    1. WHAT THE EVERLIVING FUCK WAS THAT.Please excuse me, because I'm about to rage out.The title - the freaking title - of this book is "Daughter of Time: A Time Travel Romance", so you'd think the romance would be important, right? No. Not really. This book feels like an excuse for the author to show us how knowledgeable she is about 13th century Welsh skirmishes. It's constantly the Prince of Wales going to meet this guy, then that guy, then walking into a trap, then meeting another guy before walk [...]

    2. After completing this book, I looked over some of the reviews and felt compelled to justify my point of view, so here it is! Sure, Meg is a pretty static protagonist. However, she isn't as bad as most protagonists in YA novels. I enjoyed the originality of the plot more than the writing style of Sarah Woodbury, which I might add needed some development. It would be easier to list what I liked about this book, so here goes:- I loved that the author did not make her "magically" know the language.- [...]

    3. This was an Daily free deal and I'm super glad I picked it up at that time.This is very much a love story over a romance as all the sex (even much more than hand holding) happens off page, but the love story is solid. There are two huge Deus Ex Machina at play, both what puts Meg in the past and a later one of spoilers. Meg is a believable character and I enjoyed her reaction to time travel without warning. She goes through I think a lot of what a modern woman would do when confronted with such [...]

    4. This book is obviously the author's love letter to Wales. Unfortunately, I didn't fall in love with this book. Not even much "in like" with it.I like the concept, take an apparently beloved historical figure (and I Wiki'd him online because I'd never heard of him), Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Wales, and combine his story with a "romantic" tale of time travel.The characters were flat and most of the time pretty uninteresting. They didn't change or grow. They were static and forgettable. The poi [...]

    5. Love this book! Yes, it's a time travel sweetheart romance, and you do need to suspend your belief a bit. One of the biggest criticisms I've seen is the lack of explanation for the time travel, but I LIKED this. To me, it was a hiccough in time, got it, and I liked feeling a little confused as I'm sure the main character, MEG, was when she suddenly went from dying in a car accident to 13th century Wales.I'm now on like book 4 of the After Climeri series which is the follow up. I highly recommend [...]

    6. I picked this book because it was free and it was something I usually don't read, just to change it up. But as soon as I started this book I could not put it down. I fell in love with Meg and Llywelyn. The end had me wanting more, I can't say anymore without spoiling the ending. For some who were familiar with the story it is obvious since this is a prequel of a book, but I had never heard of it so the ending was not expected for me, maybe somewhat since the time travel is in there from the star [...]

    7. This book's descriptions promises an exciting, romantic adventure novel. Needless to say, it fails to deliver.Time travel fascinates me. Give me a book, tell me it's about someone ending up in another era, and I'll read it without question. That and the fact that this book was free cemented my decision to read it.Meg has just escaped an abusive marriage with her two-year-old daughter. Her husband, Trevor, died in a drunk driving accident. (He had become alcoholic while battling cancer.) Sometime [...]

    8. I enjoyed how Meg reacted to time travel without warning. If it were me I would probably freak out but then enjoy it. The Prince of Wales was a loveable alpha male. It was a good book but definitely need to read the next book to see what happens next.

    9. I really enjoyed this book along with Footsteps in Time & Prince of time. I am not sure why it is listed as book #3 it should be book 1.It's a time travel/historical romance with a twist. The description of Wales was beautifully done. I liked the characters and the way they interacted with each other. Sarah Woodbury did a great job of showing the love between Llywelyn and Meg without being smutty.She also did a really good job blending the 13th and 20th century together. It was just really a [...]

    10. While I did enjoy the story and the characters, I listened to the audio version. The author uses I said, he said, she said all the characters said way too often for an audio book, so I found it very annoying. Also at times, the dialogue, especially for the prince was too modern. If I had time to read instead of listen, I would probably continue the series. Happy reading!

    11. I happen to love Time travel stories and this one was pretty good. There is no real explanation for why Meg got transported to 1282 Wales, but as she was driving her car in a storm, just before impact, in what might have been a fatal crash, her car just leaps through time and drops her there. Most time travel stories I've read, don't have to deal with the artifacts that are brought along as much as this book. It is one thing to get some more appropriate clothes, but quite another to hide a car! [...]

    12. This had all the parts to it to make this a good story and worth the read. However, there were lots of really boring parts while foundations were laid to further the plot. Then the author committed THE Cardinal Sin as far as I'm concerned and had a really crappy ending, with the intent to fix it all in another book. I wont be sucked in that way unless the book is fantastic like a Harry Potter or the like. But even those books can stand on their ownis one cannot. So sadly, it's a passable story w [...]

    13. Just started this and am wondering how a twenty-first century woman with schoolgirl French would be able to communicate with a Welsh prince with medieval French. Apparently she could understand it despite the 'odd accent', and speak quite fluently. This kind of thing really pulls me out of time travel. I love time travel books that address the DIFFICULTY of communicating, not knowing the customs, etc. Like Jack Finney's Time and Again and Michael Crichton's Timeline. Anyway I'll keep at it for n [...]

    14. Time travel is one of my favourite genres, so this appealed to me and just what I needed it seemed. I would have given this story 4 stars, but I guess I was in a bit of a picky mood when I read a 12th century Welshman using the word "bugs" for insects. Granted that it was a tricky one, because the word bugs had no use in the English language until around the 15th century and the word Insects even later. Anyway I will stop being a picky and say that I liked the story.Meg has been through a diffi [...]

    15. Recently widowed Meg was the victim of spousal abuse. Trevor, her deceased husband, was gone but not forgotten. Thoughts of him were on her mind as she approached the place of his demise on a cold winter’s day when the roads were treacherously slippery with ice. Despite her caution, her car slid out of control, sending her and her daughter Anna off the road and into a ravine. This was the catalyst that took them back into time. Llywelyn, Prince of Wales, was on the ramparts of one of his many [...]

    16. Meg is a young mother whose abusive husband has just been killed in a car accident. Not long after she is free, she and her daughter, Anna, find themselves transported to medieval Wales and Llywelyn ap Gruffydd's (last prince of Wales) court. Meg eventually makes her peace with where and when she finds herself and eventually falls in love with Llywelyn. Told in alternating points of view between Meg and Llywelyn, what happens when a doomed prince meets a woman who can tell him his future?I am a [...]

    17. I started reading this book and thought, eh, I'm not going to like this. A young mother with a toddler and an abusive now dead husband who she is relieved got killed. Way too much baggage to begin a romance novel with, and I thought "Oh no, we're going to keep this theme and hear her whining about being weak through this whole book." This was sooooo not the case.We read a couple of pages setting up her current situation, maybe 3 pages. And for the rest of the book, it may be mentioned a few more [...]

    18. Okay, I am a total sucker for time travel books -- and those with heroes with heroes that are . . . heroes in the true sense of the word. This may not be classic literature, but as a romance it pushed all the right buttons without going too far into the areas that make me uncomfortable.It also had a lot of action and adventure. There were some things that stretched the believability test, but I think that's true of all time travel books. You have to walk out with a little faith when you decide t [...]

    19. I really enjoyed this book! I would call it an "Outlander" type without the 'sexy-time'! :) I love any/all/most time travel booksmance thrown in can be a plus, but I like the gals who get to go back and see what it was really all about. This one was no different. It gave me what I wanted.Girl has some minor troubles (or major depending on your thoughts), girl heads to ice-cream shop with daughter, girl finds worm-hole through time and lands in medieval Wales! Sweet! I love the interaction betwee [...]

    20. Wow!! I loved this story! I have read so many historical romances, but never one this tender and fantastic. I haven't studied the history of Wales, for some silly reason. I know so much about the rest of Europe and the British Isles during the time frame of this book, and now I am hooked into reading about Wales. I think it makes it all the more interesting to me since I live in the area of PA that the book starts in.This is the best historical romance I have read in ages! I don't want to give a [...]

    21. Just so well done all round - engaging, flawless writing, thoroughly researched foundation, great characters, pace, plot. Will be reading more Sarah Woodbury!P.S. I see a few reviewers have failed to appreciate a good book when they find one. I think that the authora) has been bold enough to diverge from the mainstream (*cough, cough, lemming*) stampede to draft, style and plot her story in a way completely appropriate to the setting;b) has written to a high standard of English, which some would [...]

    22. This is a review after reading through book 10 of this series.Something about this time travel series really captured my imagination and it was not hard in the least to blow through to book 10! Very well written, both in terms of characters, setting and history, it very refreshingly unique. The books take place in the modern day US and both modern and medieval Wales, and have the added distinction of time travelers not afraid to change or influence the future. The ever expanding cast of characte [...]

    23. This was a free Kindle book so my expectations were not very high, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a time travel romance leaning toward the romance, but it is also a bit of historical fiction. Meg and her daughter are involved in a auto accident that propels them back to the Middle Ages and 13th century Wales, and right into the arms of Llywelyn, the Prince of Wales. The book was well written and a nice piece of light reading, and you can't beat the price.

    24. I really enjoyed this book. The author told the story from both of the main character's point of view, alternating the storyteller with each chapter. It seems like it would be awkward, but it worked. As soon as I finished this book, I immediately bought book two.

    25. I got the free Kindle version of this, which is always sort of a hit and miss venture. The risk just keeps me coming back, though. Like gambling! Sweet, literary gambling.Anyway, I started this book with fairly low/ambiguous expectations, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised! The simplest way to sum up how I felt about it is to do the what I liked/what I didn't like bit. So, behold:What I liked:1. The characters--even though they were in a fantastical situation, everyone was pretty beli [...]

    26. I do like time travel books and this romance was written pretty well. Meg is thrown with her daughter by car into the past, into the time of knights and kings into Wales and the Middle Ages. It helps that she had a Mom who used to sing her songs of tales of long lost Wales so she knows some of the history surrounding the Prince of Wales Llywelyn whom she falls in love with. Does she want to or can she go back home? You'll have to read the book to find out. I found it to be a fun tale!Here is the [...]

    27. My fascination with time made me read this book. Meg, a 20ish widow and her daughter are in a car accident and somehow (car and all) slip back into 13th Century Wales. She is rescued by Llywelyn ap Grulfydd, the last sovereign Prince of Wales and from then on, it reads like a historical novel. I would not go so far as to say it is a romance, because there are no bated breath, bodice ripping scenes (and that is a very good thing.) The time travel gimmick probably did not need to be used, at all. [...]

    28. I got this free from . I love time travel novels. They are so much fun. I like to think about what I would do in the situation the character finds themselves. This book was a little frustrating in parts because I definitely would have done something different. But the main character, Meg, was cute. I really liked how Woodbury brought Welsh into the book. I felt she grasped the culture, especially since she added a lot of the language. There is a pronunciation guide, which was helpful. There is s [...]

    29. I got this free from the iBook store. I don't normally rate the free books I grab there because frankly they generally aren't worth it. However, I'm rating this one because it had so much potential and could have been really good.Readers of the Outlander series would probably be drawn to the description of this book. Time-traveling, a love story. It has all the goods. But while Outlander has its own fair share of issues, it does not fail to capture the emotional attachment of the reader. At leas [...]
