Best series ever! Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon: I'm hooked on the series but have developed "Gabaldon Wrist Syndrome" from propping up the weighty tomes whilst reading; I may have to break down and get a Kindle! "Written In My Own Heart's Blood" is 800 pages plus.
After the devastation of Outlander, this 2nd book begins with Claire in the 20th century. She travels to Scotland with her daughter Brianna to try to explain her adventures in time travel and the circumstances surrounding Brianna's conception. We meet Roger Mac and see the beginnings of his relationship with Bree. And Claire tells stories of the Jacobite rebellion, King Louis XV of France, and the amazing Jamie Fraser.
