A Project Gutenberg of Australia eBook
Title: The Blue Castle (1926)
Author: Lucy Maude Montgomery
CHAPTER I
If it had not rained on a certain May morning Valancy Stirling's
whole life would have been entirely different. She would have
gone, with the rest of her clan, to Aunt Wellington's engagement
picnic and Dr. Trent would have gone to Montreal. But it did rain
and you shall hear what happened to her because of it.
Valency wakened early, in the lifeless, hopeless hour just
preceding dawn. She had not slept very well. One does not sleep
well, sometimes, when one is twenty-nine on the morrow, and
unmarried, in a community and connection where the unmarried are
simply those who have failed to get a man.
