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.

I miss davina porter

Nice little tie up to the outlander series but I miss davina porter so much that I searched books read by her and purchased one of those.

Family Reunions In Print

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend anything Diana wrote at this stage, including her grocery list!
This is just another view into the lives and loves of the people we have grown to known and cherish in this expansive series.

What did you like best about this story?

I do not do spoilers ;)
The small quirks and facts you can learn about family members just enhances the other writings.

What about Robert Ian MacKenzie’s performance did you like?

Nice smooth deep voice with the emotional levels of a man who is involved in the story line.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed, cried, and sighed....

Any additional comments?

I eagerly await more ..................

Nice side story

Sad and happy at the same time. Brought to life a small section of her larger story. Good narration.

A Must Read Before MOHB!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this book to a friend, and have. If you're reading the entire story, it gives you such good information as to what happened to Roger's parents. I'm in the middle of MOHB and am just waiting for some of the scenes from THIS book to happen, but from a different point of view...

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows?

When the sirens start and Jerry heads for the tunnels... you just know what's going to happen and all the pieces sadly fall into place.

What does Robert Ian MacKenzie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I didn't like his voice at first, but the first time he started with the Scottish accent, I smiled big and sat back. I'm so used to Davina Porter reading this series, but he does a really fantastic job. I can't put my finger on anything specific, but I'd for sure give it a listen.

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

Oh definitely, especially since it's so short.

Any additional comments?

For sure read this after ECHO and before MOHB. It's less than 2 hours! Do it, I say!

Closure on Roger's Parents

Ugh, the sad back story of Roger's parents. It neatly wraps up that story line, but I do hope the story will be expanded upon in the next book. It was a woefully short story from Ms. Gabaldon haha.

Overall a grim story, but oh, so well written.

Would you listen to A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows again? Why?

It's a sad story. I have no need to hear it again. But the details are essential if you are a devoted Outlander follower.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Jerry McKenzie. Any man who can love one woman completely, steals my heart

What about Robert Ian MacKenzie’s performance did you like?

He did great accents, and was a great smooth reader.

She could write a funeral dirge and I would buy it

What did you love best about A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows?

It is nice to see the expansion of her characters outside of the Outlander series. So, hint hint, if Jamie and Claire are put in an old folks home (which I am sure Diana could make interesting) she could go sideways or backwards and still satisfy our wish to read her work.

What about Robert Ian MacKenzie’s performance did you like?

I liked his performance, although I am used to Davina Porter from the Outlander series.

Any additional comments?

I wish it was longer, but I suppose one person can only do so much....

Not sure if it was the book or me

If you could sum up A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows in three words, what would they be?

I only listened to part of this book and then I read the rest on my Kindle. While I think the story was fine for an Outlander novella and enjoyed it, the audio quality wasn't that great. I downloaded the book to the app on my phone and it had its issues, there were inconsistencies in the volume, it kept fading in and out. So I finished it on my kindle app and either that was formatted incorrectly or there were some mistakes in the text, whether in the writing or the transcribing, I don't remember them as being characteristic of Gabaldon's writing, but I usually listen and may have missed them.I did enjoy the narrator and overall it was a quick and enjoyable read.

Good Addition to the Series

Written & narrated so well... this novella adds to the series. It's historical fiction at its best. And fans of the series will definitely want to read this. The entire series is addictive but be sure to read it in order.

Preview to the next book in outlander series?

What made the experience of listening to A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows the most enjoyable?

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

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

A mixture of feelings and confusion

Which scene was your favorite?

When Rogers's dad came home on leave

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The hug by the dark haired man

Any additional comments?

I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. I would like a little less stress though

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

Provides a great little story filler-in for the Outlander series

A story about Jerry, Roger's Dad, for all those who wonder what really happened to him!! As usual, DG's writing is wonderful.. and tissues are mandatory. You know, whenever I am near a DG story, I think about tissues and wonder how they managed without them in the 1700s LOL.
