I was in the mood for a good time travel story so I dug this one out of my book stash on Kindle.

Category: Adult Fiction, 335 pages
Genre: Historical Fiction / Time Travel
Publisher: The Morgan-Stanwood Publishing Group

Time travel to medieval Wales ... 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.

I've had this book on my Kindle and have wanted to read it for quite a while. So when I was in the mood for time travel and pure escapism, I decided to read it. Although its original book cover paints this book as a romance, and yes, there is romance, it's truly more the story of the imagined life of Llywelyn, the last Prince of Wales. So this new book cover is better suited to the story.
I enjoyed Daughter of Time very much, especially Meg and her toddler Anna's journey through time. Actually, little Anna was one of my favorite characters. She and Meg end up traveling to the 13th century and get found by Llywelyn. Yes, Meg and Llywelyn fall in love but a lot of the romance is off-screen so this makes it different from most time travel romances out there.
The medieval politics, as expected, was filled with treachery, land wars, and a battle-scarred hero. Sometimes, it was a little hard to follow. But lovers of medieval historical fiction will enjoy learning about Welsh history. The ending was unexpected, not a cliffhanger, but certainly, an exciting segway to the next book in the series.
For fans of time travel and chivalrous medieval tales, Daughter of Time is a great start to a fun series set during a pivotal period in English history.
Disclosure: I bought this on Amazon. I was not told how to rate or review this product.
