Honor. That’s a word not often used today, in 2011. Honor, however, was one of the only things that American teenagers David and Anna took with them in their time travel to medieval Wales. Honor also describes the way in which Prince Llywelyn ap Gruffydd lived his life as the ruler of Wales in 1282.

The best way to describe FOOTSTEPS IN TIME? An amazing tale of adventure, daring exploits, loyalty, and courage all wrapped up in a time travel young adult fiction story. This book was enjoyable from beginning to end, as it has plenty of action mixed with a truly remarkable degree of realism of life in 13th century Wales.

Based upon actual events, the premise for FOOTSTEPS IN TIME is based upon the question, “What would have happened if Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, Prince of Wales, had not died in December 1282?”

This account weaves a remarkable narrative as it follows teen siblings David and Anna in their attempts to cope on their own in a society where it appears the most advanced technology is how to make a high-quality sword.

Authors generally do best if they write what they know. There is no question that author Sarah Woodbury knows the times of Edward I of England and Llywelyn, Prince of Wales, from what undoubtedly must have been a lot of research. What’s more, FOOTSTEPS IN TIME is a very solid and well-written fiction story, with well-developed characters along with vivid descriptions that put the reader right into the action.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I’m eager to read the next in the saga (Prince of Time). This is truly a great story, for Young Adults, or for anyone.
