1152 Les Baux de Provence
Summoned to the court of Les Baux, Estela and her lover, Dragonetz, are
embroiled in two rival claims for power as their feuding liege lords gather in
Provence. Although Estela is reluctant to leave her idyll with her young child
Musca, and her pursuit of Arabic medicine, she welcomes the chance to show her musical skills and to support Dragonetz, who must use his swordsmanship to play peacemaker. 
   The visit of the Comte de Barcelone to Les Baux sparks bitter memories of the
recent civil war and Lady Etiennette des Baux has no intention of ceding to her
overlord. Nor does she plan to remain a widow. With good friends on both sides,
Dragonetz weaves a precarious path through the rival factions at court where an uneasy truce prevails behind the chivalry of hunt and tournament. 
   Meanwhile, Estela faces her own demons. Confronted with her childhood abusers, threatened and attacked, she confides in her friends. Unfortunately, one of those friends is Dragonetz' worst enemy and Estela has no idea of what he is capable. 
   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 alive
in all its facets, from healing with leeches to training a goshawk.
