112. Whiteoaks by Mazo de la Roche
Four generations of the Whiteoaks live in Jalna, the family's estate in southern Ontario. They are a fierce, proud family dependent on the hundred year old matriarch Adeline Court Whiteoak. Adeline makes it known that her fortune is left to only one descendant but not which one. First published in 1929, and sometimes titled The Whiteoaks of Jalna, this book is chronologically eighth in the sixteen part series.
