In 1906, Maud became secretly engaged to the handsome, well-educated Presbyterian minister at Cavendish, Ewan Macdonald. She remained in Cavendish to care for her ailing grandmother, who had raised young Maud after her mother's death. Her grandmother died in 1911. Four months later, Reverend Ewan Macdonald and Lucy Maud Montgomery were married in the home of Mauds uncle, John Campbell, in Park Corner, Prince Edward Island.
