Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, 870 pages

This is the third book in Gabaldon's Outlander series, and while the second one (Dragonfly in Amber) faltered a bit, Voyager definitely picked up the pace again. This book finds our heroine, Claire, back in 1968 searching through historical documents to find Jamie's whereabouts in 1770 so she can return to him. The resulting voyage back in time also takes a reunited Claire and Jamie across the pond to the West Indies in search of Jamie's kidnapped nephew.

While the first couple of books in this series definitely lean toward the romance side of the story, this one is much more of an historical adventure novel, with a pinch of fantasy and a side of romance thrown in to keep things interesting. I'm good with that transition, and I'm glad Gabaldon found her feet again here after Dragonfly in Amber.
