I know it was just a tiny novella—or according to the author, "a story." And it did fill in some blanks, albeit blanks I wasn't all that concerned about. However, it was just kind of dull compared to what I'm used to in the series. ( )

A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallow’s – Gabaldon

4 stars

It is sub-titled An Outlander Novella, and I suppose that at 54 pages it is a bit long for a short story. It feels like a chapter pulled from one of Gabaldon’s big fat books. Certainly, it contains a teaser for the as yet unpublished 8th book on the series. The story takes place during WW2 and concerns Roger MacKenzie’s parents, Jerry and Marjorie. In addition to some presumably accurate descriptions of Spitfire flight maneuvers, Gabaldon remains true to form in her ability to provide her characters with satisfying sex lives. This story would be incomprehensible to anyone who is not familiar with the entire Outlander series. As a devoted fan, I found it to be what Gabaldon calls ‘methadone’; an entertaining way to feed my addiction until the next book is published.

Just finished reading An Echo in the Bone and Roger and Buck going back in time. Now we know Roger got to see his dad, but also that his dad saved him in the tunnel. ( )

Short novella finally filling in the pieces of what really happened to Roger Mackenzie's parents, Jerry & Dolly. We get disjointed bits and pieces in the Outlander series, but this is the one place where we, the reader, find out the full story. Touching addition to the series and really a must read for fans of these books. I don't remember off the top of my head where in the series this would fall into place. Research that before you read it so you don't find things out too soon. I think in this case it's better to have your questions answered after you've already gotten sunk into the mystery of it all.

I thoroughly enjoyed this short little novella because of the back story it contains about Roger's parents. A quick read that fills in a gap or two in the major novel series, this is well worth the read. ( )
