A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows: An Outlander Novella

A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows: An Outlander Novella - Diana Gabaldon This little gem of a story ALWAYS brings tears to my eyes! It's such a lovely, bittersweet, unexpected story! Diana G fills it with characters we know or have only heard about - both past and present in the Outlander series.This is the story of Roger's parents, Jerry (Jeremy) and Dolly (Marjorie) Mackenzie and WWII... Jerry is a Spitfire pilot, approached by none other than Frank Randall (yes, Claire's 1st husband) to fly on a photo mission in Poland. But while practicing with the new cameras, Jerry's plan goes down in Northumberland, in a circle of standing stones. Suddenly, Jerry finds himself in what seems like another place and time - which he is. Struggling to survive, he meets 2 rough-looking fellows, one of whom seems to know him well. They help him find his way back to the standing stone and back to his own time. Jerry somehow manages to find his way to London, only to discover that he's "returned" 2 years after he left and has been declared missing in action and presumed dead. Jerry has to find Dolly and their small son, Roger. But a bomb attack begins, and Jerry takes shelter in the nearby bomb shelter - the tube. In a heart-wrenching scene, Jerry and Dolly lock eyes minutes before the stairs that Dolly is on crumble to dust. Dolly launches wee Roger into the air towards his father... If you're an Outlander fan, you must read this story!
