The Lost Castle A Split-Time Romance By Kristy Cambron Review

The Lost Castle
A Split-Time Romance
By Kristy Cambron
Launching a brand-new series, Kristy Cambron explores the collision of past and present as she discovers the ruins of a French castle, long lost to history.

A thirteenth century castle, Chateau de Doux Reves, has been forgotten for generations, left to ruin in a storybook forest nestled deep in France's picturesque Loire Valley. It survived a sacking in the French Revolution, was brought back to life and fashioned into a storybook chateau in the Gilded Age, and was eventually felled and deserted after a disastrous fire in the 1930s.

As Ellie Carver sits by her grandmother's bedside, she hears stories of a castle . . . of lost love and a hidden chapel that played host to a secret fight in the World War II French resistance. But her grandmother is quickly slipping into the locked-down world of Alzheimer's, and Ellie must act fast if she wants to uncover the truth of her family's history.

Sparked by the discovery of a long forgotten family heirloom, Ellie embarks on a journey to French wine country to uncover the mystery surrounding The Sleeping Beauty--the castle so named for Charles Perrault's beloved fairy tale--and unearth its secrets before they're finally silenced by time.

Set in three different time periods--the French Revolution, World War II, and present day--The Lost Castle is a story of loves won and lost, of battles waged, and an enchanted castle that inspired the epic fairy tales time left behind.

Cassandra's Review- Beauty unfolds in a heart wrenching way.  Buried underneath layers of story there is so much more. I like that the author chose to add heart to the pages of this book and create a place that the reader can fix on while forgetting the rest of the world for just a bit.

It’s finally 2018, and I’ve resolved to have more little moments of celebration in the New Year. 

We all look forward to the big celebrations, like Christmas, New Year’s and July 4th. But did you know there are so many other quirky holidays on the calendar just begging to be commemorated? What about a slice of garlic bread for National Garlic Day? Some pet cuddles for National Cat Day?
