Few books have captured the atmosphere of daily medieval life as well or as movingly as "A Fool and his Money". Rodez, in southern France, was divided for centuries by a fued between two masters. This partitioned town thus acquired two distinct cultures. The story focuses on the strange case of Peyre Marques, a merchant who forgets where he has buried his gold. To read "A Fool and his Money" is like opening a shutter on to a sunlit medieval street teeming with characters, talk and noise all coloured with the vibrancy of truth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Popular history at the highest level."
--"Independent"
"Wroe is an excellent historian and an engaging writer with a beady eye for detail and an attractive turn of phrase. Best of all, she conveys a true feeling for the recreation of period and persons and place."
--"Daily Telegraph"
"History lives best when it is loved, and nobody who reads this book can doubt the author's love of her subject."
--"Sunday Telegraph"
