Four extraordinary stories featuring characters from the bestselling Outlander series. The fiery trails of tracer bullets, as a wounded Spitfire falls from the sky.
A Jamaican plantation burns deep into the night. A handful of heroic Highlanders fight their way straight up a vertical cliff to stand on the Plains of Abraham in a fiery dawn. And a torch burns green, through the eerie surrounds of a Parisian cemetery, down into the mysteries of the earth. Four Outlander tales, each set in a different time and place, and yet each one a fiery thread in the warp and weft of the epic story that began in Scotland in 1945, when Claire Randall first touched a boulder in an ancient stone circle and was hurled back in time...

Review by Glorybe1
This is a great read for fans of The Outlander series.The book is basically 4 short stories about things mentioned in the Outlander book and The Lord John stories, but expanded a bit to give more of an insight into the person or event mentioned.Bulges are what Diana Gabaldon herself calls them!! And a very good description it is too!!A leaf on the wind of All Hallows, tells the story of Rogers parents during WWII, which we don't hear too much of in the main book.The space Between, tells of the Comte St Germain, a tricky customer to say the least, we thought him dead, but was he?The Custom of the Army, is a Lord John story. Following on the heels of an electric Eel party in London, Lord John is forced to flee.And the final story is set in Jamaica where Lord John is sent to try and quell a revolt of escaped slaves, but certainly nothing is as it seems!Bulges of a very interesting variety!!
