The Fiery Cross, the fifth volume in the Outlander series finds the Fraser clan in the British colony of North Carolina circa 1700. As readers of this series have come to expect this sweeping saga is rich in historical detail. Diana Gabaldon is a magnificent storyteller who brings her characters vividly to life.
In the ten years since her extraordinary debut novel, Outlander, was published, Diana Gabaldon has entertained scores of readers with her heart-stirring stories and remarkable characters. The four volumes of her New York Times bestselling saga, featuring eighteenth century Scotsman James Fraser and his twentieth century, time-traveling wife, Claire Randall, have nearly five million U.S. copies in print.
The story of Outlander begins just after the Second World War, when a British field nurse named Claire Randall walked through a cleft stone in the Scottish highlands and was transported back some two hundred years to 1743.
Here now is The Fiery Cross, the eagerly awaited fifth volume in this remarkable, award-winning series of historical novels. The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser's wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy-a time-traveler's certain knowledge. To break his oath to the Crown will brand him a traitor; to keep it is certain doom. Jamie Fraser stands in the shadow of the fiery cross-a standard that leads nowhere but the bloody brink of war.
Crossing the boundaries of genre with its unrivaled storytelling, Diana Gabaldon's new novel is a gift both to her many loyal fans and to the lucky readers who have yet to discover her.
