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

Kristy Cambron

"It's been a long time since I've been so thoroughly engrossed in a novel ... The Lost Castle kept me spellbound!" -Tamera Alexander, USA TODAY bestselling author of To Whisper Her Name and Christmas at Carnton

Broken-down walls and crumbling stones seemed to possess a secret language all their own.

What stories would they tell, if she finally listened?

Ellie Carver arrives at her grandmother's bedside expecting to find her silently slipping away. Instead, the beloved woman begins speaking. Of a secret past and castle ruins forgotten by time. Of a hidden chapel that served as a rendezvous for the French Resistance in World War II. Of lost love and deep regret ...

Each piece that unlocks the story seems to unlock part of Ellie too-where she came from and who she is becoming. But her grandmother is quickly disappearing into the shadows of Alzheimer's and Ellie must act fast if she wants to uncover the truth of her family's history. Drawn by the mystery surrounding The Sleeping Beauty-a castle so named for Charles Perrault's beloved fairy tale-Ellie embarks on a journey to France's Loire Valley in hopes that she can unearth its secrets before time silences them forever.

Bridging the past to the present in three 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 in the hearts of men, and of an enchanted castle that stood witness to it all, inspiring a legacy of faith through the generations.

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.
