Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Timing is everything"
    What made the experience of listening to A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows the most enjoyable?

    I loved learning a bit more about Roger's parents and how their lives crossed with the Randalls before Claire's jump.

    Story
    "Not at all sad"

    I'd delayed listening to this book, as I've read the whole series. Many reviews had described this as a sad ending. So, without any spoilers, I'll just say I disagree. Well worth the listen; whether or not you've read "Echo in the Bone". It doesn't spoil that book, either. Enjoy!

    "Now we know"

    Reading all the books years ago and now watching the Outlander show, i really enjoyed this little bit about Roger's Dad. I wanted a different ending, but well...

    "Just blown away!"

    What a wonderful nugget of detail to fit into the larger story. 3 from the family tree together in one place. Roger was so sure he didn't get back through! It is so poignant that he'll never know that both his parents saved him, not just one. And Marjorie! Almost reunited with Jerry on earth, working to

    Story
    "Miserable poor craft and not worth a dime"

    This was awful. It seemed disjointed and rushed. It was so not worth it and also such a miserable ending. I will never buy another short story from this author. She does not do well with short stories although she is amazing with novel length books

    Story
    "A tasty tidbit to fill in around the corners"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved hearing this bit of background story about Roger Mac and his father. As with all of Diana Gabaldon's writing, the characters came alive, and the settings were historically believable, giving me the sense of really being there with the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    As someone so used to Davina Porter's narration of these stories, it was a bit disorienting to have a male voice. It was especially odd to hear Jamie voiced differently. That said, he did a marvelous job, and it seemed appropriate for this largely male-focused book.

    And no criticism to Audible of course, but... the book was too darn short! In comparison to the rich depth and hours and hours spent on the main books in the series, it felt a bit like a tease! Though perhaps that's not all bad, and it will inspire me to go back to listen to the other books in the series again. Or even to buy more Lord John books. Hmmmmm.... ;)

    "short but sweet"

    This book gives you closer to Rogers family....it gives you a glimpse of why he knew his father wasn't going to live longer.

    "Short, but full circle"

    Diana Gabadon did a good job writing this novella. It gave a more personal insight of the character Roger that is needed. Her story was cleverly written and remains in the true spirit of her Outlander series. Now I have to retread "Echo of the Bone"! 😉

    "Just OK"

    For me to transition from the elaborate work in the books to this novella wasn't too practical. I enjoyed the books so much and wanted so much more than this delivered.
