De Bohun's Destiny by Carolyn Hughes


De Bohun's Destiny

has RECEIVED a


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award



How can you uphold a lie when you know it might destroy your family?

It is 1356, seven years since the Black Death ravaged Meonbridge, turning society upside down. Margaret, Lady de Bohun, is horrified when her husband lies about their grandson Dickon’s entitlement to inherit Meonbridge. She knows that Richard lied for the very best of reasons – to safeguard his family and its future – but lying is a sin. Yet she has no option but to maintain her husband’s falsehood...

Margaret’s companion, Matilda Fletcher, decides that the truth about young Dickon really must be told, if only to Thorkell Boune, the man she’s set her heart on winning. But Matilda’s “honesty” serves only her own interests, and she’s oblivious to the potential for disaster.

For Thorkell won’t scruple to pursue exactly what he wants, by whatever means are necessary, no matter who or what gets in his way…

"A lie told for the best of reasons; the truth told for the worst..."


If you enjoy immersive historical fiction, set in turbulent and challenging times, with strong but credible female characters, you’ll love De Bohun’s Destiny, the third MEONBRIDGE CHRONICLE. Discover for yourself if, in Meonbridge, it is Margaret or Matilda, right or might, truth or falsehood, that wins the day...
