Summer Reading VI...

Outlander( Nas Asas do Tempo) by Diana Gabaldon is about the old Scotland, its Clans, its mysteries and traditions.
In 1945, Claire Randall, an ex-nurse in the Army, comes back from the war and is with her husband in a second honey-moon in Scotland when unexpectadly she touches a circle of rocks. Suddenly, she is transported to the year 1743, to the centre of a battle between the English and the Scottish. Captain Black Jack Randall, an English and an ancestor of her husband thinks she is a prostitute, but next she is taken by the powerful Mackenzie clan. They believe she is an English spy or a witch, however her experience as a nurse gets her the respect of the men. She ends up being forced to get married to a member of the clan, Jamie Fraser, who devotes her true love that Claire feels divided between fidelity and a new passion as well as between two very different men.
She is also taken to a world of conspiracy, war between English and Scottish Claire must decide what to do when one knows the future?

A beautiful book. I loved it all through its 772 pages.

My holidays were great too, but I didn't read so much as you, of course!

I've been some days in Spain with my family (I posted something in my blog). Well... I went to the beach, I traveled by boat and I liked it. The weather was good. By the way, this summer has been warm! I must confess that, sometimes, I wanted cold because I couldn't sleep!
These holidays I drove a lot (I think I'm getting a better driver. ;)).
I went out with friends, I saw some series, films. By the way, did you see the film "Contraluz" on cinema? I recommend, I loved it! =)
