A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows: An Outlander Novella by Diana Gabaldon

In this original Outlander novella, Diana Gabaldon reveals what really happened to Roger MacKenzie Wakefield’s parents. Orphaned during World War II, Roger believed that his mother died during the London Blitz, and that his father, an RAF pilot, was killed in combat. But in An Echo in the Bone, Roger discovers that this may not be the whole story. Now, in “A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows,” readers learn the truth.

..... but just a tiny little morsel of the banquet that is Ms Gabaldon's Outlander series. If this nudges you to read all the Outlander books then you will be a very lucky person. The series becomes your life, like a soap opera; you simply have to know what happens next. And they are still being written. Do yourself a favor, get hooked.

I have never picked up material from Gabaldon that was less than marvelous. No matter how long the novel is, I'm not satisfied. She always makes me want more. Her stories are laid out well with breaking points so you can put it down if you have to but so well written that I fight the urge until well after bedtime.

This very satisfyingly, and with lots of sentimental zing, fills in Roger's backstory.  Through the author's special alchemy, Roger and Jamie appear too, although the remain unnamed.  Probably only Gabaldon devotees will truly "get" this.  Oh, and it does wrench the emotions!

I loved, loved, loved Jerry & Dolly's story. I cannot wait to hear Roger's side of it in the next installment.

You really miss Claire and Jamie when the books end.

Diana Gabaldon has written a story that you will think about long after the book has been put aside. Her ability to interrupt history and bend it into her story line in incredible. After reading this short novel, I kept thinking what a wonderful imagination she must have in order put the reader into the life of the character. As an avid reader of the Outlander series, I was not expecting this novella to top the books, but it did wet my appetite for more shorts of various Outlander characters.

This story is written in the author's engaging style and it was so wonderful to see much-loved characters again! A wonderful "puzzle-piece" novella for the Outlander series.

Loved it.  Gives a little peek into why Roger is how he is.

Any Diana Gabaldon good is fantastic! I escape into her stories and find myself wanting to be a part of the story. Of course Jamie Fraser is the man every woman wants....

I enjoyed reading about Roger's parents. It was written in true Gabaldon style.

I always enjoy reading Diana Gabaldon's stories, and is was a quick, comforting reason why. Jerry's experiences as a RAF pilot are so real that you feel you're there with him. And of course all the loose ends get tied neatly together with Frank as well. Then there are the 2 strangers... All in all, a great little nugget to satisfy the craving one gets between major books.

Was a good follow-up to many of the questions left unanswered in the original Outlander series. Good read, easy read. Interesting historical facts woven in among the fiction. Definitely recommend the book.

Quick short story,you should finish the series before you read this,there is a spoiler for book #7.

Torn between 3 and 4. Just not enough guts to it. I think she writes the 1000 pagers for a reason. She is solid at sculpting. What a suprise when I read her bio after years of being a fan to realize we live in the same part of town. Cool.

Ah! A little hit from the Outlander series, since I have practically gone insane from withdrawal. Great story, I love Roger as much as the rest of them.

A sad tale, but finally and explanation, of Rogers Dad's where a bouts, and the type of man he was. It also gives clues to Rogers ability's. Wish it could have been longer, I love this series.
