Product description


The role of women and the role of money and materialism in the novel offer an interesting point of comparison for younger readers in the classroom.

(CM Magazine)

First published in 1949, in Mary Wakefield, the third book in the Jalna series, a young English woman is hired by Ernest Whiteoak to be a governess to Philip's motherless children. When Philip falls in love with her, his mother does all she can to prevent the marriage. This is book 3 of 16 in The Whiteoak Chronicles. It is followed by Young Renny.
