    This was a massive story in one book. Three different women, three different eras and rebellion on all fronts. This story packs a wallop, that?s for sure! I enjoyed the dual timelines, the location and the characters. What was hard for me was the grittiness and sadness during the two...

    Such an evocative telling of three different yet connected stories. I have to admit I struggled with the triple storyline in the first book The Lost Castle, but with this one I found the setting of Ireland so compelling and loved the history I discovered among its pages. I don't rememb...

    I thought I'd share the best and worst parts of the book, and since three things are equally divided between best and worst, that?ll make it easy! First, there?s the description. Kristy Cambron knows how to paint a vivid picture with words and, much to my delight, without ext...

    This book takes us through three time periods in Ireland with the location of the same Castle, with the decades spanning the 1700?s through to present, each leaving their mark. Now this is the second book, which I hadn?t realized, but was brought up to date while reading, and now ...

    Once again Kristy Cambron weaves the significant story of one magnificent manor house through three unique stories set during differing time periods. Ashford Manor, located in County Wicklow in Ireland, is a stunning backdrop for the three stories woven together in this complex tale. ...

    Castle on the Rise is the second book in the Lost Castle series. I'm sad to say that I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first book, The Lost Castle. I don't know if was the book or just my reading mood, but I had a hard time following all three timelines. I also wasn't fond of a fe...

    4.5 Kristy Cambron does it again. Castle on the Rise is an exquisite trip through history and ruins, worth every page. ?But there?s something about dreams that don?t need castle ruins or fairy-tale endings to make life beautiful. We can still have the happy while we stand ...

    ?Castle on the Rise? by Kristy Cambron is the second book in the ?Lost Castle? series. It ties in with the first book in the series, ?The Lost Castle,? but can easily be read as a standalone. ?Castle on the Rise? takes place mostly in Ireland and involves three separat...

    Once again, author Kristy Cambron pulled me in from the very beginning of Castle on the Rise with her talent for painting vivid scenes. It's evident she loves Ireland and she wants her readers to fall in love with Ireland too. The novel weaves back and forth between three time periods ...

    Having read and loved several of Kristy Cambron's books in the past I was excited to read this one, even more so once I found it was set in Ireland aka one of my very favorite places to read about! I love time-slip novels, but to be honest I was a little nervous at first that I would f...

    Once again, Kristy Cambron amazes me with her ability to weave together not two, but three storylines in three separate time periods. And it's not only that she's done the research or found a way to tie each story together...but she's made all three compelling and interesting! Throw in...

    This is a beautiful series and I love the characters. It was great that Quinn and Ellie were such a big part of this story and that the setting moved from France to Ireland. Laine is at a crossroads in her life, recently divorced and mother to an adopted child. She comes to Elli...

    Like the first book in the series, Castle on the Rise follows three different timelines and introduces characters who live, love, and must persevere through the trials of their particular era. This story is loosely connected to the first book, however, it can easily be read as a stand ...

    A fantastic read, full of life and love, grounded in Irish history. Strong, well developed characters all fighting their own battles--from personal, familial to political--with deep convictions. A triple timeline that intricately connects and makes the story feel three dimensional, lay...

    This is a read that begs you to take the time to just soak in the atmosphere and the words that appear in front of you, because they're not just words. Ms. Cambron arranges them so artistically that you?re transported to the magical world of Ireland and all that it inspires. Set i...

    The author has visited Ireland while researching for her book. Three time periods feature; modern day, 1916 and 1798, the latter two famous for rebellions. The castle at the heart is a ruin already in 1798 and the family we follow farms the nearby land. Three women are the subjects, an...

    This story is told in 3 different time periods (present day, 1916, and 1798) and follows many characters in Ireland. All the stories involve a crumbling castle and manor near the Irish Sea. The story is very atmospheric, as I read the words, I was swept away to Ireland and felt as t...

    Set in Ireland over three time periods revolving around three generations of women and their devotion to the castle. As much as I wanted to I did not enjoy the story even though I read the first book in the series and enjoyed it much better. This did have a lot of history in it but the...
