I actually had an easier time believing someone could step through stones and find themselves in a different time than believing the love story.
I like hearing how a story works from both a male and female view. I have read a number of books written by male authors where the female's behaviour didn't ring true to me. Did you feel that Jamie didn't behave as a man actually might?
