She needs to find a way out of Boston. She runs across an idea to advertise “looking for a situation”.

    Summary

    When her husband is offered a job in South Carolina, Claire Randall unwittingly leaves her successful medical career behind in London. What she thought would be a couple of months off to get things settled turns into nearly a year of floating around yacht parties and cocktail hours like an accessory on Frank's arm, hosting dinner parties she dreaded and being subtly spoken down to by the very man who's ring she wore. Just when the purposeless mundanity of her life as a bona fide Southern Socialite begins to truly sink in, two little girls move into the house next door, bringing sunshine back to her doorstep, and along with it their father.

    Inspired by Lovers In A Dangerous Time by The Barenaked Ladies, who I really do love, unironically.

    Summary

    Henry Beauchamp had a simple rule: his youngest daughter, Bianca, could only get married if her older sister, Claire, got married first. What seemed to be a simple task, since Claire was arousing interests with her stunning beauty, was more difficult than her sister imagined. Claire's rough and rebellious personality drove away any suitor who dared to make her court. Then came James Fraser, an outsider from Inverness willing to face any challenge for a good dowry.
