The Blue Castle was first published in 1926. The story takes place prior to WWI in the fictional town of Deerwood, located in the Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada. Deerwood is based on Bala, Ontario, which the author visited in 1922. The story follows the main character, Valancy Stirling, as she tries to put the pieces of her life together after being advised she has only about a year to live because she has a fatal heart condition. This novel is considered one of L.M. Montgomery's few adult works of fiction, and is the only book she wrote entirely set outside of Prince Edward Island. In 1982, the story was adapted into a successful Polish musical, and ten years later Canadian playwright Hank Stinson authored another version, The Blue Castle: A Musical Love Story.
