Publisher's Summary

This is the story of Owain Glyndwr, the last Welsh Prince of Wales. In the year 1399, Welsh nobleman Owain Glyndwr is living out a peaceful gentleman's life in the Dee Valley of Wales with his wife Margaret and their eleven children. But when Henry of Bolingbroke usurps the throne of England from his cousin Richard II, that tranquility is forever shattered.
What starts as a feud with a neighboring English lord over a strip of land evolves into something greater - a fight for the very independence of Wales. After a harrowing encounter on the misty slopes of Cadair Idris, the English knight Harry Hotspur offers Owain a pact he cannot resist.
Peace, however, comes with a heavy price. As tragedies mount and temptations loom, Owain questions whether he can fulfill the prophecies and lead his people to freedom without destroying those around him. For centuries, the bards have sung of King Arthur's return, but is this reluctant warrior prince the answer to those prophecies?

Great Historical Fiction - Very sad story

This was a very detailed section of history that I hadn't read much about. Very engaging but very sad story. The narrator was excellent.

Amazing history!

An incredible tale! As a reader of Tudor history, I was fascinated by how the subject of this books life was so closely tied to the lords, ladies and even kings I have so enjoyed reading & learning about. The narrator's voice and accent pulled me back through the centuries; to those times and places. A totally enjoyable read for any lover of history.
