Ringing the Changes Zusammenfassung

Ringing the Changes: An Autobiography Mazo de la Roche

First published in 1957, Mazo de la Roche's last autobiography is a vivid look at her life in Ontario, and a parting shot at her critics.

Mazo de la Roche was once Canada's best-known writer, loved by millions of readers around the world. Her Jalna series is filled with unforgettable characters who come to life for her readers, but she herself was secretive about her own life and tried to escape the public attention fame brought.

In this memoir, de la Roche describes her childhood and her relationship with her cousin and life-long companion, Caroline Clement. She confesses her personal connection with her troubled character Finch Whiteoak and details her romantic struggles. Ringing the Changes is the closest view we have of Mazo de la Roche's innermost thoughts and the private life she usually kept hidden.
