Product description


Joe Kertes, winner of the U.S. National Jewish Book Award and the Canadian Jewish Book Award for his novel Gratitude, says: “In The Cook's Temptation, Joyce Wayne takes us back to Victorian England. Her Cordelia, a fitting name, is both generous and determined. She is both of her time and ahead of it. She confronts anti-Semitism, sexism and class discrimination at a time when doing so meant risking your well-being. The triumph of this book is that it feels as modern and Canadian as it does Victorian. In telling Cordelia Tilley's story, Joyce Wayne occupies a unique perch from which she can see the world as it really is and as it can be. The Cook's Temptation is a bold and exciting novel.”

About the Author

Joyce Wayne has worked in publishing and taught journalism for twenty-five years at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, where she launched the Journalism for International Writers program. Winner of a Diaspora Dialogues fiction contest and the Fiona Mee Award for literary journalism, she has been published in Parchment, The Golden Horseshoe Anthology, Canadian Voices and TOK6. The Cook’s Temptation is her first novel.
