November 1146. Gwynedd is at war with Ranulf, Earl of Chester, who seeks to gain a foothold in Wales against the day peace finally comes to England. On the eve of King Owain's counter-assault on Mold Castle, the body of a woman who bears a striking resemblance to Gwen is discovered buried in someone else's grave. Even in the midst of war, murder must be investigated, and it falls to Gareth and Gwen to bring the guilty to justice.

I love the way Sarah Woodbury takes actual history and interweaves it with Gwen & Gareth and the other characters. The narrator does an excellent job with character voices, making it easy to follow along. I can’t wait to read the next one!!

With David and Llywelyn in Ireland, the rule of Wales and England has fallen to Math and Anna. Unbeknownst to them, however, rebellious barons have tried to assassinate David and thrown Ireland into civil war. When the treachery reaches across the sea and touches Anna, she finds herself at the center of a conspiracy that stretches from Dublin to Edinburgh - and only her actions and choices stand between her family and the destruction of everything they've worked so hard to build.

I love the After Cilmeri Series and everything Sarah Woodbury writes!! I have listened to this entire series and my only complaint with this one is the narrator has gotten too breathy, if that’s a word! I found myself distracted and having to go back and listen to sentences over because it bothered my so much to hear the little puff of air that ended every sentence. But the story is great, I love how these books flow & following the adventures of David, Anna & their family. Other than the breathiness, the narrator is fantastic, giving each character their own voice. It helps to keep track of who is talking and makes the listening very enjoyable. I will continue to buy every one that comes out!

Two years in Afghanistan; four years working for MI5, the British security service; and the death of both of his parents from cancer. At the age of 34, Callum thought he'd experienced the worst that life could throw at him. That was until his boss ordered him to open a buried file on his desk and to take it seriously. His new assignment: to detain and question a pregnant woman and her ailing husband - and, if need be, to stop them from returning to medieval Wales.

I love the After Cilmeri series! The cast of characters keep growing with every new book, and I love them all. Sarah Woodbury has a wonderful way of writing that weaves the new characters in with the old, as well as weaving factual history with the fictional. I'm always anxious for the next book in the series!!

Daughter of Time is a very enjoyable book by Sarah Woodbury. It is about a 20th century woman, Meg, and her small daughter, Anna, when they accidentally time travel back to 13th century Wales. There she meets Llywelyn, the Prince of Wales. The book is very entertaining in the way it weaves a lot of interesting factual history of Wales into the fictional storyline between Meg & Llywelyn. This is the first book of the After Cilmeri series, and once you have read this book you will be reading the rest! I have read them all and now am listening to them and enjoying learning the correct pronunciations for the Welsh words!
