‘A Journey full of treachery, adventure and romance.’ (Deborah Swift)
From 1150: Provence, where making love and making paper are crimes against the Church to 1153: Hispania and the Isles of Albion, where the wise traveller carries a knife in her under-skirt.
Death on her heels, Estela runs towards a new identity. Her life depends on her golden voice and the patronage of Eleanor of Aquitaine but her heart cares more for the judgement of her tutor, Dragonetz, a cynical ex-crusader. He knows he must not love this troublesome student but their duet makes its own demands.
Will their secrets kill them both? The troubadours, Dragonetz and Estela are an explosive combination which their powerful enemies intend to blast into smithereens.
Set in the period following the Second Crusade, Jean Gill’s spellbinding romantic thrillers evoke medieval France with breathtaking accuracy. The characters leap off the page and include amazing women like Eleanor of Aquitaine and Ermengarda of Narbonne, who shaped history in battles and in bedchambers.
