“It’s all Claire’s fault there’s time travel in Outlander.” Diana Gabaldon
I do love how Diana says the characters tell her who they are and what they are doing.
Perhaps this is a reason the characters leap off the page evoking any and every emotion for the reader. Why they seem truly real. Why we connect so deeply with them. Why we hear them so clearly.
I do giggle a wee bit at the blaming of Claire for the time travel. Claire usually finds a way to get where she needs to be. Eventually.
As ever, we must love Claire for her strong headed self.
