There were 137 votes in this month's poll. Thanks to everyone who participated! (And thanks also to those who mentioned scenes I didn't include as choices in the poll. <g>) I didn't vote in this poll myself, but I would have gone with the wedding-night scene as well. I don't get tired of it, no matter how many times I've read or listened to it.

The July poll is about your favorite animal from the books. Please take a moment to vote. Thanks!

It hard to pick a favorite, but I would probably choose the wedding night as well. In the wedding night scene in "Outlander" we get a glimpse of the chemistry that Jamie & Claire shared. That alone would bring the fans back again and again, but it was the scene in the end of "Outlander", when Jamie shares with Claire, the devastating rape he endured, and then the utter determination of Claire to reach inside of Jamie, and begin to purge those demons. The wedding night was the beginning and it was full of chemistry, humor, hope and dreams ...but it was the depth of the humiliation, guilt and shame Jamie endured at Randall's hand and Claire's utter determination to reach inside and purge the demons left behind. It was Claire's fearless response and refusal to give up, that was the beginning the love story that would bring us back time and again. It was the beginning, the story of Jamie and Claire, two young, fearless, strong, but humanly flawed characters that grew and matured with the progression of each book. It is the story we want to continue…
