November 1291. Meg and Llywelyn gather their family at Rhuddlan Castle to celebrate their seventh anniversary and David's 23rd birthday. But the joyful reunion goes grievously awry when an old enemy raises the banner of rebellion, followed immediately by an even more catastrophic betrayal by an old friend. Meanwhile, facing war at every turn and still haunted by his decision to leave Cassie and Callum in the modern world, David chooses a dangerous path forward, one that will either change the course of the future forever or burn his world to ashes.

It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed, and it's the worst day of her life....Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit. She tries to convince everyone she's fine--despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again.

With a scarlet-fever epidemic raging throughout London, a rogue baron on the loose, a new baby keeping him up at night, and a kingdom to run, the last thing David has time for is a trip to the 21st century. But as he should know by now, time waits for no man, not even the king of England.

I loved this book like all the rest in the series. Sarah has written a wonderful series.

The most memorable moment for me is close to the end when David has to leave Cassie and Calum behind. He didn't want to leave them but they knew he had to. It shows how much he cares for his friends and family.

As always I think Laurel nailed the narrating perfectly.

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.

Anna has made a place for herself in 13th century Wales as a wife, mother, and healer. David has taken more of the kingdom's rule on his shoulders, even as his relationship with Lili has caused friction with his father, King Llywelyn. The King wants his son to seek a political marriage that will benefit his country - and possibly place the crown of England on David's head.

In December of 1282, English soldiers ambushed and murdered Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the Prince of Wales. His death marked the end of Wales as an independent nation and the beginning of over seven hundred years under the English boot. < Footsteps in Time is the story of what might have happened had Llywelyn lived. And what happens to the two teenagers who save him.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would. This was a well written and read story. I got just as involved as if I were reading myself maybe more so since the woman reading it uses accents I would attribute to these characters but do not use myself.

What other book might you compare Footsteps in Time: A Time Travel Fantasy to and why?

I am not sure I can compare this book to another because it is unique unless I compare it to others in the series. This is a well done story that I feel apart of whether reading or listening to it.

Have you listened to any of Laurel Schroeder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is a wonderful performer and her voice is soothing to listen to. She does really well for this series whether reading as a man, woman, or child.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think my favorite moment was when Bronwin realized that she actually was in 13th century Wales.
