Kendal (kendals) | 8 comments This book was very similar to LM Montgomery's "The Blue Castle" but is not the same book. An unmarried woman in her late 20s, her name is something like Missy or Sissy, goes to the doctor and is told she has a year left to live. She decides that she doesn't want to be submissive any longer and will no live the life she wants. She proposes marriage to an "unsuitable" man in the community, knowing that he doesn't love her. In the end, they discover that she isn't going to die and that the man really does love her and they live happily ever after.

I read this book around 2005. I believe it was published in the 80s or 90s, but I could be completely off base there.

Thanks for any help!
