Publisher's Summary

In which, a 17-year-old apprentice dealer in rare books is sent from Paris to England by her father, to obtain incunabula and medieval books of devotion - and whatever secrets of political intrigue or finance may come to hand in the process. In the course of her business, though, Minnie meets Harold Grey (Lord John’s elder brother), the newly-widowed (and alarmingly deranged) Duke of Pardloe, and things fall out.

One of the two final novellas of Seven Stones to Stand or Fall.

Story plot is lacking

This book has nothing to do with Outlander other than the main character has a brief meeting that last a paragraph. This book does not seem well thought out and seems to have no real beginning or end. It rambles and seems like a side story she just made into a book that has not been thought out.

Minnie

Loved her, as much as Claire Beauchamp.: Two remarkable and intelligent female character, with minds ahead of their time.

Fun to hear more about Mini and Hal

I very much enjoyed hearing some of the back story of Mini and Hal, also of Mini as yet another strong and sassy female character, and more of the strength and vulnerability of the Gray family via Hal this time. Just good characters and good back stories.
I would definitely recommend this book if you already like Gabaldon’s writing.
I love the narrator and gave him 4/5 just because although he is wonderful with the voice of Hal (and John), everyone else is sort of another version of everyone else— which is really fine because he does a good job with it. It’s just a quibble...

Great storyline

The storyline was amazing. I love getting back stories on more of the characters from the novels. Only thing that I didn't enjoy about this was the person performing. Not at all what I was expecting and a little disappointed.

This would make a great movie

I absolutely loved this book enough to listen a second time upon completion.
The main character Minnie was young intelligent and gutsy.
A perfect novella to get away from your own reality absorbed in intrigue and spice of young life.
