Description

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.

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.

Praise for The Lost Castle:

“Spanning the French Revolution, World War II and today, Cambron masterfully carries us into each period with all the romance and danger of the best fairy tale.” (Katherine Reay)

Enchanting!

The author expertly weaves the past and present, fact and fiction, fairy tale and harsh reality into one intriguing story that spans three generations. The castle binds all the lives of the characters together. It is the nexus where they discover their true selves. This book will aid anyone who is on a journey of discovery, anyone who feels the need to rebuild after tragedy or the loss of someone special. The magic of the castle can provide comfort and direction as you travel the difficult road ahead.

Would be better as a reading book

I really enjoyed this story, although it was a bit hard to follow as an audio book. It jumps between three different time periods, and even though the narrator does a very good job, it can be hard to follow what time period of the story you are listening to. On this one, I recommend reading (not listening) the book!

Nice story.

This story took a bit getting into, but once I was a few chapters in, I really enjoyed the story. The characters took a bit to get used to as well, in my opinion. It was difficult for me to really like the main female character and I actually never really warmed up to her.

The story was well written and traveled pretty quickly. Not too many slow parts because of the history woven throughout the book.

The narration was alright but nothing that distracted from the story.

Interesting story

I really liked the story. I think reading it would be better. Listening I would get confused as to what one period we are in.
