Winds of Time is a 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 21st century, Meg will need every last bit of maturity and knowledge she gained in the 16 years she spent in the modern world - to survive even a day in this one.
A note from the author: This story was started many years ago, as part of Footsteps in Time, book one in the After Cilmeri series. 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 the story of Meg's return to the Middle Ages. Thus, Winds of Time takes place between part one and part two of Footsteps in Time. I think you will enjoy Winds of Time more if you hear Footsteps in Time first. Diolch yn fawr (thank you)! Sarah
Other books in the series include nine novels:
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely. It fills in the story from Meg's perspective.
What other book might you compare Winds of Time to and why?
That's hard because it's a Novella.
Which scene was your favorite?
When Meg and her family are reunited. It's the best scene in the entire series. I could listen to it hundreds of times.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed and got choked up - so both.
Any additional comments?
This is the best series that I have ever read and I love listening to the books.
This smaller episode in the After Cilmeri series is far shorter than the full length stories but it fills in the missing story of Meg's that fits into the timeline of Footsteps in Time.
I can hardly say anything about the story without it being a spoiler, but anyone who reads the descriptions of later books in this series could perhaps detect Meg's presence in those stories so yes - Meg has her own adventure to tell us about.
So many bits here come swooping back in another few more books. But this is Pure Meg / it's nice when the mom gets to tell her story again. Loved this mini vacation via my ears.
I purchased this book, myself, as a whispersynch for voice companion to the kindle edition of this book, and love the ability to alternate between and listen, even though this is s quick read.
I hope there is more. It is a very fascinating story. The narrator is very steady throughout her performance. To me, she lacks emotion.
Definitely grabbed my interest to read the whole series! Written so it almost seems believable that something like this could happen. I found it easy to identify with the main characters even though they are very different. Fun read- looking forward to the next one.
I've loved this series in both e-book and audio. This novella fills a story gap. While I have enjoyed Laurel Schroeder's narration of these stories, the pace and tone of this installment is inconsistent with the others, making it harder to listen to. Unlike the faster, more confident way she reads the rest of the books, this one is read in a slow, breathy whisper. Just hard to reconcile.
