A magnificent epic inspired by the glorious world of the troubadours, A Song for Arbonne is celebrated novelist Guy Gavriel Kay's love song to medieval Provence.


Arbonne and Gorhaut--two lands as different as the sun and the moon drifting through clouds. In the south, the olive trees and vineyards of Arbonne flourish, and the troubadours fill the air with songs of love and desire. To the north, the history of harsh Gorhaut has been forged with blood and fire, and now a corrupt king and his ruthless advisor seek to conquer the warm, fertile lands of Arbonne. The troubadours and courtiers of the south are soft--or so they appear. But for all their devotion to songs and a passion for beauty, the people of Arbonne will fight when invasion comes from the north.
