“Rebellion flamed up in her soul as the dark hours passed by – not because she had no future but because she had no past.” –The Blue Castle, L.M. Montgomery
I love these gorgeous new paperback editions of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s books! I have The Blue Castle, Mistress Pat, and Pat of Silver Bush so far. (I’d love to get the whole series of Anne of Green Gables, but a girl has to eat.) The Blue Castle is absolutely delightful! Thanks to @kristinalael I discovered this book recently as an adult. I thought I had read everything of Montgomery’s, but I was thrilled to find this rare jewel! It felt like I had found a new book she had just published!
Top 3 Reasons You Should Read The Blue Castle:
- If you love L.M. Montgomery and can’t wait to see what she can do with an adult character. It’s fantastic!
- If you enjoy reading about main characters who grow and blossom in the most unusual and delightful ways. You will love the transformation that the main character undergoes.
- If you are crazy for a sweet, old-fashioned love story that makes you laugh, cry, and cheer. This story is about finding a place in which (and a person with whom ) you feel completely safe, loved, and comfortable.
I was giggling within a few pages at the terrible woes and dramas that 29 year-old Valancy experiences. Then, I was beside myself with frustration (and talking out loud to the characters in the book). Before long, I was laughing and cheering. To me, this is a book about freedom and joy, and I adored it! Another satisfying L.M. Montgomery read!
