Not bad, really. A "short" story about the true story of Roger's parents. I do like knowing what really happened and it's a sweet story, but I didn't feel this quite has the charm of Gabaldon's "regular" books, though I did like it. ( )

From the outlander series this novella expands on what we know of Mac's father Interesting but I don't think it was a "need to know". I wouldn't buy another novella like this as it didn't really add to the series. ( )

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. ( )

Anything by Diana Gabaldon is worth reading. This gives the reader a look at the family of Roger Mac ( )

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 Certainly, it contains a teaser for the as yet unpublished 8th book on the series.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.
