First published in 1944, The Building of Jalna is one of sixteen books in the Jalna series written by Canada's Mazo de la Roche. In The Building of Jalna, Adeline, an impulsive bride with an Irish temper, and her husband, Captain Whiteoak, select Lake Ontario as the site of their new home. De la Roche chronicles their trials and tribulations during the building of the house, the swimming and skating parties, and the jealousies and humourous events that arise.

I found some of the characters to be unbelievable, one-dimensional and frankly boring. The narrator was OK but not the greatest--at least for this book. The plot was fairly well thought out...I just think the bones weren't well-fleshed out.
