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.

She makes her home in Oregon.

Customer Reviews

When I was reading this book, it was hard to put down.
Debra
The time travel aspect adds a new element to the usual historical fiction, and I loved how the characters completely embraced their new world.
Lily Klein
Interesting characters, good story line and good discription of the countryside.

I like this series..it keeps me coming back for more. I love time travel and historic romance books. There is one that needs to be read out of order, I think. Winds Of Time might be better read before Footsteps in Time...Totally personal preference. I like that first book was free and the rest are so reasonable on KINDLE. I know that's a selling ploy, but I will gladly take it. Keep em coming!!

"Footsteps in Time" is something I found browsing the internet and was not one of the many books I receive as the Book Review Editor for Ninnau. I am a fan of alternate history novels and this one ties that theme into Welsh history, again a major interest. And quite nicely done I may add.
Sarah Woodbury has written three novels on a level for young adults called the "After Cilmeri" series. While written "for young adults" the writing is on a level that even the "elderly" (like myself) can enjoy. "Footsteps in Time" is the first in this series. Ms. Woodbury has written other novels with a Welsh theme as well including a series on King Arthur, one of which I have and will get to shortly.
The book opens with two American teenagers who live near Bryn Mawr, Pennsylania, driving through a snowstorm and plowing through a huge snow drift which forces them off the road - and into a group of English horsemen near Cilmeri in 1282 thus saving the life of Prince Llywelyn ap Gruffydd who was treacherously murdered there in our own historical timeline. And the plot thickens....but I don't like to be a spoiler when reviewing novels, so I will leave it to the readers of Ninnau to get a copy and find out themselves.
The beginning of the novel reminds me of the science fiction book "Lest Darkness Fall" by L. Sprague de Camp written in 1939. Like Mr. De Camp the author has a good knowledge of the period (in his case Gothic Rome) she is writing about and not "making it up" as she goes. There can also be a danger in this genre of the "future characters" overwhelming the unsuspecting locals with the marvels of their time. Ms. Woodbury is careful to control this inclination. One of her characters comments, "We all have the same problem. There's a limit to the changes we can make.

This is a wonderful story! It has a great beginning which immediately hooks the reader. The characters are likable and believable; a brother and sister who are complex and full characters. This book will appeal to both girls and boys! Fast-paced and interesting plot. Wonderful historical fiction with historically accurate settings and events. How would a current day youth adapt to life in medieval Wales and end up changing the future? I am a middle school Language Arts teacher, and I know my students will love reading this book! Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

I loved the first book in this story and was looking forward to reading more, I got about halfway through and I cant bare to read any more.

the story isn't necessarily bad but it feels like it flips between first person and 3rd person or something. I will try to explain what i mean if i can...

***possible spoilers****

Llywelyn finally tells David he is his dad, a fact that David never knew. ok, cool, but then Llywelyn is referred to as 'father' and 'papa' from now on. now you wouldn't think this is jarring but the way it is done is. if it were from the point of view of David or Anna I would understand, but its the sort of none/narrator person speaking. it isn't dialogue and its not from Davids point of view as he is referred to in the same paragraph.

things like "although father had been prepared to defend it, Edward didn't appear to know the location of this ford. David settled in his saddle to wait for the company to reassemble" maybe not the best example... but you get what I mean?

oh man I'm doing a terrible job of explaining myself. I'm not good with writing terminology.

I also found it a forced thing since he only just found out after like 15 years that this person is his father and next thing you know he is referred to as 'father' and 'papa', sorry but you don't get into those affectionate titles that fast, its something earned and grown in time. it also comes across a bit juvenile.

I hope ppl understand what I'm trying to say. I really liked the prequel story and the story isn't bad its just this one thing with the perspective that has made me cringe each time its done and made e abandon it and read something else. pity since I was so into the first one and paid for this one on faith.

A few gaffes don't ruin a book. I've changed the location and names of characters and inadvertently left a couple of the old names behind. Caught them eventually because of that newfangled search/replace feature on most word processors.

Other than that I really enjoyed this book. The history is obviously well done, and the writing is great overall.

I'd recommend it to anybody who likes historical. It even has a bit of romance, but I wouldn't put it in that subgenre.

Because of the Sarah's adherence to history, I did get a bit put out by the subjugation of Anna and Meg to less-than-person status. While totally true in an historical sense, I would have preferred to see the women retain their personhood a bit more, maybe start the woment's liberation movement of the 13th Century.

That's a very minor nitpick, however. The book mainly follows Anna's brother, David (Daffyd) and he steps up to his new role in the 13th C. Welsh world.

Anything more, and I'd have to warn of spoilers.
