A Romance of Epic Proportions due out September 22

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon is the latest, eagerly awaited installment in her Outlander series. Like a sample? Gabaldon posts excerpts from her latest book on her website.

In the spirit of Dan Brown, count down the days until this latest in the series is available.

Gabaldon fans, The Ladies of Lallybroch, are anxiously waiting. Check out their website and see the merchandise available for purchase. (totebags, mugs, t-shirts).

Publisher's description:

"Readers have been waiting with bated breath for the seventh volume in bestselling author Diana Gabaldon’s epic Outlander saga — a masterpiece of historical fiction featuring Jamie and Claire, from one of the genre’s most popular and beloved authors.

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."

If you haven't pre-ordered your book and want something long, romantic and laced with historical details try Sara Donati's Wilderness series, Jennifer Donnelly's Tea Rose series or Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind (not a series, but will keep you occupied and engaged.)
