About the Author

In 1927, Mazo de la Roche was an impoverished writer in Toronto when she won a $10, 000 prize from the American magazine, Atlantic Monthly for her novel, Jalna. The book became an immediate bestseller and went to be adapted for stage, screen and television.

The role of women and the role of money and materialism in the novel offer an interesting point of comparison for younger readers in the classroom. -- CM Magazine
