Diana Gabaldon könyvei a rukkolán


Diana Gabaldon - Outlander ​4. - Őszi dobszó 1-2.
Skóciában ​kezdődött, egy ősi kőkörnél. Ott, ahol a kiválasztottak számára megnyílik egy átjáró a múltba – vagy a halálba. Claire Randall túlélte ezt az elképesztő utazást, méghozzá nem is egyszer, hanem kétszer. Első útja végén Jamie Fraser, a 18. századi skót harcos ölelő karjai között kötött ki, akinek iránta érzett szerelme legendássá vált – egy tragikus szenvedély meséjévé, melynek végén Claire visszatért a jelenbe, hogy világra hozza a férfi gyermekét. A nő két évtized elteltével másodjára is útra kelt, ezúttal Amerikába, ahol a határvidéken újra találkozott Jamie-vel. Valakit azonban hátrahagyott a huszadik században: a lányukat, Briannát… Brianna felkavaró felfedezést tesz, ami a kőkörhöz vezeti őt, ahol a lány a félelmetes ismeretlenbe veti magát. Miközben anyja és sosem látott apja után kutat, kockára teszi saját jövőjét, hogy megváltoztassa a történelmet… És hogy megmentse szülei életét. De ahogy Brianna beleveti magát az érintetlen vadonba, egy szívszorító találkozás folytán talán örökre a múltban ragad… Vagy ott, ahol lennie kell, ahová a szíve és lelke kötődik… „Az Öszi dobszó DIANA GABALDON LEGJOBBAN SIKERÜLT ÉS LEGVARÁZSLATOSABB MUNKÁJA”.

Diana Gabaldon - An ​Echo in the Bone
Jamie ​Fraser, erstwhile Jacobite and reluctant rebel, knows three things about the American rebellion: the Americans will win, unlikely as that seems in 1778; being on the winning side is no guarantee of survival; and he'd rather die than face his illegitimate son - a young lieutenant in the British Army - across the barrel of a gun. Fraser's time-travelling wife, Claire, also knows a couple of things: that the Americans will win, but that the ultimate price of victory is a mystery. What she does believe is that the price won't include Jamie's life or happiness - not if she has anything to say. Claire's grown daughter Brianna, and her husband, Roger, watch the unfolding of Brianna's parents' history - a past that may be sneaking up behind their own family.

Now, A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the extraordinary story of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit. Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest. With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown. But from his wife Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence — with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie's death, along with his kin. For once, he hopes, his time-traveling family may be wrong about the future.

Diana Gabaldon - Hoang Nguyen - The ​Exile
Diana ​Gabaldon’s brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in her first-ever graphic novel, Gabaldon gives readers a fresh look at the events of the original Outlander: Jamie Fraser’s side of the story, gorgeously rendered by artist Hoang Nguyen. After too long an absence, Jamie Fraser is coming home to Scotland—but not without great trepidation. Though his beloved godfather, Murtagh, promised Jamie’s late parents he’d watch over their brash son, making good on that vow will be no easy task. There’s already a fat bounty on the young exile’s head, courtesy of Captain Black Jack Randall, the sadistic British officer who’s crossed paths—and swords—with Jamie in the past. And in the court of the mighty MacKenzie clan, Jamie is a pawn in the power struggle between his uncles: aging chieftain Colum, who demands his nephew’s loyalty—or his life—and Dougal, war chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, who’d sooner see Jamie put to the sword than anointed Colum’s heir. And then there is Claire Randall—mysterious, beautiful, and strong-willed, who appears in Jamie’s life to stir his compassion . . . and arouse his desire. But even as Jamie’s heart draws him to Claire, Murtagh is certain she’s been sent by the Old Ones, and Captain Randall accuses her of being a spy. Claire clearly has something to hide, though Jamie can’t believe she could pose him any danger. Still, he knows she is torn between two choices—a life with him, and whatever it is that draws her thoughts so often elsewhere. Step into the captivating, passionate, and suspenseful world of The Exile, and experience the storytelling magic of Diana Gabaldon as never before.

CLAIRE ​RANDALL IS LEADING A DOUBLE LIFE. SHE HAS A HUSBAND IN ONE CENTURY - AND A LOVER IN ANOTHER... In 1945, Claire Randall is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon in Scotland. Innocently she walks through a stone circle in the Highlands, and finds herself in a violent skirmish taking place in 1743. Suddenly she is Sassenach, an outlander, in a country torn by war and by clan feuds. A wartime nurse, Claire can deal with the bloody wounds that face her. But it is harder to deal with the knowledge that she is in Jacobite Scotland and the carnage of Culloden is looming. Marooned amid the passion and violence, the superstition, the shifting allegiances and the fervent loyalties, Claire is in danger from Jacobites and Redcoats - and from the shock of her own desire for James Fraser, a gallant and courageous young Scots warrior. Jamie shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire, and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Diana Gabaldon - Feuer ​und Stein
Wie ​alles begann: Eine geheimnisvolle Reise ins schottische Hochland des 18. Jahr-hunderts. Und eine Liebe, wildromantisch und stärker als Zeit und Raum. Der erste historische Roman einer jungen Autorin, die inzwischen Furore gemacht hat – und der Beginn der farbenprächtigen Highland-Saga, die auch in Deutschland mittlerweile Kult ist! Jetzt als Hardcover-Sonderausgabe in neuer Ausstattung! Millionen von Leserinnen gehören heute zur eingeschworenen Fangemeinde von Diana Gabaldon und warten seit der Lektüre ihres ersten Bestsellers „Feuer und Stein“ ungeduldig auf immer neue Romane dieser außergewöhnlichen Autorin. Kein Wunder: Die Gabaldon schreibt Bücher, „bei deren Lektüre man die Welt um sich herum vergisst!“ (San Francisco Chronicle) Man schreibt das Jahr 1945. Claire Beauchamp Randall, die bis vor kurzem als Krankenschwester an der Front gearbeitet hat, verbringt die zweiten Flitterwochen mit ihrem Mann Frank in den schottischen Highlands. Als sie bei einem Spaziergang nichtsahnend einen magischen Steinkreis berührt, verliert sie das Bewusstsein – und erwacht mitten im Schlachtgetümmel schottischer Rebellen, im Jahr 1743. Das Schottland dieser Epoche unterscheidet sich beträchtlich von dem friedlichen Ort, den Claire soeben mysteriöserweise verlassen hat: Die schottischen Clans kämpfen erbittert gegen die englische Besatzung; die Highlander sind geprägt von Rebellion und Verrat, von Aufklärung, Aberglaube und Hexenwahn. Und mitten unter ihnen Claire – eine Frau des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts, eine beargwöhnte Fremde, die die Menschen durch ihr seltsames Auftreten, ihre ungewöhnliche Sprache und ihre eigenartigen Kenntnisse in Aufruhr versetzt. Da begegnet sie James Fraser, dem mutigen Clanführer, der ihr mehr als einmal in lebensbedrohlichen Situationen zu Hilfe eilt. Immer wieder kreuzen sich ihre Wege, und bald schon spürt Claire, dass dieser Mann über ihr Schicksal entscheidend mitbestimmen wird, dass sie an seiner Seite Liebe und Leidenschaft, Rebellion und tödliche Gefahr erleben wird. Claire muss schließlich die Entscheidung ihres Lebens treffen: zwischen der Zukunft und der Vergangenheit, zwischen ihrem Mann Frank und dem rothaarigen Rebellen James Fraser. Eine Lektion hat sie inmitten dieses Abenteuers jedoch bereits gelernt – dass der Instinkt eines Mannes, die Frau zu beschützen, die er liebt, so alt ist wie die Zeit... Diana Gabaldons opulenter historischer Roman um das Liebespaar Claire Randall und Jamie Fraser, der in den USA bereits für Furore gesorgt hatte, wurde auch in Deutschland zum Überraschungsbestseller des Jahres 1995. Mit unglaublichem geschichtlichen Wissensschatz, weiblichem Einfühlungsvermögen und herzerfrischendem Humor erweckte die Autorin das wilde schottische Hochland des 18. Jahrhunderts zu neuem, farbenprächtigem Leben.

WRITTEN ​IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD is the eighth novel in the world-famous OUTLANDER series. In June of 1778, the world turns upside-down. The British army withdraws from Philadelphia, George Washington prepares to move from Valley Forge in pursuit, and Jamie Fraser comes back from the dead to discover that his best friend has married Jamie’s wife. The ninth Earl of Ellesmere discovers to his horror that he is in fact the illegitimate son of the newly-resurrected Jamie Fraser (a rebel _and_ a Scottish criminal!) and Jamie’s nephew Ian Murray discovers that his new-found cousin has an eye for Ian’s Quaker betrothed. Meanwhile, Claire Fraser deals with an asthmatic duke, Benedict Arnold, and the fear that one of her husbands may have murdered the other. And in the 20th century, Jamie and Claire’s daughter Brianna is thinking that things are probably easier in the 18th century: her son has been kidnapped, her husband has disappeared into the past, and she’s facing a vicious criminal with nothing but a stapler in her hand. Fortunately, her daughter has a miniature cricket bat and her mother’s pragmatism. The best of historical fiction with a Moebius twist, WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD weaves the fibers of a family’s life through the tapestry of historical drama.

Diana Gabaldon - Lord ​John and the Hand of Devils
A ​keepsake collection of Lord John Grey's shorter adventures and a spectacular addition to any Gabaldon fan's library, Lord John and the Hand of the Devils brings these three unique novellas together for the first time. Lord John and the Hellfire Club marks the first appearance of Lord John outside the Outlander novels (and chronologically precedes the novel Lord John and the Private Matter ). A young diplomat is killed in the street as he begs Lord John for help. Witnessing the murder, Grey vows to avenge the young man, as the trail leads to the notorious Hellfire Club and the dark caves beneath Medmenham Abbey. In Lord John and the Succubus , Grey's assignment as liaison to a Hanoverian regiment in Germany finds him caught between two threats: the advancing French and Austrian army, and the menace of a mysterious 'night-hag,' who spreads fear and death among the troops. Acknowledging that he is unlikely to fall victim to a succubus, Lord John is obliged to contend with the marauding night-hag before the enemy arrives. This tale with a touch of the supernatural bridges the action between Gabaldon's two full-length Lord John tales. Finally, in Lord John and the Haunted Soldier , Lord John is called to the Arsenal at Woolwich to answer a Royal Commission of Enquiry's questions regarding a cannon that exploded during the battle of Krefeld (a central action in Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade). Accusations ensue, and Lord John finds himself knee-deep in a morass of gunpowder, treason, and plot - haunted by a dead lieutenant, and followed by a man with no face.
