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'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
I loved learning a bit more about Roger's parents and how their lives crossed with the Randalls before Claire's jump.
I'm glad I waited to read this after book #8 - MOBY! This answered a lot of questions that I had about Rogers parents and how they died. I was smiling when the 2 men arrived to rescue Jeremiah. You definitely need to read book #8 to put the puzzle together. The narrator was good, but I missed Davina Porter's voice, especially after binging on the 8 novels. I'm addicted to this series!
this is comming from a woman who just loves the main books .they are indetail and carry us back into there world . just as this just started it was over needs to hold us longer
The storyline was wonderful, as are all of her books. I love getting some background info on the characters of he main series.
Only thing i didnt like was the narrator.
He reads a bit dry. Diana, redo this one with your regular narrator and ill rebuy it just so i can enjoy it well read.
if you love the Outlander series, this is a must read/listen. It's rather shirt and therefore slightly overpriced, but I don't mind supporting a favorite author. It's a tragic story with an expected turn, so much like the rest of Gaboldon's work. I wish it were longer, but I could say that for all her work!
Seemed to be a bit of a filler between real events. Don't get me wrong, things happened, just nothing to do with the story line. The story didn't move and the next book is yet to be published...Just finish it already...I know, I should probably just stop now, but when you have read them all. It's a trap!! Tongue-in-cheek.
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.
