  1. First Assignment: Battle prejudice, disease and ostracism to survive. Second Assignment: The antagonistic force for Anna begins with her parents who forbid her marriage to the man she loves. But after she defies them and marries him anyway the community in which they live becomes an antagonistic force against her as an outsider. When Charles deserts her then the harsh realities that befall single mothers in 1913 are the antagonizing forces, these are personified again, by her mother, a hateful neighbor, and a sexually assertive boss. The antagonistic force for Charles (the other POV character) is Tuberculosis and the other characters that inflict prejudice on him throughout the novel. Third Assignment : Saving Grace (I'm pretty attached to that one after 10 years of title changes) Fourth Assignment: The Orphan Collector by Ellen Marie Wiseman As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner Fifth Assignment : In 1913, a white girl and a Greek immigrant defy her parents and buck society by eloping, but when Tuberculosis rips them apart the young couple must battle, prejudice, disease and ostracism just to survive. Sixth Assignment: Charles: his love for Anna would propel him to both want to stay with her and desert her to keep her safe. Anna: Not knowing whether Charles loved her or left her, Anna will lie to her friends to cover his disappearance. Charles: His need for acceptance will drive him into the arms of another woman, which will jeopardize his reunion with his wife. Anna: Her pride will drive her to steal to feed herself and her child costing her the network of support she once had. Seventh Assignment: Much of the novel is set in the West End of Boston, which is a dramatic change from Anna’s homogenous white neighborhood in the suburbs. The West End is teeming with immigrants from Greece, Italy, and Russia among others. The rest of the novel is set in a TB sanatorium in Upstate New York
