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

    YOUNG RENNY is set in 1906 and therefore qualifies as a flashback novel, featuring Renny Whiteoak in his young pre Alayne days He s not yet twenty years old He s handsome and virile and arrogant He has his first roll in the hay with a gypsy woman, but afterwards he has to deal with major fall out from the family He s also feuding with Irish cousin Malahide Court, who competes with him in a local horse show Malahide is a nasty, treacherous, lisping sychophant who attaches himself to the old grand [...]

    I am reading my dad s favorite series of books It took me months to get this one from the library I enjoyed reading it, but I wish the author would show me and tell me less I love the characters, especially the title one Renny I guess I m saying that I would like substance this narrative seemed a bit thin However, I m ready to move on to the next novel and I m hoping for some depth

    I really quite like Phillip and am sorry he is only in a couple of books Meg is still likable in this book at least to a point, although I know she becomes one of my least favorite The whole storyline with the cousin from Ireland was amusing, with all the ways they use Wakefield and the parrot to annoy him.

    Fourth in the Jalna series, by order of events Young Renny takes place in 1906 and is a real coming of age book Quite humorous in places Written in 1935, there s a subltety about one of the characters Malahide that I was surprised to find Adeline remains a force to be reckoned with Don t miss this book if you re reading the Jalna series

    Part four of the series and oi, with the drama There s mysterious older women teaching younger men about love, there s cheating and heartbreak and babies and a really annoying cousin with a hilarious name Malahide Needless to say I loved it and Adeline is just one rocking grandma

    Again, a good, decent novel, although Renny s and Meg s unkind treatment of their distant and rather deplorable Irish cousin and matriarch Adeline s overbearing treatment of most everybody were a bit wearying On to Jalna 5

    Same as previous Jalna books There are at least 13 of them You follow the family in love, death and the birth of new babies.

    This book is the fourth in a wonderful series about the Whiteoak family I cannot wait to complete the entire series
