Books o' the Month: The Outlandish Companion and The Fiery Cross
Well, that Diana Gabaldon has got me hooked. After Drums of Autumn, she published a companion book to the series, The Outlandish Companion, which I have been browsing in bits and pieces, and quite enjoying.
Next came The Fiery Cross, which continues the adventure of Jamie and Claire Fraser in pre-Revolutionary America. This series has been thoroughly addictive, each book around 1,000 pages long, and still not enough!
So, I must warn you again, don't start reading these books if you want or need to get anything done. Seriously.
I am an artist-on-hold. Married with two young children (Valerie 9, Andrew 5), I have "surrendered to motherhood." I love to crochet and sew and read, but don't get to as often as I'd like. And still, I can hardly keep up with the dishes and the laundry.
