Book Description

"Sarah Woodbury is my new favorite author. Daughter of Time reminds me of Outlander and 1632, with a fresh twist. I read all the books in the After Cilmeri series in four days! Long after I finished the last book, the stories and characters stayed in my mind, and I kept wishing I could return the world Sarah so skillfully created. I can't wait for the next book and the next ..." -- Debra Holland, New York Times bestselling author of the Montana Sky Series.
_________

Daughter of Time is appropriate for readers from young teens to adults and is a prequel to the After Cilmeri series:

A medieval man with an uncertain destiny, Llywelyn, the Prince of Wales, faces treachery and deceit at the hands of friends and foes alike ...

A modern woman with a troubled past, Meg's life is in tatters when she slips through time and into medieval Wales ...

Only by working together can Meg and Llywelyn navigate the shifting allegiances that threaten the very existence of Wales--and create their own history that defies the laws of time.

Other books in the series include Footsteps in Time, Winds of Time, Prince of Time, Crossroads in Time, Children of Time, Exiles in Time, Castaways in Time, and Ashes of Time.

***A note from the author: I am so happy to be able to share with you this prequel to the After Cilmeri series. I created Footsteps in Time and Prince of Time first, and only wrote Daughter of Time after so many readers wanted to know how the story began. Meg's journey is continued in Footsteps in Time and Winds of Time, a novella that is meant to be a companion to the series. Happy reading! -- Sarah

--From The Kindle Book Review:

While a time-travel romance, the relationship between Meg and Prince Llewlyn of Wales is not cliché. It's truly two people struggling to overcome their different backgrounds and the current political climate of 13th century Wales to follow their hearts. The completely fresh storyline of a Daughter of Time is one of the strongest aspects of this story.

Daughter of Time is a sweetheart style romance in that the sexual scenes take place off stage, and an enjoyable look at chivalry in a way that explains how functional it was for the time period, and not just a cliché romantic notion modern readers have about knights in shining armor.

Overall, I give this book 5 stars and recommend you grab a copy or at least download a sample for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweeping Historical Fantasy March 28, 2011
By Eille
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love medieval history, and I loved the blend of history, romance, and time-travel fantasy in this book. Meg is a young single mother of a two and a half year old girl. She's endured an abusive relationship with her now-dead husband, the father of her daughter, and has little reason to trust men or believe in romance--until she's hurled back through time to the court of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the last Prince of Wales. Coming from the future, Meg is able to warn Llywelyn of the dangers in store for him and help him navigate the complex politics of the time. I loved how historically based this book was and what a vivid picture it gave of the time period, but I think my favorite part was watching Meg grow as a character. Medieval Wales wasn't a place where women had great power--and yet it's in exactly this setting that Meg truly overcomes her past and grows into the strong, capable women she was meant to be. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

1.0 out of 5 stars ouch October 10, 2011

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have great respect for authors, as they put so much time and energy into such a great feat as writing books. Therefore, it is with great regret that I have to say that this book leaves much to be desired. I believe it had great prospects, as the idea of a modern, troubled woman traveling back in time with her toddler, only to meet up with a great historic figure - well, this really grabbed me. But the writing was so challenging. I managed to get 2/3 of the way through, and then I couldn't take it anymore. This book had a great start. In fact, I read the sample first, became quite intrigued, and then downloaded the book. But disappointment set in about 1/3 of the way through.

The dialogue was painful. There was no flow - it was inconsistent, confusing, and sometimes just made no sense. There were so many characters, with poor explanation of who they were - I had to look up the actual history on the internet just to figure out what the heck was happening. The chapters alternate between Meg's perspective, then Llywelyn's - which would have been interesting, except that Llywelyn's "thoughts" were laced with modern-day colloquialisms, much like Meg's- so I wasn't sure who was speaking. Llywelyn speaks of going to his "office." Did medieval princes really call it an "office?" Then later, when trying to correct Meg's way of addressing him, he states, "....if you can just tack `my lord' on there at the end...." Isn't that modern-day phrasing? I got so confused I wasn't sure if it was Meg or Llywelyn who traveled back in time.

Realism - there was none.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enticing Tale of Time Travel May 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
REVIEW by Geraldine Evans

DAUGHTER OF TIME a stand-alone novel in the world of the After Cilmeri Series. - A TIME TRAVEL NOVEL

I'll start by saying I've never read a time travel novel, so was half waiting for Dr Who to appear! Needless to say, he didn't, but a young widow named Meg and her daughter, Anna, did. Freed by the death of her husband from a violent marriage, Met and her daughter have gone out for the mundane buying of ice-cream when their car skids on some ice. When she wakes up, Meg finds she has flown through some kind of time curtain and is in thirteenth Century Wales, having been rescued from her swamp-sinking vehicle by Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the Prince of Wales himself. It doesn't take long for the pair to fall in love.

Thanks to her previous study of Welsh history Meg is able to save him from a premature death. They go through a peasant's form of plight-troth and become man and wife. But love can't conquer all, not in this world. Many dangers beset them from Llywelyn's jealous brother, Dafydd to warring Marcher lords, and which, through them, threaten Wales's very independence from an increasingly voracious England.

I very much enjoyed this book. I found Sarah Woodbury wove a telling tapestry of thirteenth Century Welsh royal life.. She had me caught up in the tale and in believing it is possible to pass through centuries to an earlier time. She has persuaded me to try more in this genre. Heartily recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Muddled Mess of the Middle Ages August 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is obviously the author's love letter to Wales, that much is obvious. Unfortunately, I didn't fall in love with this book. Not even much "in like" with it.

I like the concept, take an apparently beloved historical figure (and I Wiki'd him online because I'd never heard of him), Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Wales, and combine his story with a "romantic" tale of time travel.

The characters were flat and most of the time pretty uninteresting. They didn't change or grow. They were static and forgettable. The point of view shifted from chapter to chapter between Meg and Llyweln. I didn't have a problem with the first person narrative, but the pacing was pretty slow in many places, especially during the long diatribes about military strategy and planning. There were so many characters all with unpronounceable Welsh names, it was hard to keep them straight. Who was the main villain? What was the main conflict? I was lost after a while, there was just too much, but not enough. I didn't know where the author wanted my attention.

I don't see how this is classified as a romance. There were a couple of kisses. And literally, that's about all that was said about them, "he kissed me." I don't understand why these two people would want to be together, why the Prince of Wales, in the Middle Ages, would let a strange woman be privy to all his military strategy.

And the time travel aspect. Ugh. It felt like a gimmick. It didn't work. You could have cut out the entire time travel and have a more focused historical fiction novel. A young woman from the 1990's suddenly travels back in time to the Middle Ages. She's pretty accepting of everything, so are all the people she meets. She drives (drives!

More About the Author

With two historian parents, Sarah couldn't help but develop an interest in the past. She went on to get more than enough education herself (in anthropology) and began writing fiction when the stories in her head overflowed and demanded she let them out. While her ancestry is Welsh, she only visited Wales for the first time while in college. She has been in love with the country, language, and people ever since. She even convinced her husband to give all four of their children Welsh names.

With over 300,000 books sold, Sarah is the author of 16 novels and 2 novellas, all set in medieval Wales. She is currently working on the next novel in the After Cilmeri series.

She makes her home in Oregon.
