This is the Bantam Starfire edition with cover art by Ben Stahl. Spine and cover creases, edgewear. Pages yellowed (seen before in this edition) several pages have short closed tears at foreedge margin making this a reading copy only; interior pages clean.; A fun story, set in the Muskoka region of Ontario, of a 29 year-old-spinster coming into her own. For ages 12 and up so more of a young adult book than a children's book. Many LM Montgomery admirers say this is their favourite of her books. High praise indeed as this author wrote so many wonderful books. Readers of McCullough's "The Ladies of Missalonghi" (also in stock) will find numerous similarities between the two books. The results of the plagiarism case brought by the heirs of L M Montgomery against McCullough have been sealed.; "At twenty-nine Valancy had never been in love, and it seemed romance had passed her by. Living with her overbearing mother and meddlesome aunt, she found her only consolations in the "forbidden" books of John Foster and her daydreams of the Blue Castle. Then a letter arrived from Dr. Trent -- and Valancy decided to throw caution to the winds. For the first time in her life Valancy did and said exactly what she wanted. Soon she discovered a surprising new world, full of love and adventures far beyond her most secret dreams." Image is actual copy on offer.
