S1 Ep 1: The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery

To kick off the podcast, we dive into an old favourite of ours–The Blue Castle by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

If you haven’t read this enchanting, fable-esque story that is a love song to Muskoka (as well as a love song to love itself), then we highly, highly recommend that you drop everything and rush out to read it.

This episode contains spoilers, so consider yourself warned!

Our fave edition, published 1981. Publisher unknown.

Show Notes:

This is a photo of Maud’s cat Good Luck, who inspired Barney’s obsessively loveable cat of the same name:
