Day 14 of the 30 day book talk...

Favourite book of your favourite author

At the risk of being repetitive and because any book in the Outlander saga is a favourite - today's book talk will be the second book in the series - Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon,

Dragonfly in Amber
by Diana Gabaldon

This book sees the continuation of the story up to, and including the battle of Culloden in 1745 - when the Highland army defended the right of the pretender to the throne, Charles Edward Stuart's attempt to take the English crown. The build up, and the history of the ' 45 is expertly captured, and Jamie and Claire face an agonising decision...

The title of this book seems quite obscure but takes inspiration from a piece of Amber, which was gifted to Claire, and trapped within the amber was a tiny dragonfly........

The Moon Cottage Cats by Marilyn Edwards

Moon Cottage Cats: v. 2
by Marilyn Edwards

This is my favourite book by my favourite writer and this edition of  the book is even better because there is another jaffa lookalike on the front cover.
