Overview

Daughter of Time is a prequel to the After Cilmeri Series, and is appropriate for young teens to adults.

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 readers 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 reading!

Editorial Reviews

Debra Holland
"Sarah Woodbury is my new favorite author. Daughter of Time reminds me of Outlander and 1632, with a fresh twist. I read all the books in the After Cilmeri series in four days! Long after I finished the last book, the stories and characters stayed in my mind, and I kept wishing I could return the world Sarah so skillfully created. I can't wait for the next book and the next ..." -- Debra Holland, New York Times bestselling author of the Montana Sky Series.
While a time-travel romance, the relationship between Meg and Prince Llewlyn of Wales is not cliché. It's truly two people struggling to overcome their different backgrounds and the current political climate of 13th century Wales to follow their hearts. The completely fresh storyline of a Daughter of Time is one of the strongest aspects of this story. Daughter of Time is a sweetheart style romance in that the sexual scenes take place off stage, and an enjoyable look at chivalry in a way that

I love medieval history, and I loved the blend of history, romance, and time-travel fantasy in this book. Meg is a young single mother of a two and a half year old girl. She's endured an abusive relationship with her now-dead husband, the father of her daughter, and has little reason to trust men or believe in romance--until she's hurled back through time to the court of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the last Prince of Wales. Coming from the future, Meg is able to warn Llywelyn of the dangers in store for him and help him navigate the complex politics of the time. I loved how historically based this book was and what a vivid picture it gave of the time period, but I think my favorite part was watching Meg grow as a character. Medieval Wales wasn't a place where women had great power--and yet it's in exactly this setting that Meg truly overcomes her past and grows into the strong, capable women she was meant to be. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

If you like Outlander or The Winter Sea you will love this. Halfway through this book, I bought the rest of the series. I loved it and hope she writes more of this series. There are no sex scenes, so you can share it with someone younger, but it doesn't seem like a kid's book. The characters and story are very well done.

This was another one of my books that I just happened to come across while searching for books to read on Barnes and Noble. It was a fabulous book to read and the story of time travel is always a favorite of mine. So this book was able to caputer me in both of my favorite areas of time travel and medeval times. I have gone on to purchase the next 2 books and am currently reading Footsteps in time which continues the story but with a different twist. Dont want to give away a spoilers so that others can read the books and find out for themselves. Great story and excellent writing.

This reads more like historical fiction than time travel romance. There is no real character development and almost no interaction between the main characters. No romance to speak of at all other than two quick kisses. The entire book I was thinking to myself that the author must have read and enjoyed the Outlander series and tried to duplicate it - but didn't seem up to the task.

This is one of the best time-travel fantasies I've read. I'm so glad there are two more books in the series!

EXCELLENT BOOK! EXCELLENT SERIES!! It is a good plot and has absolutely captivated my imagination. It was very interesting to see the thirteenth century through twenty-first century eyes. The characters really grabbed me.

Loved it. I recommend the series.

I spent many scenes nearish to the beginning exclaiming (aloud, to whoever was near) 'uh,that is totally not an okay way to react". The people are okay, the descriptions are okay. Nothing particularly stood out to me as awesome. I have no interest in reading the sequel.

I had high expectations from this book because of the positive reviews. The story was weak, character development poor, dialogue juvenile and there were so many "huh?'s" I thought I was missing something from the story, missing some kind of connection from one chapter to the next that I kept going back to re-read or find more complete paragraphs. I especially found the ending to be most ridiculous. I would say this is for the young teen set and adults should stay away.

Great book. Good from begining to end. Could not stop reading it. Look foward to the others in the series.

Dont understand all the 5 stars for this book. The main characters to me had no chemistry at all. And I sure didnt like all the weird names this author gave to her characters. I know the names were probably from welsh history but I still think the names should of been simpler. This could of been a really good book if it was more like a romance novel instead of a history lesson. There were no hot and steamy parts in this book AT ALL.  That being said, if the author would of wrote more about the main characters relationship instead of history it could of been good.

After about 300 pages of this book, the author is failing toendear the characters of the story to the reader as well as she could have. The distinct lack of intimacy among the characters makes it a so-so story. Even the lack of description to the daughter's personality in the beginning and thus far fails to give the reader a vested interest. The author is counting on time travel and the prince of Wales to keep the interest going. I'll finish it but won't look for the rest of the books.

This whole series was really great. I love time travel and medieval historical type novels so this fit the bill. Got the first one and before I'd gotten very far into it went and ordered the whole series. Have not been disappointed. I like to learn something as well as be entertained. Not loaded down with sex either, good story and does have romance. The only thing I did notice is the occasional errors not in spelling but in grammar, not horrific though and does not spoil the story. They could have used a little better proof reading. Would and have recommended to friends.

For a free download, i say this book is fantastic! I wish the author wrote more books in this series.

Bought the Audio Book narrated by Laurel Schroeder. She talks way too fast and in such a monotone that it is very unpleasant to listen to. The end of every sentence has the same inflection. Not a good voice for a storyteller, I am afraid! I didn't get past the first chapter because of her voice.

This is basically a poorly done rip off of Outlander. Save your money and read that one instead.

I hated the e nding. It leaves you hanging and wondering what just happened.Calling this a time travel romance is a huge stretch. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

Great book! I can't wait to read the other installments.
Whodunnit More than 1 year ago
Obviously, from the title reference, we are dealing with time travel. And if we can go along with that bizarre premise, we should be able to be relatively accepting of the ending. (And then we read the beginning of the second installment and here we go again!) It's not a bad read. It's very entertaining and it did pull me into the storyline and their relationships. I feel as if I can't really judge the book alone, because obviously there's more to the story and maybe everything wraps up more succinctly in the final book. But I don't know that I want to actually spend the time or money on another book in this storyline, because I fear I'll be disappointed.

An interesting idea - woman transported back in time becomes consort of historical figure, in this case a Welsh prince. Not well written or conceived enough to suspend belief and go along with it. Come on now, you hit a snowbank in the US and you and your car are transported back to medieval Wales? There is not a good reason why this woman was not dispensed with as a witch immediately, much less marries the leader who is precariously holding on to his warrior-chief status - a witch wife would be a really stupid move. Given that time travel fiction is an entertaining genre, one must still convince the reader that it might happen. This one needs a better grounding in actual history and psychology! Try Outlander or Household Gods as good examples of the genre instead.

This made no sense & I dumped it in the 1st chapter!!!!! Don't bother! I have no idea why this was given high ratings.

I loved this book. I read it on every break at work and in the evenings at home. I thought of the book between reading and felt a connection with the characters. BUT... I do not like the ending. It broke my heart and I cried. I don't think I will read the rest of the series because I don't know if I can bear to read more of the heartbreak.

Nice historical fiction.  Not my usual read but a good way to spend an icy weekend.  Not enough chemistry between the main couple and certainly no romance.  Probably won't read any more in the series.
