Kristy Cambron never fails to weave an intricate story that speaks to my heart at depths that few others do.
I’ve long been drawn to all things World War 2, but I have also been fascinated by the French Revolution since high school — and The Lost Castle takes both of these and winds them together with a modern day setting, creating one of the most unique books I’ve ever read.
Lovely French wine country is the physical setting for much of this book, and I really love how this is the story not only of three different heroines and heroes (in the three different eras)… but also the evolving history of the castle itself.
The characters are real and endearing, and my heart ached for their hardships. The three-storylines-that-are-actually-all-one left me in awe, and I’m sad that it’s fiction.
This book, for me, is like this amazing bread that I’ve made, brioche au chocolat loaf (not a typo.. it’s French). I will post a photo because that will do more than a description, especially when I’ve already talked about this beautiful book.
