Plaint for Provence:: 1152 Les Baux
Award-winning historical fiction. Like Game of Thrones with real history.
1152: Les Baux de Provence, where today’s friends are tomorrow’s enemies.
‘A remarkable achievement.’ Deborah Swift
As feuding lords gather in Provence, the troubadours, Estela and her lover Dragonetz, are plunged into a power struggle that could destroy the fragile peace.
Lady Etiennette des Baux has no intention of ceding to her overlord of Barcelone. Nor does she plan to remain a widow and she sets her sights on Dragonetz, offering him Provence as an incentive.
With dear friends on both sides, Dragonetz weaves a precarious path through the rival factions at court while Estela faces her own demons. Behind the chivalry of hunt and tournament, war threatens.
In this third volume of the Troubadours Quartet, Jean Gill, the 'master of historical intrigue', continues to weave the gripping adventures of Dragonetz and Estela seamlessly into real historical events. Medieval France comes to life in a historical page-turner full of intrigue, adventure and romance!
