I have read and reread this book as an ebook. I enjoy the story thoroughly!
What I was not expecting from the audio book is that the performer's correct pronunciation of Welsh names and use of a Welsh accent for Welsh characters made the book come alive in a new way for me.
I highly recommend this book to other lovers of both fantasy and historical fiction!

Loved the history and the accents the narrator used. Off to the next book in the series!

Worst Welsh accent I've ever heard. It sounds more Asian than Welsh. Some modern words used that shouldn't be.
I couldn't! The story was unrealistic, almost childlike and lacked depth to the characters, which made it boring. Having paid for it, I followed the superficial characters through to the end but I felt like it was endured rather than enjoyed. I listened to the audio book an the reader insisted on attempting the Welsh accent, which was so awful it distracted from the already thin story and made it even less believable. The very fake accent was a cross between Irish and Scottish with an American undertone. If this had been included in the sample I would never have purchased the book, that's for sure! I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, but this was pretty terrible I'm sorry to say. a little more research & character development would go a long way to improving a promising idea
What disappointed you about Daughter of Time: A Time Travel Romance?
After being recommended as a good book to read during Droughtlander, however I was bored and disinterested due to the repetition and lack of skilled authorship.
What was most disappointing about Sarah Woodbury’s story?
Poor quality of storytelling, with gaps in the details, kept me wondering too often, and lacked variety during conversations.
What didn’t you like about Laurel Schroeder’s performance?
She didn't keep my interest, lacked expression and variety in character voices.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Not recommended for anyone who loved the Outlander series, pales by comparison.
Story is ordinary, narration is awful. The author misses the chance to describe emotions and glosses over events way too quickly. I also felt the language used was a bit too modern for the period it is set in. A bit of fluff and minimal substance.
