text ☆ The Blue Castle ´ L.M. Montgomery

The Blue CastleAn unforgettable story of courage and romance Will Valancy Stirling ever escape her strict family and find true loveValancy Stirling is unmarried and has never been in love Living with her overbearing An independent story from the author of Anne of Green Gables written for an older audience An important and underrated part of the Montgomery collection in this story a young woman young by our standards an old maid in her time rebels against her oppressive family and a conservative society to achieve a few basic but essential moments of happiness On the surface this may look like flowers and fluff but for the time this was a subversively pre feminist novel Valancy becomes psychologically and sexually independent finds her own voice and claims a corner of the world and its scruffy male inhabitant for herself This book had a big impact on me in college and is still important as realistic fantasy for women living in strict conservative societies patriarchal Japan for example Montgomery's work is constantly under estimated and the way the books are marketed doesn't help the flowery script the swoony illustrations There are many layers at work in her stories and some pioneering feminist concepts tucked in between the deep appreciation of nature the commentary on the stuffy contemporary society of her day and the delightful well drawn characters
