    Good yarn

    very enjoyable story! Likeable characters and a good plot. Couldn't wait to get into the next book when I finished this one.

    poor

    I managed to read half of this, at which point I was aware that I had no interest in the characters and certainly no empathy for any of them, in fact I discovered that one of them I thought was female was actually male... I rarely give up on a book but this one was just not worth the time and effort in my opinion.

    convincing historical

    I can see why this is a prize winner. First up, let me explain why I downloaded it - part of a collection of fiction, about women, by women, recommended by one of my favourite authors - and my name is Dawn. Obligatory really. However; I usually struggle with historical romance; especially when set in another country and I don't have the shorthand I need. So; this is set in France, about troubadours, intrigue, crusading, religion, politics and love. I expected faux medieval English, scattered with lots of French phrases, and with clunking descriptions of castles and rush floor coverings; as challenging to read as Chaucer. What I got was thoughtful plotting, interesting characterisations, clever interweaving of the attitudes appropriate to the time with descriptions of the settings that floated from the page, making me feel the very fabric of the locations - the walls, fabrics, utensils. Just enough French to give flavour, without making me feel too ignorant and sufficient explanation of the positions of the known historical characters neatly disguised within the story. I genuinely felt transported on occasion. So; an excellent read for anyone who enjoys this kind of thing, and a great detour to take from my usual thrillers.

    Song at Dawn

    If you enjoy medieval history and are familiar with the geography of southern Franc and its medieval towns, this book grabs you. You can see the colours, smell the smells and appreciate the intrigue. I loved learning about the trading relationships with the Lavant asnit was then (middle east) and the understandings between Christian and Jewish traders, the Templars and the church, and the delicate balance of society. Very entertaining book and will read the next one "Bladesong"
