Sample text

Of all that she heard, it was the story of the wreck of the Marco Polo that impressed her the most. One of her first pieces of recognized writing was an essay entitled “The Wreck of the Marco Polo,” written for a national contest. The story stayed with her for life, and as an adult, Montgomery often told about the Marco Polo when asked to speak at events. As Montgomery grew into a young woman, life with Grandmother and Grandfather Macneill became more complicated. Her grandparents found it difficult to keep up with Montgomery’s adolescent energy.

Homesickness and Mary Ann’s rejection prompted Montgomery to return to Prince Edward Island in August 1891. Although the year had been filled with heartache, Montgomery was glad she had come. She had spent a whole year with “darling father,” whom she was never to see again. She had made good friends, traveled, and seen a good deal of Canada. But by far the brightest spot of the year was getting published. When she had left Prince Edward Island for Saskatchewan, she had been a teenaged schoolgirl.

Her first class in the one-room schoolhouse initially consisted of twenty students but soon swelled to thirtyeight, and as her first full year of teaching came to an end, Montgomery was responsible for an overwhelming sixty pupils. A mixture of homesickness for Cavendish and MISS MONTGOMERY, THE TEACHER lack of self-confidence at first gave Montgomery serious doubts about her ability to teach, but her negativity was short-lived. By the end of the summer her self-doubts were gone, and she was performing well in her new profession.
