Summary

Summary

Valency Stirling has lived a life of submission. Controlled by a domineering mother and an over-opinionated family, she awakens on her twenty-ninth birthday resigned to dull existence. Her only escape—the Blue Castle of her imagination.

But when an unexpected letter changes everything, Valency breaks the bonds of fear and finds purpose in a whole new life—a life that turns the Blue Castle of her dreams into a reality.

Best known for her Anne of Green Gables series, L.M. Montgomery’s The Blue Castle is one of her few adult novels, full of both humor and romance.

Author Bio: L. M. Montgomery

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30th, 1874, in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Although she lived during a time when few women received a higher education, Lucy attended Prince Wales College in Charlottestown, PEI, and then Dalhousie University in Halifax. At seventeen she went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to write for a newspaper, the Halifax Chronicle, and for its evening edition, the Echo. But Lucy returned to live with her grandmother in Cavendish, PEI, where she taught and contributed stories to magazines. It was this experience, along with the lives of her farmer and fisherfolk neighbors, that came alive when she wrote her Anne books, beginning with Anne of Green Gables (1908). Anne of Green Gables brought her overnight success and international recognition. It was followed by eight other books about Anne and Avonlea, as well as a number of other delightful novels, including her Emily series, which began in 1923 with Emily of New Moon. But it is her delightful heroine Anne Shirley, praised by Mark Twain as “the most moving and delightful child of fiction since the immortal Alice,” who remains a popular favorite throughout the world. She and her husband, the Rev. Ewen MacDonald, eventually moved to Ontario. Lucy Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.
