      This novel is unique in that it has three storylines in different time periods going on at once All the stories revolve around a castle and vineyard in the Loire Valley I ve traveled here and love this setting The stories go back and forth between Gilded Age, WWII and the present The transitions between these stories could ve been better, trying too dicipher when and where the story was took a lil time to figure out I still really enjoyed it overall would recommend.

    3. Olivia says:

      4.5 stars When this book ended, my brain couldn t stop whirling Everything came together so well all three settings, 1789, 1944, and Present day I m so amazed how Krisy Cambron weaved all three stories into one It is her most well written, easy to follow stories yet And it is only the first of a trilogy I can t wait for the next two Three woman Avaline, Vi, and Ellie They each have stories that reach into the heart of mankind and reveal raw emotions I couldn t decide who I preferred There is so [...]

      Favorite Quotes Don t borrow trouble, Grandma Vi had always said Don t borrow but be sure you don t set out to buy it either Tears, the real kind the ones that meant everything was about to change and she must weather it all with newfound courage refused to leave them be.My Review The Lost Castle was not an easy or relaxing read, as the storylines were active and highly eventful while taut with tension, peril, infirmities, family drama, and three unexpected and inconvenient romances Ergo, it req [...]

      As intricate as a French tapestry, as lush as the Loire Valley, and as rich as Ellie s favorite pain au chocolat, The Lost Castle satisfies on every level The three timelines weave and build upon each other, as the three heroines navigate dangerous times and unravel ancient secrets Kristy Cambron s writing evokes each era in loving detail, and the romances are touching and poignant C est bon

    6. Elizabeth says:

      I loved this book The cover was enough to get my attention But the story goodness, it was amazing I gravitate to these types of books, but adding a third period to the plot was a wonderful idea.The plot itself unravels slowly, moving between three periods in the Castle s history the French Revolution, World War II and the resistance in France and the current time I was briefly concerned that I would be confused, but that was not the case.The central story revolves around Ellie, a young woman who [...]

      Solid five along with a box of tissues You ripped my heart with this one, girl I ve been trying to compose myself to write a proper review but I ve failed miserably So I m just gonna try to get some words out without giving away too much of the plot.Kristy Cambron is one of my favorite authors and I first fell in love with her stories through her split time WWII books, therefore I knew how masterfully she could write this type of story Even so, I confess I warily started out The Lost Castle beca [...]

      ConfessionI ve never read a book by Kristy Cambron before She is a new to me author I actually get her newsletters and have enjoyed reading those and seeing what she has coming up I kept seeing this book pop up on friend s reading shelves and happened to see it on NetGalley I debated The cover is gorgeous and the synopsis sounded very intriguing to me After a little debating, I took the plunge Best decision ever I really didn t want this book to end I didn t want to set it down I just wanted to [...]

      But then the brooch, the photoe discovery of a lost love and the breaking open of a story she d never known existed As fairy tale romances went, Ellie had to admit that finding him in the photo and giving him her grandmother s decades long answer to a secret proposal was up there The three separate time periods modern day, WWII and the French Resistance and the height of Revolutionary France are interwoven well with the crux of their action emblemized in a decaying castle in the Loire Valley Whi [...]

    11. Sarah Monzon says:

      I wouldn t be able to choose a favorite storyline woven expertly through this book if forced, and that, dear friends, is the mark of a truly terrific split story novel Each thread, whether taking the reader through revolutionary France, the resistance during the Second World War, or lead by the heart of a loving granddaughter , I was immersed and enchanted If I could board a plane for France right this minute, I would These stories will stay with me long after turning the last page and I can t w [...]

      A story unknown a castle ruin with a secret held and the captivating history of three women connected in a provincial fairytale landscaped through revolt and war I was intrigued from the very beginning as three timelines begin the tale a single mystical character a castle Set in France, the attention to setting transported me instantly to the French country side where foxes playfully weave through ripened vineyards of The Sleeping Beauty castle, Ch teau des Doux R ves I love how easily I was int [...]

    13. Hayden says:

      Dual storylines are something you either love or hate, and I ve felt both emotions depending on the book They are, after all, tricky things to handle, and The Lost Castle isn t even a dual storyline it contains three different plot threads and time periods that alternate with each other While they all interweave together beautifully at the end, the format isn t without its issues every time I d get interested in one plot, it would switch over to another That could be a little frustrating and hin [...]

      Based on the synopsis, I wasn t sure if this was a book I would enjoy but because I ve read 2 books by Kristy Cambron and loved them, I decided to give this a try.I m very glad I did.This story follows 3 women in 3 different time periods and centers on a castle in France I enjoyed the storyline of Avaline, who lived in the 1700s the best Each character was very developed and their stories were woven together beautifully at the end.The setting is very atmospheric, so much so, that when I would pi [...]

      The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron is the most delightful Christian historical and contemporary romance Like a cosy sweater, Kristy Cambron s stories just cocoon the reader from start to end.The novel has a triple timeline mainly set in France late eighteenth century, 1941 1944 and present day As the story unfolds, the reader takes great delight in travelling through the time periods.The stories are linked by strong, brave women Women who are educated, know what they want and will go to extraordi [...]

      A beautiful novel Review to come.

    22. V. Palmer says:

      Kristy Cambron has written a fairy tale that should go down in history Who cares that this particular story is fiction History books, you ve been warned deadpan stare The Lost Castle weaves together a present day search into the past, all the drama of a girl on the run World War Two story, and the angst of the French Revolution The modern storyline built off of the World War Two storyline, but you see beautiful hints of the French Revolution storyline peppered throughout them, too The heroines [...]

      The Lost Castle is the beginning of a whole new series by Kristy Cameron called The Lost Castle What a fabulous start to the series I have loved all of the other books by this author and this one does not disappoint I believe it is my favorite that she has written to date The story is so beautifully written and so vivid in detail, I felt like I was right there among the main characters, Avaline, Vi and Ellie.I cannot wait for the next book in the series I give The Lost Castle a well deserved 5 p [...]

    25. Beth Vogt says:

      Against the backdrop of France, Kristy Cambron weaves together the lives of three very different women with vivid emotion Months after reading The Lost Castle, I am still recalling certain scenes that brought me to tears I also appreciated the themes of family, loyalty, and courage.

    26. Brittany says:

      Admittedly, The Lost Castle was a bit of a slow start for me There were three timelines of stories being told and I had to get used to jumping between time periods However, once I fell into the rhythm of the storytelling, I really did enjoy seeing how things came together.All three time periods were interesting to me My favorite storyline, by far, was the tale from the late 1700 s that revolved around Aveline I was always anxious to get back to her story I was not very fond of the story that was [...]

    27. Susan Snodgrass says:

      I fell in love with Cambron s work in her first novel She writes very convincingly in a dual time period This time she again writes in than one time period Three major time periods, but goes back and forth with five, actually I understand why she had to do it for this story, but it was a bit confusing for me I wish she d kept it to just two I think the story could have been told quite well with a dual timeline.Ellie Carver s grandmother is slowly slipping away from Alzheimer s when she begins t [...]

    28. Perfumegirl says:

      This book follows 3 women in 3 time periods It would have been a 5 star read for me except I don t like it when each chapter switches between women and their respective time periods This 1 book could easily have been turned into a trilogy All in all though it was very good.Content language nonesexual noneviolence mild

      This is my first Kristy Cambron book and I can see why so many readers have been singing her praises The Lost Castle is one of the most intelligent mesmerizing books I ve ever read The book has three timelines going with stories of Aveline from the 1780 s, Vi from the 1940 s and Ellie from present day This is a book the reader will have to pay close attention to so as not to miss the clues as the mystery of the castle, The Sleeping Beauty, unfolds As layers of history are peeled back, I found my [...]
