Summary

Arrolladora e inolvidable, la quinta entrega de la saga «Outlander» de Diana Gabaldon es un vibrante drama humano dibujado sobre el tapiz de la Historia.

Con una maestría narrativa sin igual, La cruz ardiente no defraudará a los miles de leales seguidores de la autora y asombrará a los lectores que todavía no la han descubierto.

En este largamente esperado quinto volumen, Diana Gabaldon narra una historia que puede considerarse la más emocionante de la extraordinaria saga de Claire Randall, compuesta por ForasteraAtrapada en el tiempoViajera y Tambores de otoño.

Dividida entre salvar a su marido de los peligros que se avecinan, o por el contrario contribuir a provocar el estallido de la violencia entre la Corona inglesa y las trece colonias norteamericanas, Claire vive otra vez el dilema de quien, aun conociendo los acontecimientos del futuro, tiene que adaptarse a su vida del presente. Nacida en 1918 en Inglaterra, Claire Randall sirvió como enfermera en la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Terminado el conflicto, un extraordinario viaje en el tiempo la trasladó a las Tierras Altas escocesas en 1743, y pese a haberse convertido en esposa de Jamie Fraser, y más tarde en madre y cirujana, Claire continúa sintiéndose extranjera, fuera de su lugar y de su tiempo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The dazzling fifth volume of Diana Gabaldon’s extraordinary 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.
