The time is 1924-five years after the events of Whiteoak Heritage. Renny, the master of Jalna, is still unmarried. Meg, his elder sister, has become an embittered spinster of forty, still nursing a grudge against the fate that broke off her marriage to Maurice Vaughan eighteen years earlier. But their young half-brothers are growing to manhood and thinking of marriage. Eden, Piers, and Finch are widely diverse in character. Eden is talented, charming, idle, and utterly selfish. Piers, aged twenty, is a stolid, unimaginative farmer who despises Eden's poetry and prefers the inarticulate company of horses and cattle. Finch is at the awkward age, a dreamy youngster troubled by the uncertainties and questionings of adolescence. Into this family circle Eden brings his American bride, Alayne. Alayne has had a sheltered and fastidious upbringing: she is taken aback b/ the uninhibited Whiteoaks, perpetually quarrelling, loving, and hating each other. Especially is she taken aback by old Adeline. Adeline is ninety-nine, hardly caring what she looks like, certainly not caring two hoots what she says. The old lady's mind is set on just one thing: to survive to her hundredth birthday. (Philip Mackie)
