Looking back over the last few months, I seem to be stuck on book series. Today’s Book Beginning subject is no exception: “A Breath of Snow and Ashes” by Diana Gabaldon. This book is part of Ms. Gabaldon’s Outlander series and, if you haven’t read these books, you don’t know what you are missing.
“The dog sensed them first. Dark as it was, Ian Murray felt rather than saw Rollo’s head lift suddenly near this thigh, ears pricking. He put a hand on the dog’s neck, there ridged with warning.”
These aren’t just books, but epic novels full of colorful characters and vivid descriptions of locales and lifestyles in the 18th century. If you are a lover of historical fiction (like me), run, don’t walk, to your library and check out these books!
