Historical Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1974

Samson, a fictional clerk of the thirteenth-century Princes of Gwynedd, relates the story of Llewelyn ap Griffith, who sought to free Wales from English tyranny and build a nation. Wresting power from the power-hungry King Henry leads to strange policies. This is a tangled tale of family rivalries and allegiances, richly written. Read with the rolling lilt of the Welsh tongue, Pargeter's carefully crafted descriptions of life, lands and passions take on, in Mitchley's delivery, the feel of a bardic recital. Pargeter wrote four books on the Welsh struggle, of which this is the first. For lovers of beautifully shaped phrasing and a good dose of history, this rendition is enchantment.
