Storyline

At the end of the 19th century, Emilie Bordeleau, daughter of Caleb Bordeleau, decides she wishes to continue her education. She faces great opposition from her small minded entourage, but her spunk and verve win out and she becomes a school teacher. Eventually she falls in love and marries one of her students and they move to Shawinigan and have a whole bunch of children. Though her marriage is based on passion, happiness eludes Emilie, whose husband is an irresponsible lout with a drinking problem. The only job he seems able to hold down is as a lumberjack up north, where his wife and kids cannot follow. Written by <griffe@graphisme.com>

Why I LOVED "Les Filles de Caleb"
15 July 2006 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was 36-years old and my daughter 7 at the time. We are french-Canadian (but read, write and speak English fluently as well) and love history, in particularly the one from the province of Quebec, where we were born and still live. This TV-series is based on a true story. Though the real life of Emilie Bordeleau and Ovila Pronovost was a bit more romanced in the series, their story was amazingly well reproduced through remarkable actors, producers and directors. And what about the scenery and the music. The way large country families in the late 1800's and early 1900's lived and struggled for their survival, the primary school teaching, religion's tremendous influence, women's poor condition, men's speaking authority, the meanness of minds towards unknown illnesses (relating them to the devil), the first world war... with a sense of true love and tight friendship linking the people together against all odds. Those who love history, even if it isn't theirs, should read the books (3), and we can assure them they will fall in love with Émilie and Ovila. I deeply regret that this great story has been compared to superficial empty afternoon soaps. I really do. Too bad, they've missed something very special. Fortunately, my daughter and grand-daughter will not.
