Brianna and Roger get to spend some time together in Outlander Book 5, Chapter 47

It’s been a long day at Jocasta and Duncan’s wedding. Brianna and Roger finally get to spend some time together in Outlander Book 5, Chapter 47.

Just like has happened all the other times they’ve found time together, they both get interrupted by another situation. This time, it’s all about Jemmy. He’s sick and needs attention.

Fortunately, it’s not a serious illness. And fortunately, Brianna is warned long before anyone can get Dr. Fentiman, which would likely make Jemmy far more seriously sick considering the medicine of the time. Claire is the one who can help.

For the most part, there isn’t a lot in the story to foreshadow anything. However, I do notice something when it comes to the initial part of the chapter with Roger and his thoughts. I’ll get to that in the foreshadowing section.

The chapter wasn’t used for the series. Instead, Jemmy was already sick and Bree and Roger had decided to stay at the Ridge instead of heading to Jocasta’s wedding. I’ll get to why I thought it was best the show handled things that way in the adaptation section.

Let’s dive into The Fiery Cross Chapter 47.
