I am obsessed with them - I just skip the s-x scenes, but love the character building and accurate historical fiction that transports you to a different time without romanticizing it.

Any recommendations?

Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati and the sequels are a good read, plus there's a brief nod towards Jamie and Claire at one point.

Also, Google is your friend. You're not the first person to look for books like Outlander. Some of these are more historical and some are more romantic, so YMMV.

I loved Ken Follets Pillars of the earth, fall of giants less, and the others I liked even less

Poldark was great in the beginning and got worse as the books went on

Will look into Into the Wilderness

I also love Edward Rutherfords London and New York

I've looked at those lists - I've either read them or they don't apeal Sad

I really want a series where I can really get sucked into the characters without it being to fantastical ( A discovery of witches was good, but to much fantasy for my taste)
