Book Review of
The Blue Castle
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. Then she gets a letter―and decides that very day 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 Valancy discovers more surprises and adventure than she ever thought possible. She also finds her one true love and the real-life version of the Blue Castle that she was sure only existed in her dreams…
A woman in her twenties finds herself lonely and trapped in her family’s gossipy life. Then everything changes when she visits a doctor who tells her that she is going to die within the year. So she decides to rebel against her family which leads to many different events that change her life. This book reminds me of Anne of Green Gables which is probably why I enjoyed it so much. I found this to be a fun relaxing read, yet it is a slightly predictable story.
