Which book are you visiting?
The very same. How are you liking your visit?
t is 1244 and I'm Gruffudd ap Llewelyn (Llewelyn's ap G's dad) and I'm in the Tower of London. Although I've gained a few pounds in captivity, I think it would be cool to make a rope of the bed sheets and scale down the Tower walls from my window, so I can go and claim my Welsh Prince heritage! Oops!! Bad idea!

I remember this scene so well and yet do you think I can recall the name of the book?!
You'll have to put me out of my misery and remind me of the title, Ken

Senena, Gruffudd's wife (another incredible MA woman!), helps him drug his guards and Owain, his son starts to lower him down, until ........! King Henry 111 then releases Owain, to cause unrest between his brothers Dafydd and Llewelyn over their claims to Gwynedd.
Great stuff isn't it?

I wonder when it will be published?
