What stories would they tell, if she finally listened? Ellie Carver arrives at her grandmothers bedside expecting to find her silently slipping away. Instead, the beloved woman begins speaking. Of a secret past and castle ruins forgotten by time. Of a hidden chapel that served as a rendezvous for the French Resistance in World War II. Of lost love and deep regret . . . Each piece that unlocks the story seems to unlock part of Ellie toowhere she came from and who she is becoming. But her grandmother is quickly disappearing into the shadows of Alzheimers and Ellie must act fast if she wants to uncover the truth of her familys history. Drawn by the mystery surrounding The Sleeping Beautya castle so named for Charles Perraults beloved fairy taleEllie embarks on a journey to Frances Loire Valley in hopes that she can unearth its secrets before time silences them forever. Bridging the past to the present in three time periodsthe French Revolution, World War II, and present dayThe Lost Castle is a story of loves won and lost, of battles waged in the hearts of men, and of an enchanted castle that stood witness to it all, inspiring a legacy of faith through the generations.

Three ladies in three different time periods: the French Revolution, WWII, and the present day. One castle, and an heirloom brooch. How are they all connected?
I'm completely engrossed in this book. I regret not reading it sooner. #CurrentlyReading

This was a beautiful, if somewhat difficult, read. For example, Vi‘s story starts in 1944, jumps to ‘41, & then bounces around between those years. The same is true of Aveline‘s storyline, also not running in an easy to follow chronological order. You may need a roadmap in time to find your way through this book, but I recommend it, & look forward to the next in the series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #historical #romantsy (FYI, this story is clean, romantically.)

Finally finished this book! Took me a while 😮

✔ Intriguing story
✔ Atmospheric writing
✔ Mellifluous storytelling
✔ Love • castle • French countryside • vineyards
✔ Blend of fact & fiction

❌ Slow slow burn story
❌ 3 different timelines (1789, 1944, present time) - somewhat confusing and overwhelming but it's ok.

Rating: 4.5🌟

The Lost Castle did not disappoint! It will transport you to the beautiful French countryside to uncover some secrets in the past with a slow burn story and a very light, unassuming romance. Read the full review here: https://goo.gl/emb3cN

avalinah @TommieMarie74 I would not be lying if I said that that is what initially drew me to this book 😂 2y
TommieMarie74 I totally get that. I often judge books by their cover. I try not too but it‘s hard. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2y

Kristy Cambron has a new fan. I found it easy to follow 3 story lines. Each chapter ended at a spot that made me want more yet I knew another story was waiting on the next page. The stories blended well with each other and before I was ready, the end was near.

and the imperious stranger should have known better than to chide her for a white lie to survive in the midst of it.
