Description

A Burning Desire for One Country, One Love, and One Legacy That Will Last Forever.

Llewelyn, prince of Gwynedd, dreams of a Wales united against the English, but first he must combat enemies nearer home. Llewelyn and his brothers—Owen Goch, Rhodri, and David—vie for power among themselves and with the English king, Henry III. Despite the support of his beloved wife, Eleanor, Llewelyn finds himself trapped in a situation where the only solution could be his very downfall...

Originally published in England as four individual novels, The Brothers of Gwynedd transports you to a world of chivalry, gallant heroes, and imprisoned damsels; to star-crossed lovers and glorious battle scenes; and is Edith Pargeter’s absorbing tale of tragedy, traitors, and triumph of the heart.

 “A lively evocation of life on the Welsh borders in the Middle Ages, coupled with an ingenious plot, and the whole narrated with elegant crispness.”
—The Times L iterary Supplement

“Strong in atmosphere and plot, grim and yet hopeful...carved in weathered stone rather than in the sands of current fashion.”
Daily Telegraph

“A richly textured tapestry of medieval Wales.”
—Sunday Telegraph

“Those who fancy historical fiction with an emphasis on the history will savor this convincing tale.”
—Publishers Weekly
