Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem steps in.

When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

The story is good and well-executed, except for two things. The romances and the points of view. Yes points, there are about six throughout the story and sometimes it jumps from one to another without any warning and this drew me out of the story. That and I didn't really feel that the romances h...
