Owl at Midnight

a story of Gwenllian the lost Princess of Wales
by Patricia Lennan

Gwenllian ferch Llywelyn, daughter of the last native Prince of Wales, was born in Abergwyngregyn, North Wales, in 1282, a tumultuous time when King Edward of England was determined to take Wales for himself. After Edward had killed Gwenllian’s father, Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, and her uncle, Dafydd, and had imprisoned her boy cousins, he must have felt some compassion for the infant Gwenllian for he ordered her to be hidden away in Sempringham Priory, her name changed, to live out her days in anonymity.

Taking these known historical facts, Patricia Lennan has brought the young Welsh Princess Gwenllian to life in a story that expands from the minutiae of prayers, service and fasting in a Gilbertine nunnery, to a quest caught up in the wide sweep of extraordinary events in 13th century Britain.

In Patricia’s own words: ‘Wales has a reputation for being a land of myths and legends. She harbours magic in the hollows and hills, in secret places, the rivers and valleys echo with ancient tales. I invite you to step into the living history and share an adventure.’

Paperback book, 364 pages, with map, Welsh royal family tree, plus pen illustrations heading each chapter.

    Siân-Angharad Tovey – Welsh language translator
    ‘I greatly enjoyed reading this novel about a period in Welsh history we know very little about and the mystery surrounding Gwenllian. Although there are several story lines, that of Gwenllian obviously dominates, but this is a novel which is full of tension and excitement and attempts to throw light on the disappearance of one of our Welsh princesses. An excellent novel from beginning to end!’
