Publisher's Summary

Daughter of Time is appropriate for listeners 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.

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 listeners 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 listening!

A Welsh-fluent reader makes the difference

I have read and reread this book as an ebook. I enjoy the story thoroughly!
What I was not expecting from the audio book is that the performer's correct pronunciation of Welsh names and use of a Welsh accent for Welsh characters made the book come alive in a new way for me.
I highly recommend this book to other lovers of both fantasy and historical fiction!

Pleasantly Surprised. Better Than I Expected !

I really liked this story way more than I thought I would. It’s labeled a “prequel”, but if you haven’t read/listened to any of the “After Cilmeri” series, you’re in luck, as its even better to start here.

The story of Meg and Prince Llywelyn is well crafted, often deep, often humorous and a good romp. Don’t let all the history throw you, just go with it. Knowing the exact historical events is not necessary to follow the plot and enjoy the book. Each character becomes more and more interesting as the story goes on. And yes, the first person narrative switches between Meg and Prince Llywelyn, but you get used to that quite quickly and it just plain works. I found the narration a bit fast paced in the beginning, but gets easier to understand after a couple of chapters in.

I’ll give you another little hint: When you get to the end of this book and long for the story to continue, no worries, as the next book, “Footsteps in Time” is even better! The narration on that audiobook is smoother paced. Go ahead and treat yourself, this series is a pleasant surprise.

History Woven into Romance!

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!

Held my attention!

Listen to audio in my car, and this one was intriguing enough that I stayed there long after I got home! The history and culture mixed with time travel is thought provoking!

Another great read

Wow another great book by a fantastic author. You make the story come alive and I'm addicted to audible now. I really love listening to someone read to me. I get a great appreciation of what is going on and a great understanding of the different languages. Love this story and can't wait for the next.

Wosrt Welsh accent I've ever heard..

Worst Welsh accent I've ever heard. It sounds more Asian than Welsh. Some modern words used that shouldn't be.

I really wanted to like it but.....

I couldn't! The story was unrealistic, almost childlike and lacked depth to the characters, which made it boring. Having paid for it, I followed the superficial characters through to the end but I felt like it was endured rather than enjoyed. I listened to the audio book an the reader insisted on attempting the Welsh accent, which was so awful it distracted from the already thin story and made it even less believable. The very fake accent was a cross between Irish and Scottish with an American undertone. If this had been included in the sample I would never have purchased the book, that's for sure! I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, but this was pretty terrible I'm sorry to say. a little more research & character development would go a long way to improving a promising idea

Weak plot, poor authorship and narrating

What disappointed you about Daughter of Time: A Time Travel Romance?

After being recommended as a good book to read during Droughtlander, however I was bored and disinterested due to the repetition and lack of skilled authorship.

What was most disappointing about Sarah Woodbury’s story?

Poor quality of storytelling, with gaps in the details, kept me wondering too often, and lacked variety during conversations.

What didn’t you like about Laurel Schroeder’s performance?

She didn't keep my interest, lacked expression and variety in character voices.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Not recommended for anyone who loved the Outlander series, pales by comparison.

Awful narration

Story is ordinary, narration is awful. The author misses the chance to describe emotions and glosses over events way too quickly. I also felt the language used was a bit too modern for the period it is set in. A bit of fluff and minimal substance.

Accents are shocking

At first I wanted to return this book. The welsh accent was so bad it offended me. The storyline however kept me going and I'm glad I persevered
