Song at Dawn: 1150 Provence

Jean Gill

Category: Mystery/thrillerRomance 

Like ‘Game of Thrones’ with real history. A runaway girl with a golden voice and the knight who shouldn’t love her. What they’re hiding could kill them both. Medieval France comes alive! Winner of the Global Ebooks Award for Best Historical Fiction. “Believable, page-turning and memorable.” (Lela Michael, S.P. Review)

Estela de Matin would give anything to be a troubadour. A pawn in a perilous game of queens, she’s reliant on her golden voice and a dagger hidden in her underskirt.

Scarred by the crusades, Dragonetz los Pros now fights with sword and song for a more enlightened world, where faith has no colour. When he meets the runaway girl in a ditch, the whole world changes.

Will their secrets kill them both?

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 who shaped history in battles and in bedchambers.


“Historical Fiction at its best.” (Karen Charlton, the Detective Lavender Mysteries)

“A walk through time! It drew me into the pages and would not let go of me until done!” (Arwin Blue, By Quill Ink and Parchment Historical Fiction blogger)
