The Outlandish Companion: Companion to Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn
I really enjoy Gabaldon’s books. Gabaldon lays it to rest with a detailed explanation of Roger’s background. This would be very helpful to any writer who might be considering writing a novel set in approximately the same time and place as the Outlander books.

If you are new to the Outlander universe, this is a gem of a book to pick up. I was rather disappointed in this companion book. I look forward to reading volume 5! She is an Outlander fan and I’ve spent many hours over the last few days reading to her from this book.
