Il capitolo zero della saga di Outlander: chi era Jamie Fraser prima di conoscere Claire? Una splendida storia di amicizia e fratellanza
1740: Il giovane Jamie Fraser, orfano di padre ucciso dagli inglesi e a sua volta ferito, ha lasciato la Scozia e sta andando in Francia con l’amico Ian Murray per raggiungere un gruppo di mercenari. Entrambi hanno delle ottime ragioni per stare lontani dalla loro patria ed entrambi, nonostante facciano di tutto per rimediare alla situazione, sono ancora vergini. E così, quando un medico ebreo li recluta per portare due tesori a Parigi, entrambi accettano con entusiasmo: uno è una rarissima e preziosissima Torah, l’altro è la splendida nipote del medico, Rebecca, destinata a un matrimonio combinato. Jamie e Ian si innamorano a prima vista di Rebecca, ma dovranno mostrarsi molto cauti perché non sanno veramente con chi hanno a che fare…
Suspense, avventura, storia e amore: tutti gli ingredienti di Outlander in una splendida storia di amicizia e fratellanza che ha come protagonisti i giovani Jamie Fraser e l’amico Ian Murray.
