The Acadians began as a group of (primarily French) settlers in 17th century Canada. Over the years, they have been subjected to numerous hardships that usually result in the disappearance or assimilation of a culture. The Acadians were able to retain large portions of their identity, even after their homeland was taken and they were exiled. EVANGELINE: PARADISE STOLEN is the first and only novel on the Evangeline and Gabriel story and the Acadian Deportation written by an actual descendent of characters in the book. M. M. Le Blanc was inspired by her grandfather's research from his published three non-fiction books about the Acadian Deportation and his discussions on their family. In the imminence of war with France, the question of the neutrality of the Acadians, and the possibility of an Acadian revolt led to the forcible deportation of a large segment of the Acadian population. That event, known among Acadians as “the Great Upheaval,” would serve as the theme of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem Evangeline. BOOK FIVE: The Great Upheaval. INTRODUCTION.
