A wonderful, beautifully written story that really happened. Set in the times of Richard I and John, this tells the story of Llywelyn Fawr, Prince of Gwynedd, and his marriage with Joanna, the bastard daughter of King John. It is passionate, full of real history, and plenty of emotional punch. I have read this one several times over, and discover it anew every time I go back for a reread. One of the desert-island books for me.

The copy listed in the swap is for the mass-market paperback edition.

Laura are you planning to read the whole Welsh trilogy?

Rebecca Huston Yes, I am. And it should be soon, I haven't reread them in a while so it's just about time to do so.

Laura I must reread them also some day, what a great story.
