All her life, Valancy Stirling lived on a quiet little street in an ugly little house and never dared to contradict her domineering mother and her unforgiving aunt. At twenty-nine, she's never been in love, and her only consolation has been the forbidden books of John Foster and her daydreams of the Blue Castle. Then, one day, she gets a letter and decides that things need to change. For the first time in her life, she does exactly what she wants to and says exactly what she feels. At first, her family thinks she's gone around the bend, but soon, she discovers a surprising new world, full of love and adventures far beyond her most secret dreams.

    Persuasion por Jane Austen (allisongryski)
    allisongryski: This is by no means an obvious recommendation. However, the quality of writing and something of the heroines' characters is similar. The heroines of these two books are both under-appreciated members of their families, who are thought beyond any chance of marriage. They are both forced by circumstance to find courage that they didn't know they possessed and they are rewarded with eventual happiness.… (mais)

    The Ladies of Missalonghi por Colleen McCullough (MDGentleReader)

    Journey to the River Sea por Eva Ibbotson (humouress)
    humouress: 'Blue Castle' and 'Journey to the River Sea' have the same sense of wonderment and discovery at exploring the wilderness around the protagonist in the company of someone else who has made an effort to live in harmony with nature.

One of my most beloved books ever, I love Valancy and her story to find herself. Barney is ok, I don't really care about him, I read this book for Valancy and her horrible family and I think it's great. Five stars. ( )

The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery is a 1926 publication.

What a lovely story!

Initially, I was skeptical of the way Valancy was treated by her family! It hardly seemed possible for a woman her age to be infantilized that way- but Valancy, spurred on by a grim diagnosis, finds the courage to free herself from her bondage and for the first time in her life she feels free….

While my frustration with Goodreads grows by the hour, one consistent advantage is that I still discover books I might not have otherwise. I was not aware that L.M Montgomery had written any adult novels until my Goodreads friend Antoinette wrote a review for this book. I added it instantly- though it has taken me a few years to finally get around to reading it.

This is one of those books one wishes they had discovered earlier- but better late than never. This book is in the public domain- so you won’t have any trouble finding it. I highly recommend it. While there is a melancholy atmosphere attached to it for much of the story, it still has a kind of whimsical quality to it and of course some really nice surprises- and come on- you know the story will end on high note- so go forth- and enjoy an all around sweet, feel-good story for a change- you’ll be glad you did!

This is one of L.M. Montgomery's adult novels. It is different from Anne of Green Gables, although the story is still as innocent by today's standards. I appreciate how everything worked out in the end. How it gets there is interesting. ( )

Such a lovely read! I am just sad I didn't read this one sooner. If you haven't read it and you loved other books by Montgomery then do it... just read it. You won't be disappointed. ( )

From the author of Anne of Green Gables, but for an older crowd of readers. An old-fashioned story and a bit predictable, but I enjoyed it. ( )

If it had not rained on a certain May morning Valancy Stirling's whole life would have been entirely different. She would have gone with the rest of her clan to Aunt wellington'd engagement picnic and Dr. Trent would have gone to Montreal. But it did rain and you shall hear what happened to her because of it.

...fringed by aspens that were always quivering with some supernal joy.
Love! What a searing, torturing, intolerably sweet thing it was - the possession of body, soul and mind! With something at its core as fine and remote and purely spiritual as the tiny blue spark in the heart of an unbreakable diamond.
The new moons always looked down through it (the oriel window), the lower pine boughs swayed about the top of it, and all through the nights the soft, dim silver of the lake dreamed through it.
In a corner a nice, tall, lazy old clock ticked - the right kind of a clock. One that did not hurry the hours away but ticked them off deliberately. It was the jolliest looking old clock. A fat, corpulent clock with a great, round man's face painted on it, the hands stretching out of its nose and the hours encircling it like a halo.
...they ate out on the verandah that almost overhung the lake... Supper was the meal that Valency loved best. The faint laughter of winds was always about them and the colours of Mistawis, imperial and spiritual, under the changing clouds, were something that cannot be expressed in mere words. Shadows, too. Clustering in the pines until a wind shook them out and pursued them over Mistawis. They lay all day along the shores, threaded by ferns and wild blossoms. they stole around the headlands in the glow of the sunset, until twilight wove them all into one great web of dusk.
