The Untempered Wind

WOOD, Joanna E.

Regular price $100.00 Sale

Wood's publisher, J. Selwin Tait, compared The Untempered Wind to Brontë's Jane Eyre and Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. The main character is a fallen woman who remains true to her vow of love, despite the harrassment of the narrow-minded women of Jamestown (likely modelled on Queenston). At the pinnacle of her career in 1901, Wood was the highest paid Canadian fiction writer.
