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:

"It's been a long time since I've been so thoroughly engrossed in a novel . . . The Lost Castle kept me spellbound!" -Tamera Alexander

"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
