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 learn the truth.

This novella was a quick read. It covers what happen to Roger MacKenzie's parents which was eluded to in other books. Honestly It could have been a bit longer, but it did effectively close the loop on that piece of the story. Read full review

I loved how Ms. Gabaldon lets us see Roger's parents as young people in love. Her story gives us the events of Roger discovering his father in the past, rescuing him, and then the satisfying conclusion of that rescue that no one knows but his parents. Lovely. Read full review
