Publisher's Summary

King Edward of England looks to secure his annexation of Wales and resolves to put the heir to Gwynedd's throne, the orphaned infant Princess, Gwenllian, out of mind, secure and forgotten in a Lincolnshire Priory. The lady Rowena, ever loyal, undergoes many an ordeal to find, comfort, and protect the miserable child, whose real identity has been cruelly kept from her. 

Eighteen years later when the King conceives a plan to settle any question of Welsh succession and news of the Princess leaks to those who would free her, Rowena finds herself faced with the most agonizing of choices.

I wish there was an option for zero stars.

If the narrator mispronouncing many words commonly used in historical fiction (a few examples include: Bosom, Vassal, Tithe, Carrel) doesn’t have you ditching this book for a refund, the horrible plot line will.

If you enjoy books about nuns tormenting other nuns over and over as the main plot line, then this is the book for you.

I kept trying to stick with it as it is an interesting period in history, but with three hours still to go I just could not keep going with this terrible audio book.

Please get the narrator and the editors of this audio book a dictionary. If you don’t know what a word means or how to say it, look it up, don’t just guess and guess so very badly.

Fantastic From Start To Finish!!!

What a wonderfully crafted story and narration to boot.
The different character voices kept me entertained and Rowena's courage and determination were heart rending.
Superb narration. Congratulations to both Mr. Holden White and Jim Byrne for taking me on a thoroughly brilliant journey.
