My copy was owned by Chloe R (neatly printed on the cover) and before that was sold in a college bookstore, this indicating the wide appeal of this book for those with a strong interest in Medieval life. The author successfully attempts to 'interview' different common people in a town and they express their 'own' thoughts about their hopes and dreams. Along the way, we learn of life at that time from a tannery worker, a fisherwoman (eels and frogs sold well), and a ragmuffin who ran away from his masters lands to try and remain in the town for a year, at which time he can become a resident.
