The Outlander Gil Adamson read online review & book description:

In 1903 a mysterious young woman flees alone across the West, one heart-pounding step ahead of the law. At nineteen, Mary Boulton has just become a widow—and her husband's killer. As bloodhounds track her frantic race toward the mountains, she is tormented by mad visions and by the knowledge that her two ruthless brothers-in-law are in pursuit, determined to avenge their younger brother's death. Responding to little more than the primitive fight for life, the widow retreats ever deeper into the wilderness—and into the wilds of her own mind—encountering an unforgettable cast of eccentrics along the way.

With the stunning prose and captivating mood of great works like Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain or early Cormac McCarthy, Gil Adamson's intoxicating debut novel weds a brilliant literary style to the gripping tale of one woman's desperate escape.

    I loved this book. Couldn't put it down. I could actually put myself in Mary's place as she struggled to survive & escape. What a time to be a woman! Life was so much harder... I will look forward to more wonderful storytelling from this wonderful author.

    I absolutely love the way this guy writes, and I loved the story. But I am such that I feel that sexual scenes in a story do more damage to the plot than good. They just take a chunk out of a good story, bringing it to a stand still while you try to muddle through the exploit. I usually pass them up so I can get back to what really matters. The ending was a bit disappointing. Too much game playing.
