Mazo de la Roche

Our family affair was held at a Canadian inn frequented by the authorMazo de la Roche, who wrote about the Whiteoaks of Jalna, in a Galsworthy way. Our cousins had heard of her, and read her books, but we hadn't.

Off we went to visit her grave at St. George's Church in Jackson's Point, Ontario. Now, we're just a little bit interested in yesterday's best-selling author, known to us only as a throwaway line in Simon Gray's play, "Butley."
