Product Description

Review

Roche's use of metaphor would be helpful to students to understand how language and environment can be used to mirror both characters' lives and story developments. (CM Magazine 2012-03-30)

First published in 1960, in Morning at Jalna it is 1863 and the American Civil War is raging south of the border. Still in its early years, the Jalna estate seems far away from the despair and destruction. Philip, who will grow up to become the master of Jalna, has just come into the world, while Augusta, Nicholas, and Ernest are children. Life at Jalna is as peaceful as usual until the Sinclairs come to visit. They arrive with the polished manners and soft accents of Old Carolina and quickly appeal to Adeline’s sense of hospitality. However, as the burden these distant cousins bring grows, the Whiteoaks begin to suspect that the Sinclairs have a deep and dangerous secret. This is book 2 of 16 in The Whiteoak Chronicles. It is followed by Mary Wakefield.

About the Author

Mazo de la Roche, in 1927, was an impoverished writer in Toronto when she won a $10,000 prize from The Atlantic Monthly for her novel Jalna. The book became an immediate bestseller and was eventually adapted for stage, screen, and television.

I enjoy the colorful descriptions of the outdoors, family activities, inside the house and so on. The personalities of the adults and children are diverse and most interesting. Years ago, I read the entire series so I was delighted when the books became available again and now I can read them again.

The book is a pleasure to read and the service was good.
I truly enjoyed it.

I believe The Jalna Series should be part of the books students are advised to read in school. The language used is so beautiful and rich and these books are about family, love, affection, work, values.

Favorite series ever! Feb. 8 2014
By Don E. Carnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved everything about this series. I feel I became a member of the Whiteoak family. I would recommend it to anyone who loves reading! I actually had to have the next book in the series before finishing the immediate one I was reading. I have re-read the entire series and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. I actually feel sorry for anyone who passes up the experience!

New house, young family! April 2 2013
By Lolly - Published on Amazon.com

Loved this part of the story.......the beautiful new home and the children young and full of adventure. I found pioneering in such a "rich" aristocratic way quite enjoyable.
