1771: the Colony of North Carolina stands in an uneasy balance, with the rich, colonial aristocracy on one side and the struggling pioneers of the backcountry on the other. Between them stands Jamie Fraser, a man of honour, a man of worth. Exiled from his beloved Scotland, he is at last possessed of the land he has longed for. By his side his extraordinary wife, Claire, a woman out of time and out of place, blessed with the uneasy gift of the knowledge of what is to come. In the past, that knowledge has brought both danger and deliverance to Jamie and Claire. Now it could be a flickering torch that will light their way through the perilous years ahead - or might ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes. "The Fiery Cross" is by turns poignant, page-turning, meticulous in its historical detail and searingly passionate.

    This is the fifth of the the Outlander saga. Let's say after a while the fifth star vanishes...

    My favorite of this series so far. No flashbacks, just right into the story where the last one left off. Kept my interest all the way through.

    Man mano che procede nelle vite di Jamie e e Claire Gabaldon sembra sempre più riluttante a separarsene, fino a dedicare 300 pagine alla descrizione di un singolo giorno (neanche Proust!).
    Alcuni episodi sembrano del tutto gratuiti (Mr e Mrs Beardsley, la bambina nera, mah?), le vicende di Roger e della sua gola francamente noiose, ma Gab. non ci fa mancare la nostra dose di sentimento, per cui le si perdona anche qualche lungaggine (tipo 600 pagine su 1400 potevano essere tranquillamente eliminate!).
    L'originale inglese è decisamente più scurrile e, a parte doversi abituare alla parlata scozzese, non particolarmente difficile.
