Daughter of Time is a time travel story in which a woman of Welsh descent is thrown back in time with her toddler daughter. Now while I liked this book, mostly because I lived in Wales as a child, the book did present a few minor difficulties. One of the difficulties, naturally, is pronouncing the names of the Welsh characters, although this author wisely provided a pronunciation chart at the beginning of the book. In my review, I'm not going to bother to name them, because it's just simply too hard for me.
Whilst this book is promoted as a romance, I didn't find it so. It is, however, an enjoyable story with a rather pleasant literary feel to it. My only other problem worth mentioning in this story, was the amount of history the heroine knew of her love interest. It may have been explained in the story well enough, I really didn't buy into it. To me it just seemed a little too convenient for the heroine to have a history loving mother and the ability to remember the date of the death of the last great Prince of Wales.
But in considering the literary feel to the book, I did enjoy the author's exploration of death, murder, battles, and all the emotions these things evoke.
I was a little disappointed in how the story ended, and found it to to be a little too convenient. I also felt it was rather abrupt and some of the words used sounded too modern for 13th century characters. In my opinion, regardless of whether or not there are continuing novels, novels should be wrapped up a little bit more neatly. But in the literary sense, one could say the ending was satisfactory.
Do I recommend this book? Yes, if you love history, especially Welsh history. Yes, if you enjoy books that are not too overly 'literary', nor too romantic. If you have trouble dealing with Welsh names, don't give up on this book. Just do what I do, create a similar name for the character and in your mind switch it.

A great book even without a happy ending. The characters are well written and I liked the time travelling element in it.

I really enjoyed this book. The story moved well and the characters and descriptions were believable.

My one quibble is that the scenes with Meg before she believes that she really has travelled in time seemed repetitive. Every time she was exposed to a new character the author would include her thought that someone else was involved in creating an illusion. Once Meg realized that she really had travelled in time, the pace of the story picked up.
(Note: I read this after reading the other books in the After Cilmeri series, so I already knew those books that Meg really had travelled in time. It's possible that if I had read this first I might have been more patient with Meg's repeated denials.)
