This is quite different from other Nora Roberts stories that I have read to date with the strong paranormal story line, however it still contains all the things that we know and love about her work.The female voices almost ruin the performance, luckily the rest of the performance is very strong and entertaining.

Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....
