I am so excited to share with everyone my new book, Crossroads in Time, the third book in the After Cilmeri series.  Four and a half years in the making, I began it soon after I finished Prince of Time.  Life intervened in the writing process, however, and I only returned to it in 2011.  And had to delete everything I’d written up until then and start over :)

As a side note, I have only realized as I type this that I began this book again just a few weeks after the death of my father at the far too young age of 68.  And maybe that’s why Crossroads in Time is a story so close to my heart.  It’s meant to be FUN.  A fun, romantic read, following the adventures of David and Anna and their family and companions.  At the same time, it is also a story about parents, and children, and expectations, and honor and love, and all those things I’ve written into all of my books, but came to me so clearly in this one.  I love this book.  I hope you do to.  It is available in paperback and ebook in all formats.

Crossroads in Time

Three years have passed since the events chronicled in Prince of Time …

Anna has made a place for herself in thirteenth century Wales as a wife, mother, and healer.  David has taken more of the kingdom’s rule on his shoulders, even as his relationship with Lili has caused friction with his father, King Llywelyn.  The King wants his son to seek a political marriage that will benefit his country—and possibly place the crown of England on David’s head.

England and Wales have shared a border and an uneasy peace for three long years.

And that peace is about to be broken …

Crossroads in Time is available now!  Buy at  Amazon  Amazon UK  Smashwords  Paperback

It should arrive by May 1 at all other venues.  Meanwhile for Nook/Apple/Sony users, Crossroads in Time can be downloaded in epub format at Smashwords.

Review by: Wilson James on Feb. 14, 2011 : star star star star star
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.
