This early work by Lucy Maud Montgomery was originally published in 1926 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Blue Castle' is a novel full of humour and romance about a woman named Valency and her discovery of a new world of love and happiness. Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on 30th November 1874, New London, in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. Her mother, Clara Woolner (Macneil), died before Lucy reached the age of two and so she was raised by her maternal grandparents in a family of wealthy Scottish immigrants. In 1908 Montgomery produced her first full-length novel, titled 'Anne of Green Gables'. It was an instant success, and following it up with several sequels, Montgomery became a regular on the best-seller list and an international household name. Montgomery died in Toronto on 24th April 1942.

This was good. It was much more satisfying than I thought it was going to be. Every time Valancy defied other people and pleased herself, it made me feel good. It was almost as if I had been the one pleasing only myself. This book was extremely inspiring and very, very good. Valancy and Barney are such dears!

This is an amazing book! I really liked it! If you like the "Anna of Green Gables" book you will for sure like this book.

If you loved Anne of Green Gables, The Blue Castle will be an absolute delight. Meet Valancy, a character (similar to Persuasion’s Anne Elliot) who takes our first impressions and ends up surprising us at every turn. I found myself cheering her on at every act of rebellion! A lovely story for a sick day, or any other day.

Words cannot adequately describe my joy to discover that we finally have this book in our collection -- it's one of my all-time favorites, and I don't understand why more Anne fans haven't made the leap to becoming Valancy fans in their adolescence and adulthood. This book is such a joy to read -- Montgomery's writing is, as always, lovely, and her characters' love story is up there with Anne and Gilbert's as one of my favorites from literature. Read this book! Read it read it read it!

L. M. Montgomery's writing is so beautiful in this book that it made me want to go to Muskoka. The main character, Valancy, is likeable and even surprising. The guy, Barney, is not so surprising, even a bit predictable, but still cool. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would definitely read it again. It made me laugh a lot. For a 20s book, the heroine is pretty awesome.
