The Fiery Cross

The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon

This book continues the Outlander series - book 5.  The year is 1771.

Claire and Jamie are living in the colony of North Carolina on what is called Fraser's Ridge.  War is coming and they are trying to survive their day to day life as well as the volatile politics of the time.

As always, Gabaldon has painted a vivid picture of life during this time.  It really makes me appreciate the luxuries of our modern world.

The love stories of Claire and Jamie as well as their daughter Brianna and Roger continue.  The romance aspect of this series is secondary to the research of the history at the time.

I continue to love these books.  They are fantastically fun escape books.
