The After Cilmeri Series

“Sarah Woodbury is my new favorite author. Daughter of Time reminds me of Outlander and 1632, with a fresh twist. I read all the books in the After Cilmeri series in four days! Long after I finished the last book, the stories and characters stayed in my mind, and I kept wishing I could return the world Sarah so skillfully created. I can’t wait for the next book and the next …” 
 — Debra Holland, New York Times bestselling author of the Montana Sky Series.

Daughter of Time (Prequel)

Daughter Time blogA medieval man with an uncertain destiny, Llywelyn, the Prince of Wales, faces treachery and deceit at the hands of friends and foes alike …

A modern woman with a troubled past, Meg’s life is in tatters when she slips through time and into medieval Wales …

Only by working together can Meg and Llywelyn navigate the shifting allegiances that threaten the very existence of Wales–and create their own history that defies the laws of time.

Daughter of Time is appropriate for readers from young teens to adults and is a prequel to the After Cilmeri series.

**A note from Sarah: I am so happy to be able to share with you this prequel to the After Cilmeri series. I created Footsteps in Time and Prince of Time first, and only wrote Daughter of Time after so many readers wanted to know how the story began. Meg’s journey is continued in Footsteps in Time and Winds of Time, a novella that is meant to be a companion to the series. Happy reading!

Winds of Time (A Novella)

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00055]Winds of Time is a 20,000 word (100 page) novella from the After Cilmeri series:

Meg had thought that taking a commuter flight from Pasco, Washington to Boise, Idaho would be a simple matter. But nothing is simple for Meg when it comes to travel, and especially not when she finds herself in the Middle Ages again instead of in a plane crash on a mountain side in Oregon.

And when the pilot takes off without her in a quest to return to the twenty-first century, Meg will need every last bit of maturity and knowledge she gained in the sixteen years she spent in the modern world—-to survive even a day in this one.

**A note from Sarah:  This story was started many years ago, as part of Footsteps in Time.  When it came down to it, however, the story didn’t fit with what was happening with David and Anna, and had to be put aside.  Happily, I am now able to share, in ebook form, the story of Meg’s return to the Middle Ages.  Thus, Winds of Time takes place between Part 1 and Part 2 of Footsteps in Time, Book One in the After Cilmeri Series.  I think you will enjoy Winds of Time more if you read Footsteps in Time first.  Diolch yn fawr (thank you)!

Crossroads in Time (Book Three)

crossroads blogThree 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 …

cot blogNovember 1288. Bereft of a king or rightful heir, England hurtles towards civil war for the second time in a generation. When David, Prince of Wales, and his wife, Lili, travel to London to attend the wedding of William de Bohun and Princess Joan, they have no intention of involving themselves in local politics.

But as infighting leads to murder, David and Lili find themselves at the center of a far-reaching conspiracy. Trapped between history and legend, they must decide how much they are willing to sacrifice to save not only their own country, but the people of England as well.

Meanwhile, back in Wales, Llywelyn and Meg discover that time is no barrier to either adventure or trouble.

Children of Time, book four in the After Cilmeri series, continues the story of Llywelyn, Meg, and their children in the medieval kingdom of Wales.

At the age of thirty-four, Callum thought he’d experienced the worst that life could throw at him. That is, until his boss ordered him to open a buried file on his desk and to take it seriously. His new assignment: to detain and question a pregnant woman and her ailing husband—and if need be, to stop them from returning to medieval Wales.

Until today, Callum believed in his job and always followed orders. Until today, he thought time travel wasn’t real …

Warden of Time

Warden blogAs both modern man and medieval king, David is committed to transforming medieval England into his own version of Avalon. Not everyone supports his ideals, however, and having offended the pope by welcoming Jews and heretics into England, David is summoned to Canterbury to explain himself.

But when information comes to light that reveals the accusations against him have less to do with religion than with power and wealth, David finds himself on familiar ground—and at the center of a conspiracy that stretches from Ireland to Italy. Facing excommunication, a fickle populace, and a rebellion even by his fellow time travelers, he must decide what his throne is worth, and what he’s willing to sacrifice to keep it.

    I love your After Cilmeri series! The only other series that is as much fun is the 1632 series, but I like the fact that David and his family members can occasionally jump back to the modern world and get in just as much trouble. I found out about your series very recently, which is great because I had ten books and several novellas to read, but now I’ve hit the end and have to wait until next year for my next fix! Since it looks like David is going to be pressured to going on a crusade, please let him jump to the 21st century and pick up a few American special forces while fighting off CMI!

    Hi, Sarah. I’ve just downloaded Dot and am eager to get started. As a budding HistFic writer myself I am curious as to how you got clearance to use this title. Isn’t it the same title used by Josephine Tey back in the ’40s for her breakout novel about Richard III and the murder of the two princes? It was one of several mystery/histfic that hooked me on the genre when I was a teen.

    • Sarah Post author

      For starters, titles are not copyrighted. But also, that title is actually “The Daughter of Time”, which is a reference to a quote from Sir Francis Bacon: “Truth is the daughter of time, not of authority.”

    Hi. I just have to say that your books are amazing. I read all 10 in as many day. I love time traveling books and medieval and middle age books. I normally dislike POV switches especially as many characters as you introduced but it was flawlessly done. Every character was well rounded and developed. I Definitely wanted to express my awe on this point. I liked that the return to original time was as exciting as the middle ages. Read a few that the return was dry and I had to skip those parts. Your attention to detail was amazing and gave life to every place, time, and character. I can’t wait for the next book! I am definitely going to check out your oyher books while I wait but I hope it won’t be for too long!

    • Sarah Post author

      I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the books! Thank you so much for your kind words–and yes, the new book is in the works! Super fun 🙂

  4. Frances Yancey

    Sarah, I love the stories. They are so well written and held my interest. In fact, since I was rehabbing from surgery and couldn’t go any where, I read the whole After Climeri within a few days.

    I really like that you took the time travel concept into an alternate universe so you could have fun with the things brought back from present day. Time travel books seem solidly behind the theory that nothing can interfere and thus things cannot be left behind.

    I think that you were very clever to use what was brought back to underline specifics in the Middle Ages, such as health, education and the role of women.

    I was wondering if, in the body of your research, you came upon an explanation of how such a small country that shared a very unique language was so begot with internal strife. Usually isolation of a linguistic group results in a very cohesive view.

    I have taken advantage of some of your links for further information.

    Thank you for the stories and I am looking forward to the next.

    • Sarah Post author

      I don’t know if there’s a definitive answer to your question, but the strife among the Welsh during the Middle Ages was no different really than what happened in any ‘country’. For a long while, pretty much every country in Europe was split up into multiple little kingdoms, each fighting the other regardless of the fact that they shared a language. The Saxons were divided into many petty kingdoms, as were the French, Spanish, etc. When William conquered England in 1066, there was a single Saxon king, but that was a relatively recent phenomenon. At various times, all Wales was ruled by a single king too. It waxed and waned throughout.

  5. Dave Brown

    Sarah,
    After being born in Cilmeri 75 years ago and having lived here most of my life I am very familiar with the history of Llywelyn and Powys and the events of December 1282. I have to admit I have till today never heard of your books but will be delighted to read them with interest. Which was the first book in the Cilmeri series? so I can start at the beginning.
    Best wishes
    Dave

    • Sarah Post author

      Footsteps in Time would be the best place to start… book 1! Then Prince of Time, and then the prequel, Daughter of Time. You CAN read Daughter of Time first (and many do) since it’s free in ebook form. Whichever you choose, happy reading!

    • Liz

      You’ve probably read them all by now, but I started with the prequel, and I simply can’t imagine how it could have been as good starting anywhere else. 🙂

  6. Linda Lee

    I have only recently found this series after reading the Gwen and Gareth series. I liked the central idea of time travel fantasy mixed with the realistic problems of living in the middle ages and the greed and corruption of 21st century public servants very much. I lived in Liverpool, UK for many years and travelled to Wales many times so I am familiar with some of the locations in the books. I have even been on the bridge over the Menai Straights! I am now looking forward to book 11 as I have devoured the previous ten! I thought the introduction of new characters Callum and Cassie was good as it helped broaden the challenges facing the 21sters who belieived they could never go back to the future. What a challenge to face and come to terms with! I also enjoyed the adventures of David with King Phillip. I am familiar with some of the history of the Knight Templars and liked the way it was woven into that novel. I especially like the way Sarah Woodbury uses the history of the times to make the plots more complex and give the characters more depth. This was one of the features I so enjoyed in Ellis Peters books and I glad to see Sarah Woodbury following similar paths.

  7. T J Herron

    I have read all the After Celmeri books at least 4x’s plus bought them in the “Whisper Synch” form so that they are narrareted while I read along with them at the same time (if you wish)! Have read and listened to them at least 2x’s! It is amazing to do that! I loved this series so much, Ms Woodbury! You are now among my favorite authors! You and Diana Gabaldon are at the top of the list! If fact, I found out about the After Celmeri series from her Blog!!! 🙂 Thank you so much for so many hours of wonderful reading! So, so looking forward to Book 11! Wouldn’t change one word of any of them! Just amazing! Being able to read them or listen to them on Audible or Kindle is wonderful because I can read or listen to them anytime I wish!
    With much respect and His Blessings, TJ Herron

  8. June Edwards

    Nooooo! I’ve just finished reading book 10, I’m not ready to go back to the 21st century yet. Have really enjoyed every minute of the After Cilmeri series, bring on the next one soon.

      • Mardi Waring

        I have just finished reading through the whole series as of today after reading each one as it has been “born”, and since I have had computer problems, I may have missed any new notifications. I have also read the Gareth and Gwen stories and I have a feeling you mentioned a new one for them.
        I thoroughly enjoy reading them so am pleased there are to be more. Attracts all ages so at 84 almost, no problems with the reading …….the typing is the problem with my gardeners hands!

        • Sarah Post author

          If you’ve read up to Masters of Time, that’s the newest After Cilmeri book, and The Unexpected Ally, the next Gareth & Gwen novel will be published on July 19th! 5 days from now!

          I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the books. Thanks for writing me 🙂

  9. Diana

    I read the original After Cilmeri series books several years ago and then put off reading for pleasure to pursue nursing school. I recently came across the prequel Daughter of Time book and the additional books and excitedly read and reread all the books. I love time travel books and the medieval time period and romance books and this series combines all three. I can’t wait for books 11; 12, 13, 14, …… Thanks for the great entertainment.

  10. Jacqueline Robinson

    Sarah, you are a wonderful storyteller. I have all of your books and I honestly can’t say which one is my favorite. Maybe the After Cilmeri series…I have reread them now at least 3-4 times…I look forward to your next time travel book..they are such fun. And, they just pull you in with such fanciful thoughts and possibilities. I love the family…King David of England and his dad…the Prince of Wales and the little grandchildren who captured the Prince of Wales heart..Thank you for letting your brain enter ours.

  11. Effie Polston

    I loved reading these books. Starting the pendragon book next. Would love to know if there are going to be more After Cilmeri books.

  12. Barbara Munro

    This is my all-time favorite series. I re-read the entire series every time a new book comes out and then I listen to the new one at least twice as well. My favorite day is when another book in the series is posted. Keep up the great work. I keep purchasing more and more copies of the first two books to pass on to my friends and family who then proceed to fall in love too.

    • Sarah Post author

      Oh I am so glad to hear that! Thank you so much! And thank you for telling me. It’s readers like you who make it so I have the best job in teh world <3

  13. Olivia Alexander

    This is the second time I have read all the books straight through and finished them again. It still seems like Masters In Time came out earlier than February of this year, but after reading it, I started all over again. These books are fantastic, enjoyable, well written, and I can’t wait for the next one in the series. This series is very worth reading all over again because I still find things I had forgotten happened, and it is almost as if I am reading them for the first time. There is never a boring moment nor a detail that isn’t necessary. Now I am sad that I cannot read the next one yet, and miss the adventures of the characters who can cross the time barrier each night before I retire for the evening.

    • Sarah Post author

      I am SO glad you’ve enjoyed the books. I’m sorry I can’t write faster, but there are more coming 🙂

  14. Anissia

    I read all the books in “the after Cilmeri” series. All I can say is WOW. I was so enthralled and I felt like I have a personal relationship with the characters.

    I HOPE THERE WILL BE MORE IN THIS SERIES.

    Thanks for the wonderful ride :).

  15. Rita Riches

    I’ve just finished the first 2 books (plus the novella about Meg’s return to Wales) of the After Cilmeri Series and purchased the remaining books up to book 10. I can’t wait to read the rest. I’m not familiar with Welsh history so this has been an enthralling adventure so far. Thank you for this gift of enjoyment.

    • Sarah Post author

      I am so glad you’ve enjoyed the books! Thank you for writing me! It’s readers like you who make my job the best in the world <3

  16. Linda Hass

    I loved the After Cilmeri Series. I have a personal connection in genealogy history with Llywelyn Prince of Wales and father of David. Even thought I understood this is not a factual history but more like a what if the time travelers could somehow change the history as it was. All 10 books were an interesting read for me. Keep up this line. I would love to read more about this family.

  17. Lillian Delaughter

    I have read all of your Time books and wait with bated breath for the next in line. Please say one is in the works and will be out soon.

  18. Rona

    Just finished Masters of Time. Another great installment. Unfortunately I read faster than you can write. More, please!!!!!
    Thanks for your beautiful work and my escape to other worlds.

  19. Cheri

    I love the After Cilmeri series. Very addictive. Just finished book 10. I was a little disappointed that the kids didn’t spend more time in the 21st century. Thank you for a fascinating series.
