    1. Where I got the book: purchased on Kindle.This is another of Diana Gabaldon’s nice little earners e-novelettes based on the Outlander series. This time—I hope I’ve gotten this right—it involves Jamie’s nephew Michael, returning to Paris after the death of his wife, and Jamie's stepdaughter Joanie (Laoghaire's daughter), traveling to Paris to become a nun. AND she wants to become a nun because…she is finding it hard to cope with being some kind of seer, with voices in her head and the [...]

    2. 4.5 starsJoan MacKimmie, stepdaughter of Jamie Fraser is leaving Scotland and heading to France to enter the convent, sailing across the Channel with Michael Murray on one of his ships. Michael, a recent widower, is returning to France after the death of his father, Ian.Paul Rakoczy, Comte St Germain.eved dead back. Time-traveller and dabbler in magic, what is his agenda? Set in Paris, 1778 these two storylines ultimately intersect. The Space Between:For Michael, still bowed down in grief with t [...]

    3. My favorite Gabaldon novella so far. I loved Michael and Joan and I really want to know what happened to Raymond and Comte St Germain. I read Diana plans a new series about Raymond and time travellers and I really can't wait for itThis author is simply unique in her intensity, emotions and richness of details.

    4. If I have to be completely honest even fans of Outlander really wont miss a lot by not reading the novella and the only reason why I bought this is because I miss Davina Porter’s narration :-)This little interlude does not add or subtract anything from the main series but it was a nice 4-hour audio that apparently should only be read after book 7.This definitely cannot be read as a stand alone with no knowledge of the series but I think it can be read before book 7 as the majority of the tensi [...]

    5. This Outlander novella tracks the story of Joan McKimmie (Jamie Fraser's step-daughter by Laoghaire) when she leaves Scotland for France under the protection of Michael Murray (Ian Murray's elder brother who has a wine business in Paris) to become a nun. Those who read Gabaldon's novel Echo in the Bone will recall the two leaving on this journey.The Space Between is a bit over a 100 pages and featured in the anthology "The Mad Scientist's Guide to World Domination" for those who wish to read it. [...]

    6. Everything is good that's Outlander related, but I give it a 4 because it's so short, just as you're getting into it - it ends! It's surely enough to whet the appetite, but leaves the reader a bit dissatisfied and up in the air! The adventures of Michael Murray and Joan MacKimmie in Paris bring back memories and old characters from Dragonfly in Amber. Danger lurks nearby as Joan, starting out as a young novice in a convent, has a secret in which she has some sort of power to hear voices and fors [...]

    7. In this novella, Gabaldon chooses two lesser characters and send them on a journey mentioned towards the end of An Echo in the Bone. Young Joan MacKimmie, step-daughter of our beloved Jamie Fraser, heads to Paris to answer her calling and train to become a nun. Sent on her way with Jamie's nephew, Michael, they travel through the streets of Paris in a short and jam-packed story. While Joan seeks to make herself a bride of Christ, she wrestles with voices only she can hear, which offer both advic [...]

    8. 3.5 A quick, interesting listen. We get to know Joan and Micheal, as well as some other characters we've met before. I really liked the link between time-travelling and being snatched by fairies. As always the biggest reasons to listen to this series is the author's amazing sense of humour, her ability to to get me to really feel for the characters, and Davina's astonishing narration.

    9. Wow! I thought this would answer so many questions and it did answer some. But now I'm spinning with more questions than I started with! Can't wait to see where this all goes.

    10. As per usual, Herself has managed to do it again Left me with that aching void of "What's next?"' I can't wait another moment for book 8. In such a short novella she was able to raise so many new questions, bring to life characters you felt were forgotten, and piqued many questions of Claire. I loved the opportunity to learn more about Joan and Michael, and see the beginning of a new kinship as well as the impact of Claire's warning on Michael. This definitely was a kind segue into book 8, provi [...]

    11. I had to read this a couple of times, and I'm sure that I still missed a lot. This novella is packed full of useful Outlander series information. There are so many mysteries. This helps some with the blue color surrounding certain people and other things in the series. It also leads to so many new questions. The family tree is looking like everyone in the series is somehow connected. I admit I mostly focused on Jamie, Claire, Lord John, Brianna and Roger while reading the other books. I need to [...]

    12. huh?I mean, I love this series, and I am always happy for a little more time in the Outlander world, but what did I just read?I'm hoping that this has something to do with the plot in book 8, like a prologue or something, because as a stand alone, this novella is not only very thin, but unresolved for me. Honestly, I would have rather had the author spend her time getting book 8 and the conclusion of the story written and published, rather than spend the time on small side stories like this one, [...]

    13. Over the years, Diana Gabaldon has written a rich tapestry of supporting characters into the Outlander series. It took me a little while for my literary GPS to figure out where the two main characters of The Space Between fit into this tapestry. I can't say that I felt that I had the story exactly pinpointed. So, things started out a little on the slow side for me even for a novella.That said, the story does pick up and I did find it to be a fun and interesting read. Since the story is truly an [...]

    14. Note: this contains spoilers forAn Echo in the Bone.As with all of Gabaldon's books, there is a gaping error in the timeline.InAn Echo in the Bone, Jamie writes a letter dated March 20, 1778, and says that Michael and Joan have already left. In other words, they've left before March 20. This novella starts with their departure, but says June 1778. As I've said in all my reviews of her other books: huh????Also, the Comte St. Germain says "tabernac". But that's exclusively a Québecois word.

    15. 4.5*Was a good read finding out more about Master Raymond and the relationship between Joan and Michael that ensued.I struggled with the quickness of it all and bouncing from here to there but all and all enjoyable and informative.

    16. Not quite as good as the other novella, but still a really interesting addition to the series.

    17. A stunner! I would give this little book ten stars if I could. Not only is it beautifully written and completely absorbing but it's integral to the series storyline. Plus it's shocking. OMG, OMG.

    18. AVISO: SPOILERS DEL LIBRO 7Realmente ésta no es una historia que sea 100% necesario leer, ya que salvando un par de detalles que sospecho que se van a retomar en la saga principal, no afecta para nada a la trama general. La verdad es que si no fuera por los parentezcos y por las menciones que se hacen a Claire, Jamie y compañía, ésta bien podría ser una historia más dentro del mismo universo.En esta breve novelita seguimos a Joan (hija de Laoghaire) que está viajando a Francia para conver [...]

    19. For one of the many fans awaiting for the next Outlander installment this June, I was thankful for this short story to tide me over. If youre just starting this series, this novella will be a bit spoilerish.This fun gem follows Joan McKimmie, daughter of Laoghaire (pronounced "Leery", or as we fans like to call her, "Leg Hair") on her quest to quiet her inner demons.The stoy opens with Joan, accompanied on a ships passage to France by Michael Murray, Young Ian's brother.  Joan seems to be runni [...]

    20. I just finished re-reading The Space Between, a wonderful novella by Diana Gabaldon centered on two barely known characters from the Outlander series: Michael Murray (son of Jenny and Ian) and Joan MacKimmie (daughter of Laoghaire and stepdaughter of Jamie). The Space Between takes place soon after events introduced in An Echo in the Bone, and I can only assume that the events in The Space Between will be referenced in the upcoming 8th book in the Outlander series.Basically, this novella is a go [...]

    21. This is the first novella from the Outlander series I have read. While I enjoyed it,it took me a good while to get my bearings in the story.But it did all come together for me as I remembered some of the details from An Echo in the Bone. Joan McKimmie(step-daughter of Jaimie)is on her way to France to become a nun. She is accompanied by Michael Murray(Ian's older brother) for safekeeping.Once there, things get complicated very quickly for both her and Michael.This was a whirlwind of slightly les [...]

    22. Gabaldon is one of my favorite authors so it pains me to give this one star, but it was not much more than a confusing, half-baked story that didn't seem to have much point or resolution. I wouldn't be surprised if it were actually a mishmash of deleted scenes that she pasted together in order to have a novella for sale. I enjoyed her other novella about Roger's parents, but this one was not up to her usual standards, unfortunately. :(

    23. Picking up the story of Joan, as she leaves Scotland for her religious vocation, chaperoned by Ian Murray's son Michael, we see Paris (and Claire) through others' eyes as the plot twists and grows, expanding on hints from the main books to suddenly explode in a new direction.

    24. Once again, DG makes a great short story. I really felt it was important to read this before her next book. Michael, the son of Ian and Jenny is the main character in this book. So is Joan, the daughter of Leghair. I am really intrigued to see if this story wraps into MOBY.

    25. I think I have read this before but I forgot how much it reveals and yet doesn't reveal! A lot of questions answered and asked. Loved it.

    26. 1st read 7/7/15-7/8/15Giving the audiobook a whirl :-)Whoa! Way more than I was expecting!! An Outlander (after Echo but before MOBY) MUST READ!!
