Suzanna Clarke has the patience of a saint!
I have to take may hat off to Suzanna Clarke, she is undaunted and enthusiastic despite everything that Fez its bureaucrats, her neighbours, and employees throw at her. I found this a thoroughly enjoyable read, and having been to Fez, I found every word entirely believable. The city is one of such contrasts, and you are never quite sure what peoples motives are, so it is interesting to hear how she negotiates her way through this minefield with unerring good humour.

A gem of a book
I downloaded this title as I was going to Morocco and stopping off at Fez. Quite simply it tells the story of a couple who visit Fez, fall in love with the place, and decide to buy and do up a riad.
The book relates the experiences of Suzanna and Sandy who are thrown in at the deep end, learning from scratch about Moroccan culture and architecture. It's a lovely book to read as they learn to navigate their way around Moroccan bureacracy and build up relationships with both the expat community and the locals. By the end of the book you really feel like you have shared all their experiences.
