Dec 03, Kylie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Lovers of history, time travel and a good, simple, clean story. Shelves: favorite-books. I love Wales. I have been to Wales and I loved it. I did not stay there long, just two days on my trip around England, Ireland and Scotland but I fell in love while I was there.
I also happen to love the concept of time travel, and I love good, simple, clean stories. Stories that you can pick up, get lost in, and have an intense desire to keep reading whenever you are forced to put the book down. Footsteps in Time by Sarah Woodbury is one of those books. When I was fifteen I was given The Dark Age by Traci Harding and I just consumed that book and the series thereafter -- though in the end -- I was somewhat disillusioned by the ending of the whole series I still, to this day, pick up everyone of her books.
Footsteps in Time reminded me instantly of that delightful feeling that Traci Harding's books gave me. Being home again. Being safe in a book series. Without a doubt, I will buy every single one of Sarah Woodbury's books. Sarah Woodbury uses very little description of characters and settings, rather like how C. S Lewis writes. You are given leave to build your own picture of what the characters look like, of what Wales looks like and it makes the story so much more inviting, as your imagination draws you deeper into the tale.
I ended up dreaming that I was there, with the characters, at night and it was wonderful to feel that sensation again. I have not had such a sensation in a very, very long time. I adored the characters, for once I felt like I could relate to the female lead, Anna. I liked her, I felt like her, and it made me connect to her in the situations she found herself in.
As for David, her brother, he was fabulous! He acted just how a young teenage boy would act given the situation he was, it was as though I was staring right at my little brother in the pages of a book!
Considering the fact that it was my Dad who recommended this book to me, and that he enjoyed this, and he very rarely reads these types of tales, I highly recommend this book.
I'll be starting Book 2 tonight, as I cannot wait to return to Wales. View 1 comment. Feb 27, Zann rated it it was ok Shelves: fantasy-scifi-dystopian-time-travel.
I'm on page of and I'm not sure if I want to finish it. On the plus side: 1 I've enjoyed the characters and their relationships to one another.
I only wish that sort of thing had been explored more deeply. In this book the point of view swings back and forth between Anna and David, but without any clear distinction between the two.
This seems like something which could be placed at the end of the book, not smack dab in the middle! It was very distracting to go from reading prose, to reading a list of events, then back to prose. Well enough to not only fit in, but to advise others as to upcoming events. Sure, their mother was highly educated in those things, and with good cause, but still…these are American kids, the majority of whom probably find anything concerning history to be dry, boring and totally unrelated to anything going on in their present day lives.
Most care more about the latest technology than about how people lived in the thirteenth century. He also knew battle strategy enough to plan and then lead one of the flanks of military men.
On top of that, by the time he is sixteen he's settling disputes and other such things. I don't doubt young noblemen of that time did those things, but it seemed a stretch for a young boy raised in modern day America. Especially the ability to strategize when he had not been raised around warfare.
The majority of fourteen, fifteen and sixteen year olds of our times are certainly not prepared, nor do they have the maturity to take on those kinds of responsibilities and that type of decision making. By that time the two of them were already married! I felt cheated out of watching that relationship develop.
I'm sorry, but he seems to have fit in way too well from the very start. Young boys and girls with swords and bows, ruling a kingdom. It is not true fantasy with an entire created world as was the majority of the Narnia series. Twice people landed back in time due to a car accident, one other time it was due to…we don't know since events took place "off camera" so to speak, other than the fact that Meg was flying around in an airplane and noticed the terrain was no longer of modern times, but rather the once familiar landscape of the thirteenth century.
And what causes people to pop back to their time period of origin? Why these people? Why this particular time period? Perhaps some of this will be answered in one of the other books in the series.
Perhaps I am being too critical here. The story has a wonderful premise and I would like to know more…but I'd like more character development and less of the historical information dump.
I'd also like to have more of the scenes where we're really right in the moment with the characters! There are a few of those scenes and they are so good, but much of the time I'm being told a story instead of being involved in it. View all 4 comments.

The hero is a Mary Sue. The heroine is a Mary Sue. Hell the whole book is a fucking Mary Sue. I admit that time travel requires some kind of handwaving in order for the protagonists to live longer that 24 hours in the past I swear to god, the author might have succeeded in writing the single most boring time travel book in existence.
