Why did I love this book?
Anne of Green Gables, step aside! The Blue Castle, a lesser-known work for adults from author Lucy Maud Montgomery, features a laugh-out-loud heroine that goes from spineless to sassy in a mere 310 pages. Set during the 1920s in the Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada, the heroine Valancy Stirling, escapes to Mistawis Island, the home of her heart with her very unlikely hero. Descriptions of the natural world are spellbinding as is the shimmering romance. A book to reread over and over again, something I rarely do.
