-level of research and historical accuracy it can easily be classified as a historical novel. If you forget the fact that Claire is a time-traveller...
I absolutely loved revisiting this novel and I can't wait to see what's in store for the rest of series. Two down, four to go!
