Ok, I know you're all thinking, "When do I have time to read for fun?"
But if you do have some spare time over spring break, I wanted to
recommend the following historical novels by Sharon Kay Penman:
Here Be Dragons--concerns relations between England and Wales under
Llewelyn Fawr (Llewelyn ap Owain).
Falls the Shadow--mostly about Simon de Montfort, but also has a lot
about Llewelyn ap Gryfydd
The Reckoning--continues the story of Llewelyn ap Gryfydd
Reading Here Be Dragons is what made me decide to major in history in
my undergraduate years. While as a grad student I have moved over to
early modern rather than medieval history, I still maintain interest
in medieval Wales.
