Jan 04, Debbie rated it really liked it. After all this time following this series I'm half in love with Rennie myself. I get exasperated with his wife Alayne since after twice choosing to marry into this family she still gets exasperated with everyone and is a rather indifferent mother.

How can we possibly lose her? I sure wish we would. Feb 14, Holly rated it liked it. On the one hand it's extremely well-written. There are beautiful descriptions of the Irish countryside, the remote Welsh hills and the rugged Cornish coast. There's a ruined castle too, appropriate enough for such a Gothic tale. And it takes place in , on the eve of World War II. An exciting time, with danger so very imminent, and all of the excitement and uncertainty are vividly evoked.

On the other hand I object to certain things about this book, much as I like it. Here author Mazo de la Roche goes out on a limb by presenting us with a fairly ridiculousand highly implausible premise: Wakefield, youngest Whiteoak brother, secures a part in a successful London play. He falls in love with his co-star, Molly Griffith. She's a nice girl, and they get engaged. He brings her home to Jalna. He then discovers that she's actually Renny's daughter from a long-ago affair If she'd been a Canadian girl this scenario might have made sense, since Molly's mother would have been a local.

Here we have the extraordinary coincidence of an English woman who briefly visited Jalna, 20 years earlier, as a horse trainer for Renny; who returned to the UK pregnant and who raised Renny's bastard daughter thousands of miles away, without telling Renny of her the daughter's existence.

Thomas Hardy himself couldn't have used coincidence to a more ludicrous extreme. The theme of incest is used largely to horrify and titillate. Renny, remembering his own randy youth, calls it a case of "pigeons coming home to roost," but I find the whole premise absurd. How Wake and Molly resolve their "problem" is, of course, the whole crux of the matter. And there's also some fun stuff about neurotic Finch being seduced by his even more neurotic and estranged wife, Sarah, with more angst to follow. Wakefield's Course (): Mazo de la Roche: Books

Mar 30, Meg Ulmes rated it really liked it. This book had one of the best plot surprises that I have encountered in my reading in a number of years--but I'm not going to reveal what it is. But the author, de la Roche, does an excellent job of seamlessly weaving that surprise so that it seems so right and not at all contrived. There are clues--but I wasn't really looking for them so I had a genuine "Aha" moment. This novel carries the family through the last year of peace before WWII begins and the men of the family go off to war. I really This book had one of the best plot surprises that I have encountered in my reading in a number of years--but I'm not going to reveal what it is.

I really enjoyed this installment of the family saga and hated for it to end.

Wakefield's Course

Jul 15, Trish rated it it was amazing Shelves: Book 12 in the Jalna series. The youngest of the Whiteoak brothers, Wakefield, travels to London to become an actor. He is joined by his brother Finch, a pianist. I usually prefer the books that are set predominantly at Jalna, but I found this one particularly enjoyable.

Series by cover

I loved the theater scenes with Wakefield. There is a doozy of a plot twist with Wake's romance with young actress Molly Griffith too. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?
