A Split-Time Romance (#01 in The Lost Castle Series)

Kristy Cambron

$18.99

Paperback
:

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, Château de Doux Rêves, 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.

Triple-timeline romance
5 stars By Iola, Mar 20 2018
The Lost Castle is a split-time romance with a difference. I've read several dual-timeline romances, but this is the first with three timelines, all three centering around a mysterious lost castle in the Loire Valley, France-an area famous for wine and chateaux.

The oldest timeline is set amongst the French nobility in 1789, the eve of the Revolution.

The middle timeline is settowards the end of World War II, shortly before D-Day (well, I knew D-Day was coming even though the characters didn't). 

The modern story is that of Ellison Carver-Ellie. Ellie was raised by her grandmother, Lady Vi, who is now confined to an Alzheimer's unit, but who has a request for Ellie: go to France, find the Sleeping Beauty castle, and discover the significance of the castle and the handsome man in the photograph.

The writing is spectacular, especially the descriptions of 1789 France. This was definitely my favourite of the three timelines, because it's a less common period to read about. I also enjoyed the Christian theme of God's faithfulness woven throughout the three timelines.

The Lost Castle takes Cambron's talents in writing and researching, and brings the French Revolution and D-Day France to life. Recommended for readers looking for Christian fiction that's a little out of the ordinary.
