Written in My Own Heart’s Blood – Diana Gabaldon



Written in My Own Heart's Blood (Outlander, #8)

‘Written in My Own Heart’s Blood’ is Gabaldon’s eighth installment to the Outlander series and is set during the American Revolution.  Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series is best categorized as  historical fiction.  My parents both read it.  My dad, the professor, who has taught history enjoys them.  He does not read romance. I say this because I think people get overly focused on the romantic bits of her books.   People who don’t read romance end up missing out on some pretty amazing historical writing. We get to learn all about George Washington’s wooden teeth, having wounds packed with French Blue Cheese and putting honey in eye wounds to stop infection, utilizing marijuana for asthma, and making ether out of vitriol.  I would love to have a human guinea pig to try these remedies on, but I will not be it.  Should I get shot please take me to a hospital…
