Publisher's Summary

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 29, 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.

My favorite L.M. Montgomery story behind Anne

I love this story! I bought it the day it came out. The narrator did a marvelous job! It just makes you feel good to listen!

Loved this version

Barbara Barnes does a great job with this story. This is one of my favorite LMM books, about an almost 30-something heroine breaking away from an unhealthy family to live a life more true to herself.

So pleased Barbara Barnes will also be narrating Anne of Ingleside - coming out 10/17/2017. This will finally put all the Anne books on audio - something I've been waiting for since the 1990s. Can't wait!

The Blue Castle

I have read this book over and over again. Would love to see a movie made from it, but only if it stayed truthful to the book. Love having the audio version.

Slow start, but loved it

This story started very slow and the main character was starting to annoy me with her self pity. I am glad that I kept going. It was a very good story about letting go fears and doing what is right.

Ahead of its time

This was quite a cute little story, not as good as the Green Gables series but still good. I’m sure it was quite a book at the time it was written, but since then we’ve been so saturated in stories similar to this that that fact took away a little bit of the specialness that this book would have clearly had at the time it was written.

A Favorite!!

I was so pleased to find an audio version of this book, since the paperbacks are somewhat rare! I found the reader well suited for to the story, with a calm voice that also injected the proper inflection LM Montgomery's WONDERFUL stories deserve... This is one of Montgomery's books intended for adult audiences, and is such an entertaining read. Highly recommend.

Fantastic!

I absolutely loved this book. Sometimes I just need an upbeat, light book and this was balm for my soul. Not silly but sweet, where the heroine wins.
