The Blue Castle (Paperback)
A timeless, heartwarming classic from the author of Anne of Green Gables, this delightful and witty romance will sweep readers away
Valancy Stirling is 29, unmarried, and has never been in love. Living with her overbearing mother and meddlesome aunt, she finds her only consolation in the "forbidden" books of John Foster and her daydreams of the Blue Castle—a place where all her dreams come true and she can be who she truly wants to be. Shortly after her birthday Valancy receives some news about her health that makes her decide to throw caution to the wind and make a fresh start. Rebelling against her family she soon discovers a surprising new world, full of love and adventures far beyond her most secret dreams. One of Montgomery's only novels intended for an adult audience, The Blue Castle is filled with humor and romance.
