Available for the first time as an audiobook 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 finally learn the truth.

I wanted to find out what really happened to roger's father. It filled in some blanks and I truly love Diana gabaldon's writing style
A mixture of feelings and confusion
When Rogers's dad came home on leave
The hug by the dark haired man
I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. I would like a little less stress though
I'm happily married and the mother to three boys ages 12, 9, and 3. Audible comes in very handy, when one does not have much time to read.
Yes, it gives one great insight into what happened to Roger's parents.
Jerry and wee Roger. Jerry has a very colorful vocabulary and truly loves his family.
When Jerry is meets the dark and light mystery men who know about time travel
Very disappointed in the short length; the usual character development, historical richness, and in-depth story telling were missing. I have read much of Diana's work and this falls short. Most disappointing wasI paid a full credit on Audible and feel short changed.
Good short story. Interesting conclusion to the introduction of Jerry's character in the "Echo in the Bone". This gave substance to the characters of Roger's parents.
Love these side stories that answer questions we have on the lesser characters. Helps to round out the main characters.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Well written OF COURSE and even though I knew what the ultimate outcome was.....I still was roped into hoping for more.
Narration was not up to the standards Davina Porter has created for the Outlander series books. I realized a male voice was needed, but although he had the correct name....MacKenzie is not one of my favorites.
It does give a little twist to previous part of the story, and answers question brought up in last installation ... but am wondering if it could have been included differently, or perhaps if this twist had been thought of before when telling the bombing story,maybe more details incorporated there so fans could have figured it out, and no need for this short NOVELLA. I'm probably saying that because it is way too short. It leaves me craving more as I had already put everyone to rest at the end of 8.
I love being able to hear more of the story outside of the Outlander series. there's so much more going on did what the Outlander series has to offer. so these little side books really answers a lot of questions.
Closure on Roger's parents and their fate. Especially happy to hear that Roger was wrong and that Jerry did make it back, if only for a brief time. Glad that Jeremiah and Marjorie, or as they called each other, Jerry and Dottie were united at the end.
This narrator was good but I missed Divina Porter, probably because I'm so used to her being the voice of Outlander.
Diana Gabaldon yes...the novellas no
Davina Porter should do all of these books...you get used to one voice.
Someone who has not read the Outlander series because their expectations would be much lower. The Outlander series is exceptionally good both in the detail of the writing and in the various plots.
Definately. This is the first time I have been disappointed.
Not at all.
Only one main character so without him there would be no book.
Lacked the class, detail and everything I have come to expect from Diana Gabaldon. Actually I find it difficult to believe that she really wrote this.
As if the Gabaldon books aren't riviting and mindblowing enough! Here's just a little extra WOW to make me want to read them ALL again!
Sad that Rob did not know the story of his parent last time together . Good inside for the listener
"Not as good as the Outlander novels"
Yes, because it is part of the Outlander Saga
I am a devotee of Diana Gabaldon but was disappointed in this novelette. Jerry didn't do much when he went through the stones except wander about a bit. You never really got hold of a decent threadline either in the past or the present.
