In the year 1143 King Owain intends to marry his daughter Elen to King Anarawd. Unfortunately Anarawd is killed on the way to the wedding. So Hywel, son of Owain sends Sir Gareth, and his spy Gwen, to seek the truth. An enjoyable mystery, and I look forward to reading more of their exploits. Read full review

About the author (2011)

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 over a million books sold, Sarah is the author of over forty novels, all set in medieval Wales.

She makes her home in Oregon.
