The Jalna series deserves better TV treatment: Let fans help!, 28 October 2014
Author: claudiawheatley from United States

I've never managed to see the show, but the reviews tell me all I need to know, beginning with the casting of a middle-aged woman as the youthful Adeline and the 1970s anti-colonialism of the writers. Author Mazo de la Roche did not sentimentalize the Whiteoaks' fidelity to England so much as poke gentle fun at it—what did she do to deserve this treatment?

The Jalna books were recently reprinted, and a TV series could be a smash hit. But there must be no other agenda than telling a really great story. And no one should be allowed to work on it without the guidance of those who know the books inside out and love them, starting with me. Let's get on with it!
