The Bride Price

by June Francis

â??Liverpool’s Catherine Cookson’ â?? Crosby Herald

She is Welsh. He is English.

From a young age they have been taught by their elders to be enemies.

But Cadfael needs a guide for his journey through the Welsh wilderness and his hike up the great mountain of Snowdonia.

His aim is to find his half-brother Rhys.

Who would be able to help him?

Upon meeting Lady Sioned ap Rowan, Cadfael decides only she can help him bring Rhys home.

Sioned strongly resembles the woman in his mother’s vision and is also confident in the landscape of her Welsh homeland.

Fortunately, she was also not of the mind to decline Cadfael’s offer, seizing her chance to escape from an arranged marriage to her horrific betrothed, Govan.

However, Sioned has her own motives to venture up the mountains…

With the chance to embark on her quest, Sioned certainly did not intend to fall in love with her companion.

Even if she found him handsome and charming…

But things do not always go to plan.

Out in the wilderness and with the threat of imminent danger, a spark between them could not help but ignite.

But what of Cadfael’s search for Rhys?

And Sioned’s arranged marriage to Govan?

Can their new found romance overcome their countries’ differences?

The Bride Price is an adventure-filled, heart-warming romance.

Praise for June Francis:

â??Real people. Real emotions. Another excellent book from one of our best saga writers’ â?? Historical Novels Review

June Francis was born in Blackpool and was first introduced to the joy of storytelling by her father when he returned from the war in 1946. Her mother’s work in service and tales of the old days, and a family history that boasts of at least six mariners from far and wide, have inspired and influenced several of her novels. The Pawnbroker’s Niece is one of several historical novels.
