Another in the Jalna saga, this one focuses on the first Whiteoaks of Jalna's grandchildren. There are adventures and troubles and trials to make a great story. ( )

I read this series of books when I was in my early teens. I loved the stories then. That was the 60s. I don't remember ever reading this one, but it was good. De la Roche's characterizations are great. The grandmother, Old Adeline, is quite a lady. ( )

Book description
Young Renny Whiteoak, with his flaming hair and sharp handsome face, was not yet twenty. And yet he had the wisdom of a man twice his years. Already he had become a legendary horseman, and eveyone knew that Jalna would someday be his. But even Renny had not reckoned with the power of a woman in the throes of passion - a woman who would destroy him if she could not have him...
