Review: The Lost Castle

The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron
Reviewed by: Jill Hart
Genre: Fiction, Romance
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Publication Date: Feb 6, 2018

Cambron’s books always fascinate me with their intricate plotting and historical detail. In The Lost Castle, she weaves together the past and the present and captures readers’ attention with multiple heroes and heroines. There’s Ellie, a strong and independent modern woman who sets out on a mission to a beloved grandmother’s request.  There is also Vi and Aveline, women of the past who play a part in the adventure Ellie has set out on.

As the pieces fall into place chapter by chapter, Cambron expertly ties these women’s lives together. The book culminates in a beautiful tapestry of strength, sacrifice, and above all, love.


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…

Ellie Carver arrives at her grandmother’s bedside expecting to find her silently slipping away. Instead, the beloved old 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 forgotten 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 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 an enchanted castle that stood witness to it all, inspiring a legacy of faith through the generations.

Rated: PG13 – Sweet, Clean romance.
