    Whiteoak Inheritance is the fifth chronological book of the series. Published in 1940, the novel is set in 1919. The Great War is over and Renny Whiteoak returns from France with his batman, Wraggs. Maurice Vaughn also returns with a crippled hand.

    Two more Whiteoak siblings have been born: Finch, aged 11 and Wakefield, aged 4. Augusta, Lady Buckley is a widow. Uncles Nick and Ernest are now making their home at Jalna. Philip II and Mary Whiteoak are deceased. We never really know how and when Phillip and Mary die, although Wakefield is often referred to as a posthumous child born with a “weak heart.”

    The story focuses on the arrival of Jim Drayborn and his sister Chris Cummings. Renny and Chris fall madly in love with each other, but it is not to be, although there are consequences from their affair. Eden is attracted to an older woman, Amy Stroud, but as with almost every woman in the books she is attracted to Renny, who spurns her attentions.

    One of my favourites in the Jalna series, so a Jalna five star rating from me. It had all the usual characteristics, but seemed even better than the last couple of novels. Maybe it's because I had a bit of a break from the series and was so pleased to get back to the family and all their naughtiness.

    A Jalna novel set in 1919. Renny Whiteoak returns from the Great War to find many changes at the family homestead. His father and stepmother have both died, leaving behind four orphaned young half-brothers. Renny becomes, overnight, an instant father, in a manner of speaking, but the role doesn't suit him well at first. Our hero is arrogant and domineering by nature, and the young brothers don't take too kindly to his rule. Most of the conflict comes from his struggle to control their vagaries.

    Brother Eden is a precocious teenager, carrying on a scandalous and most unsuitable love affair. Brother Piers is a disobedient brat, Finch is a hobbledehoy, while baby Wakefield is just plain spoiled. There's also mention of young Pheasant, their next-door neighbor's love child, who has her own part to play in the storyline. Renny takes charge of all these kids but not always successfully. And he's also unable to reconcile sister Meg with Pheasant's father, Maurice, who has waited these many long years for Meg's forgiveness...

    A major romance develops between horse trainer Christine Dayborn and Renny. Chris is an English girl, unhappily married, who has come to Ontario in search of work. She and Renny soon become lovers. They are training a magnificent horse, Launceton, to run in the next Grand National. However, there's a real villainess here who portends tragedy for all of them...and far-reaching, devastating consequences to the Renny-Chris affair...

    Jalna #5 chronicles Renny's return from WWI and his reinstatement as head of the Whiteoaks, with his older sister and four younger brothers as well as the older generation of uncles and the irrepressible Adeline, his grandmother, to which add sister Meg's former love and his daughter, Eden's older woman and her tenants, and horses, dogs, and some ancillary characters. Canada is getting crowded, but it's all a pleasant, nicely written and plotted read.

    De La Roche discusses hardly at all WWI, but perhaps Canada didn't fell its effects as much, or perhaps it just didn't fit her story. But that's okay; it's a series of novels, not a history.

    Whiteoak Heritage is #5 in the Jalna series. This is another charming entry in this Canadian family saga. As Renny returns home from WWI, two new people also settle in the area. One is a mysterious widow with an interest in Renny's much younger brother, Eden, and the other is a woman who is a horse trainer, newly arrived from England with her brother and her young son. I enjoyed this novel, and continue to enjoy my summer re-read. I have not read this series since my 20's but remember scenes and characters here and there as I go along.

    J'avais dévoré tout Jalna quand j'étais adolescent, et si je suis incapable aujourd'hui de me souvenir de chacun des tomes qui composent cette saga gigantesque, je me souviens tout de même que j'avais pris beaucoup de plaisir à découvrir cette famille et ce domaine familial que l'on suit pendant presque un siècle.


  7. Debbie Debbie says:

    Here we see Renny becoming head of the family. Eden is becoming his irresponsible self absorbed self, and Finch, who has a masters degree in self involvement himself, is the awkward overlooked child he will remain.


  8. Meg Ulmes Meg Ulmes says:

    This novel is so much better than the one that preceded it. It has more depth and substance and an absolute villainess that I truly hated by the end of the book. The plot is interesting and takes some twists that I didn't expect. I have chosen my favoritecharacter so far--Renny.

    Better than the last ones, more structure and a good ending.
