The dazzling fifth volume of Diana Gabaldon sextraordinary Outlander saga, featuring 18th-century Scotsman James Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall. 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. Born in the year of Our Lord 1918, Claire Randall served England as a nurse on the battlefields of World War II, and in the aftermath of peace found fresh conflicts when she walked through a cleftstone on the Scottish Highlands and found herself an outlander, an English lady in a place where no lady should be, in a time 1743 when the only English in Scotland were the officers and men of King George s army. Now wife, mother, and surgeon, Claire is still an outlander, out of place, and out of time, but now, by choice, linked by love to her only anchor Jamie Fraser. Her unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.... Grand, sweeping, utterly unforgettable, The Fiery Cross is riveting entertainment, a vibrant tapestry of history and human drama. From the Hardcover edition."

Another door stop for yoru collection. Her editor needs to take a great big pruning saw to the work she presents and people need to stop buying these books. The singel plot deivce is tired and worn. Someone kill Jamie off permeneantly and put me out of my misery please. WHy do people keep buying these books_ It is totally beyond me.

D.Gabaldon is a New York Best Selling Author for a reason.....but you have to read her Outlander Series to find out.
This book was a very enjoyable read. A little drawn out in places but overall, a thrilling, nail-bitting read (in places!!!).
However, I recommend you read the other books first to avoid confusion....but definitely give this author a go...you won't be disappointed!!!
