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.

I have read all of the books in the outlander series and I am swept away by this story! I cannot wait for the next book and all the books after that. I went back and read again a space between And I am wondering if he will bring the story about future, and who is Claire Fraser‘s parents? And if they go into the future young again? And I am also realizing in this story but the time is always now and simultaneous. I love the story! Thank you so much for your beautiful creative mind. For it’s not only a story it’s a learning tool as everything is.
Diana Gabaldon never disappoints!!
Bravo!! Yet another brilliant job by a masterful story teller. Love getting to dive deeper look into the characters of my all time favorite Outlander saga. Waiting patiently (or trying to anyway :) ) for book nine to arrive.
Good short story but should have just included in the book as an extra. Not very exciting. But did explain the story of Roger’s parents.
