|Plot Summary of Look Homeward, Angel |
|"Seventeen-year-old Angelique Boudreau couldn't be happier, for she is soon to marry nineteen-year-old Joseph Landry, the man she loves. But it's October of 1755, and life for Angelique, Joseph, and the other Acadians in their town of Grand Pre, Nova Scotia is about to change forever. One terrible day, the Acadian men of Grand Pre are deported by the British, and Angelique fears she will never see her father and her beloved Joseph again. Because her mother is eight months pregnant and feeling very poorly, Angelique is left behind with her when most of the Acadian women are deported as well. Angelique and her mother struggle to make it on their own until they can find out where the men were sent and follow them. Angelique must care for her mother. Meanwhile, Joseph struggles with his unbearable longing to see Angelique again as he must care for her sick father and find work to support themselves."
