If you like L.M. Montgomery’s The Blue Castle, you’ll probably also like:
— Colleen McCullough’s The Ladies of Missalonghi, which is basically The Blue Castle with a twist;
— Robin McKinley’s Beauty, with its reclusive hero and heroine just learning to come into her own;
— Eva Ibbotson’s A Company of Swans, where the heroine must run away to become herself;
— and Susan Wiggs’ The Charm School, since Valency’s family appears to have a great deal in common with Isadora’s.
Any other suggestions?
