First published as Whiteoaks in 1929, in Whiteoaks of Jalna, the saga of the Whiteoak family continues, with more rivalries, tangled relationships, and secret love affairs. The colourful matriarch Adeline Whiteoak dies at 101. Each book is a complete and satisfying story in its own right, but the Jalna series has proven itself to be addictive to generations of readers around the world. This is book 8 of 16 in The Whiteoak Chronicles. It is followed by Finch’s Fortune.
