The Bard’s Daughter is a 22,000 word prequel to the Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mysteries:

As a bard’s daughter, Gwen has spent her life traveling from castle to castle and village to village with her family, following the music. In the winter of 1141, Gwen’s family is contracted to provide the entertainment for the coming-of-age celebration of Lord Cadfael’s son. But before the celebration can begin, Gwen’s father is found over the body of his friend, with a harp string as the murder weapon and blood on his hands.

With the lord of the castle uninterested in finding the true killer, it is up to Gwen to clear her father’s name before her father’s music is silenced … forever.

The Bard's Daughter is followed by The Good Knight, the first Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mystery.

Rather similar in style to the Brother Cadfael stories by Ellis Peters, not too taxing and flows nicely

I liked this tale as an introduction to this series. Gwen is a likable "detective" and her beginners efforts seem believable. The mystery worked and was not obvious. I also,like the Welsh history. It made me want more.
