    Self absorbed Whiteoaks as always Adeline is at her self dramatizing best Tite, the French Indian Canadian young man is mesmerizingly, cheerfully amoral The three oldest Whiteoak children are the real stars of this particular volume and get up to several amusing or scary high jinks Set during the American Civil War, the Whiteoaks have an unpleasant sympathy with the South, a view that blacks are better off being cared for and the most unflattering black stereotypes Also the movement back and for [...]

    I guess Morning at Jalna is really a second prequel than a real book in the series It continues the story of the first prequel Building of Jalna It has of a plot than the first novel, but it is still a collection of anecdotes rather than just one story.In the first half of the book, Lucy and Curtis Sinclair come to visit Jalna indefinitely They are plantation owners running away from the American Civil War, taking three slaves with them, which does not make the Whiteoaks neighbours happy In th [...]

    First read 50 years ago and upon recalling my enjoyment I decided to re read the series Lovely descriptions and have not disappointed

    I enjoyed MORNING AT JALNA, despite its flaws It s one of the weaker books in the Jalna series In fact, a reviewer once stated that she saw no reason why the book should have been written That s a rather harsh judgment, though, in my opinion MORNING AT JALNA really does have a sort of interesting plot, and that s a lot to say for author Mazo de la Roche, who is not remembered as ever having been strong on plottingThe setting is the early 1860 s, just after the outbreak of the American Civil War [...]

    It s not easy to find this book any I got it at my library but had to special order it from another branch The series has two different numbering systems one by order written, one by order of events In the order of events, this is the 2nd in events, following The Building of Jalna I wasn t crazy about the opening, but the story really picked up after that and is a delightful mix of humor and drama If you like family sagas, then you ll enjoy the Whiteoaks series I especially enjoyed the children [...]

    The second installment of the Jalna saga takes these Canadian settlers into the Civil War concerns of their neighbors to the south plus a few other adventures None of this is very serious, analytical, or earth shaking, but it s all extremely enjoyable We leave the Whiteoaks on a ship to England, where their three older children are being packed off for proper schooling this volume just suddenly ends there But I was planning to read my way through the whole series anyway.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book One of the things I find the most charming, and this is a charming book, is that the children are children They act like children, they speak like children and they don t have any other motivation, they are children Written in the time of the civil war, this is a very interesting time slice, I think most honest No causes going on here.

    The second book, chronologically, in the Whiteoak saga, this is definitely not as well written as some of the other books in the series I am finding it tedious, the characters flat, not as fully developed as the books written earlier.

    Not as good as the first book with all the same limitations and not quite as interesting Children are fun and well portrayed Events don t really come together too well Some characters, eg Titus, are simply weird and not entirely believable Nevertheless, it is an easy read.

    I had some trouble plowing through I remember reading some of these when I was a young girl and am looking for something familiar.
