  • Amazing! You will need to keep the box of tissues handy and a lump in your throat is guaranteed! What does a grandmother with Alzheimer's, an 18th century French woman and the grandmother's granddaughter all have in common? How about foxes,French wine and a brooch ? This story about the Sleeping Beauty is remarkable, partly based on fact part fairy tale. Beautiful sumptuous you will swear you are there with the vivid descriptions described within. Three story lines taking place here that I'll ad [...]


  • 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.


  • 4.5 starsWhen 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 [...]


  • 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 inconv [...]


  • 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!


  • 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 woma [...]


  • “The Lost Castle” by Kristy Cambron is one of those rare books that I am still thinking about days after I've finished reading it! I had heard so many good things about this author, so when I saw she was writing a story centered on a ruined castle I had to read it! I love castles—my wedding took place in a castle-like building and my dream vacation was to Scotland to see castles, of course!"The Lost Castle" by Kristy Cambron is the first in the "Lost Castle" series. The beginning immediate [...]


  • 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" [...]


  • 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 more 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 [...]


  • "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 Valle [...]


  • 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 ca [...]


  • 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, Château des Doux-Rêves. I love how easily I [...]


  • 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 an [...]

  • Life Fully Booked review of The Lost Castle : Read full review hereThe Lost Castle is an achingly exquisite tale about love, loss, and family. Cambron’s ability to paint pictures with words will entrance readers and take you on a journey you will never forget.


  • 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 [...]


  • Kristy Cambron captured my heart with her debut album The Butterfly and the Violin and I have been following her ever since, reading each of her novels as they come out. I was ecstatic to be accepted to read the ARC for The Lost Castle prior to its publication. What a beautiful piece of literature this is!The Lost Castle timelessly weaves together three stories of three women in the picturesque French countryside of the Loire Valley, around a castle that encompasses the French Revolution, World [...]


  • “I think all along, it’s what she was trying to tell me. That the story we’re writing in this life, day by day, it’s a gift from God and we can’t afford to waste a moment of it.” -EllieThe meshing of three stories, each in a unique time period, into one book is a work of art in this latest novel by Kristy Cambron. In the year 1789 we meet Aveline Saint-Moreau, wealthy and beautiful young aristocrat, engaged to be married to Philippe, the Duc et Vivay’s heir; followed by Viola Hart, [...]


  • 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 extr [...]


  • Goodness me, what a jumble of emotions I’m processing right now! Tears, smiles, the lot! It’s safe to say you’re getting a lot of bang for your story buck with this latest release from Kristy Cambron. Not just two, but THREE different time periods weaving together to flesh out the story of the silent character in this novel: Château des Doux-Rêves—the castle of sweet dreams, or more affectionately, The Sleeping Beauty.Through the years this castle bears witness to joy and sorrow, fear [...]



  • 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 more off of the World War Two storyline, but you see beautiful hints of the French Revolution storyline peppered throughout them, too. Th [...]


  • I'm a historical Christian fiction lover, but sometimes I find the multiple time lines hard to follow. However, reading this beautifully moving novel by the very talented Kristy Cambron was so easy to follow and was absolutely captivating. This book has what I call "all the feels". It's incredibly detailed, with characters that are chiseled magnificently. Each time line brings the reader to a character that will make way into your heart and stay their long after the book is finished. The beautif [...]


  • 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 deserve [...]


  • 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.


  • 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 t [...]


  • 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 more 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 sh [...]


  • 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


  • A castle in a forest inspires the stories of three women, scattered across centuries. Adeline is engaged to a Duke in 18th century France, though her opinions are more aligned with the “rabble” than the wealthy aristocracy to which she will belong. But when the Duke’s castle is burned by angry serfs, and Adeline as well, on the night of her engagement party, she must hide and find a new identity until her fiance returns.Viola was witness to a bombing at her office in London during WWII and [...]


  • 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 foun [...]
