Mazo de la Roche (pronounced may'zo and Rosh to rhyme with Foch), was born on January 15, 1879 in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada and is best known for her Jalna Series, otherwise known as the Whiteoak Chronicles. The series tells the story of one hundred years of the Whiteoak family covering from 1854 to 1954. Although the novels were not written in sequential order, each can be read as an independent story. Names of many of the characters were taken from gravestones in a Newmarket, Ontario cemetery and the author reportedly once told a friend that she “had the whole story in her head from beginning to end; all she had to do was write it down.” Mazo de la Roche died July 12, 1961 and is buried near Stephen Leacock, another Canadian author available here at Fadedpage, in Sutton, Ontario. The Jalna series has sold over eleven million copies worldwide in 193 English and 92 foreign editions.
In Mary Wakefield, published in 1949 and the third book of the Jalna series, a young English woman is hired by Ernest Whiteoak to be a governess to Phillip’s motherless children. When Phillip falls in love with her, his mother does all she can to prevent the marriage.
