'Josephine Moon just gets better and better. The Cake Maker's Wish is my favourite of her novels so far, and one of my favourite reads of the year. This is pure escapist delight, with a lot of heart and humour.' Better Reading When single mum Olivia uproots her young son Darcy from their life in Tasmania for a new start in the English Cotswolds, she isn't exactly expecting a bed of roses - but nor is she prepared for the challenges that life in the picturesque village throws her way.

The Renaissance Project hopes to bring the dwindling community back to life - to welcome migrants from around the world and to boost the failing economy - but not everyone is so pleased about the initiative.

For cake maker Olivia, it's a chance for Darcy to finally meet his Norwegian father, and for her to trace the last blurry lines on what remains of her family tree. It's also an opportunity to move on from the traumatic event that tore her loved ones apart.

After seven years on her own, she has all but given up on romance, until life dishes up some delicious new options she didn't even know she was craving.

An uplifting and heartwarming story about the moments that change your life forever, human kindness and being true to yourself.

'Moon's novel is utterly charming, sweet, engaging and carefully crafted...

This is the perfect single-sitting read for a lazy Sunday, best accompanied by tea and a piece of cake (or two).' - Apple Books Review Praise for Josephine Moon- 'A mountain of heart, an abundance of soul and a banquet of mouth-watering food.' Good Reading 'You can't go wrong with a book by Josephine Moon.' Vanessa Carnevale 'A delightful page-turner and a truly moving tale.' Better Reading

Twelve years and ten manuscripts later, her first novel The Tea Chest was picked up for publication and then shortlisted for an ABIA award. Her bestselling contemporary fiction is published internationally. Her books include The Tea Chest, The Chocolate Promise, The Beekeeper's Secret, Three Gold Coins and The Gift of Life.

She is passionate about literacy, and is a proud sponsor of Story Dogs and The Smith Family. She now lives on acreage in the beautiful Noosa hinterland with her husband and son, and a tribe of animals that seems to increase in size each year. She wouldn't have it any other way.
