    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.

    "Disappointed"

    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.

    "Interesting follow up to Roger's story"

    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.

    "Fleshing out the lesser characters."

    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

    "Nice little something extra"

    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.

    Story
    "Novella ... but where does it fit?"

    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 DG!"

    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.

    Story
    "Good backstory on the fate of Roger's parents"

    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


    Would you ever listen to anything by Diana Gabaldon again?

    What didn’t you like about Robert Ian MacKenzie’s performance?

    Davina Porter should do all of these books...you get used to one voice.

    "Disappointed"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Diana Gabaldon again?

    Definately. This is the first time I have been disappointed.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not at all.


    What character would you cut from A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows?

    Only one main character so without him there would be no book.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Not as good as the Outlander novels"
    Would you listen to A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows again? Why?

    Yes, because it is part of the Outlander Saga


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Possibly
