Jalna (novel)

Jalna is a novel by the Canadian writer Mazo de la Roche.

It is the first of a 16-novel family saga about the Whiteoak family. First published in 1927, Jalna won the Atlantic Monthly Press's first $10,000 Atlantic Prize Novel award. De la Roche went on to write about the Whiteoak family for the next 30 years, establishing a place for herself in popular Canadian literature. The Jalna series has been translated into many languages and was adapted for stage, radio, and television. John Cromwell directed a 1935 film adaptation, Jalna. In 1972, it was filmed for television as The Whiteoaks of Jalna.

Jalna is a city in west-central India, used by de la Roche as the name of a manor house built by a retired officer of the British army who had served in that country. It resembles an actual house in the Clarkson neighborhood of Mississauga, Ontario, called Benares. The house was built in the late 1850s for a retired officer of the British army who had served in India, James B. Harris. In India, both Jalna and Benares (now called Varanasi) were the locations of British garrisons. Operated as a city museum, Benares Historic House once occupied a larger estate, part of which de la Roche called home for a time.
