This book is a little bit realistic fiction and a little bit fantasy. This is the story of 12 year old Peter Morgan who is living in Wales for a year while his father is teaching. It's only been a year since his mother's death and the family is still hurting from the sudden loss. Peter finds a harp key that shows him pictures from the life of Taliesin, a great bard whose life in 16th century Wales has been immortalized into legend. This book is set in both the present day and in ancient Wales. Find out what awaits Peter as he is transported back in time in A STRING IN THE HARP.
