    I love this author's evocative writing style, making it easy to get lost in a different era. The three different stories all focus on a strong female- Aveline, an aristocrat in hiding during the French Revolution, Vi, who is on a mission and also in hiding in Nazi-occupied France, and ...

    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 the French Revolution, WWII and t...

    I loved this book. The cover was enough to get my attention. But the story...my 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 hi...

    ?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?...

    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 m...

    Where Kristy really shines, and what I love to see included in stories, is the five-senses details she uses to enrich her stories. Details show the craftsmanship--in things like violets and beautiful houses, in a mint dress and barrel roll curls, in Ellie's boots, the taste of a pear, ...

    Bien joue (Well done). Three story lines are beautifully blended together in The Lost Castle. A castle in Loire Valley, France is the connector between the three. In the late 18th century, Aveline is surviving as a member of the upper class during the revolution. In 1944, Violet...

    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 ...

    After the last time I got burned on a historical novel, I was wary to start a new one, but 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. Yo...

    I was intrigued by the beginning of this novel and was soon swept away by the loveliness of the ethereal setting I found within its pages. Three women. Three different time periods. Each of them equally captivating. Kristy has taken her writing to a whole new level with this nove...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Confession...I'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 de...

    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...

    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 ...

    I have one word for this book - 'Beautiful'. And to be honest that doesn't cover the feelings I have for this piece of literature. I had requested this book on netgalley, as the cover was beautiful. But I wasn't prepared enough. Historical fiction isn't really my thing and I didn'...
