In the Pat Series, the protagonist, Patricia Gardiner hates change of any kind and loves her home, Silver Bush, more than anything else in the world.

The Blue Castle’s story takes place in the early 1920s focusing on a 29 yr old Valancy Stirling in the fictional town of Deerwood, located in the Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada. One of Montgomery’s few books for adults and not set in the Maritimes so it was interesting trying to differentiate this one by scenery by the age of the protagonist and the era.
