Drums of Autumn - Diana Gabaldon ... Across seas - across time - across the grave itself. It began in Scotland, at an ancient stone circle. Claire Randall was swept through time into the arms of James Fraser whose love for her became legend - a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Two decades later, Claire travelled back again to reunite with Jamie, this time in frontier America. But Claire had left someone behind in her own time - their daughter Brianna. Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the stone circle and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she risks her own future to try to change history - and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past - or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong.

Back in 1999, I read the book that I consider my all-time favourite novel. It was Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon (The US title is Outlander) and it followed the story of Claire, a woman who travelled through time and fell in love with a man from the past – a Highlander called Jamie Fraser.
