An Outlander Novella
This is the second Outlander Novella I’m reviewing. The first was Virgins, so please see that review for some background: VIRGINS
If you are not familiar with the series, I’m not sure how much you would get out of reading this novella. For reviewing purposes, I have to assume you are an Outlander fan and hopefully you will be as excited about this as I was.
Roger lost his parents when he was a young child, believing his father, a pilot for the RAF, was shot down during WWII and his mother died in the London Blitz. I don’t want to give too much away…
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
Go away and come back and read this after you read WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD!
Roger starts to learn what really happened to his father in that book, and the story he and his mother were told turns out to be much more complicated than they knew. This novella delves into his parent’s relationship, the London bombings, how his father knew Frank Randall, and how he really died.
It was really wonderful getting to know Roger’s parents a bit. I loved this novella.
If you’re an Outlander fan, this is a fun, albeit super short read. Then again, Kindle Singles only cost $1.99! And do check your library’s ebook collection, that’s where I got my copy.
