Mattie Cameron is only 15 when the schoolteacher comes to ask for her hand in marriage. Her mother agrees to the proposal, and Mattie is married the same day. Based on a story told by the author's grandmother, Mattie's Story brings the world of 19th-century Prince Edward Island to life while exploring significant issues in the lives of women.
