Authored by Margaret A. Westlie
Prince Edward Island in 1847: fifteen-year-old Mattie Cameron is playing in a tree. She has no idea that her mother is about to call her down to be married that very same day.
Mattie’s mother has herself just remarried after the sudden death of her Mattie’s father in a farming accident. Mrs. Cameron is harsh and critical of her children. Does she simply want Mattie out of the house now that she has a new husband?
Follow Mattie through the first year of her marriage, as her relations with her new husband, her mother, and her best friend Cora all change, even as Mattie herself changes from a girl into a responsible wife and mother.
Readers who love Anne of Green Gables will find in Mattie’s Story a world that is far less naive, but equally life-affirming.
