The Bard’s Daughter is a 22,000 word prequel novella to the Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mysteries:

As a bard’s daughter, Gwen has spent her life traveling from castle to castle and village to village with her family, following the music. In the winter of 1141, Gwen’s family is contracted to provide the entertainment for the coming-of-age celebration of a lord's son. But before the celebration can begin, Gwen’s father is found over the body of his friend, with a harp string as the murder weapon and blood on his hands.

With the lord of the castle uninterested in finding the true killer, it is up to Gwen to clear her father’s name before her father’s music is silenced … forever.

Meet the Author

With two historian parents, Sarah couldn't help but develop an interest in the past. She went on to get more than enough education herself (in anthropology) and began writing fiction when the stories in her head overflowed and demanded she let them out. While her ancestry is Welsh, she only visited Wales for the first time while in college. She has been in love with the country, language, and people ever since. She even convinced her husband to give all four of their children Welsh names. With 400,000 books sold, Sarah is the author of 21 novels and 5 novellas, all set in medieval Wales. She makes her home in Oregon.

Sarah Woodbury is becoming a favorite not only for her excellent storytelling but for her ability to masterfully describe a world so unfamiliar to us. For those who enjoy historical fiction, this story transports you into a medieval time you can almost experience for yourself.

This book is a prequel to the "Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mystery" series. It is geared toward the "tween" reader. Although it has a two page guide to pronunciation, the names tend to slow the reader. An OK read.

I did enjoy the book, though I wasn't exactly happy with the ending. I realize there are/will be more books in this series, so I suppose the ending was a lead to the next. I will read the next book as well.

Started this as a free Nook into to the author. My, am I hooked on her books. Read all of this series within 2 weeks and am now on the time travel series. Interesting in that she gives you a view of life in 12th century Wales, including how both rich and poor lived. Highly recommend both series.

I enjoyed being introduced to this new character. "The Bard's Daughter" is a new twist in sleuthing. Set in medieval times, Gwen has to find the true killer or watch her father be put to death.
