3 Reasons You Should Read The Blue Castle

“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:

  1. If you love L.M. Montgomery and can’t wait to see what she can do with an adult character. It’s fantastic!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
