Description:
Based on the true story of Jacques Coeur, The Dream Maker recounts the life and times of a Medieval visionary. Born in 1395, the son of a fur trader, Coeur rose to become the King of France's visionary First Banker. With his tours of the Far East, his criticism of the Crusades, and his efforts to develop trade, this entrepreneurial genius contributed to bringing France out of darkness toward the Renaissance and modernity. Coeur was, at one time, the wealthiest man in France, but at the height of his success, disgrace and imprisonment at the hands of his enemies threatened.

His ill-considered infatuation with Agnès Sorel, King Charles V11's favorite mistress, precipitated Coeur's fall from grace. In Rufin's delectable prose this true story becomes a gripping tale of adventure, a novel of ideas, and a moving love story.
