Guys, if you haven’t watched any of Kristy Cambron’s coffee chat FB live videos, you are missing out. I love this authors heart for God, His Word, her readers, and so much more. You can join Kristy Cambron’s Readers Corner here.
And if you’re around Tuesday evening (Feb 13), drop by the Facebook party to celebrate the new releases of not one, not two, but three authors! The Valentine’s Day Book Bash for conversation, prizes, and more!
Now that I’ve shared a couple fun ways to connect with the author of today’s highlighted book, let me tell you a little bit about The Lost Castle…
In My Opinion
Kristy Cambron returns to the time slip genre in a big way. This time she’s tackling three time periods—the start of the French Revolution, pre-D-day World War II, and present day.
A castle known as the Sleeping Beauty (come on, how can you not want to read this story with that name alone?) ties these women together through centuries and generations. Each of the main characters faces challenges but it’s in the grove surrounding the castle they discover their strength, dreams, and hearts desires.
Cambron is a master at weaving these individual stories together to create one of her own—one with speaks of a firm foundation. One that stands through our bruised and battered lives, no matter our trials and struggles.
Don’t miss this beautiful new series.

About the Book
Launching a brand-new series, Kristy Cambron explores the collision of past and present as she discovers the ruins of a French castle, long lost to history.
A thirteenth century castle, Chateau de Doux Reves, has been forgotten for generations, left to ruin in a storybook forest nestled deep in France’s picturesque Loire Valley. It survived a sacking in the French Revolution, was brought back to life and fashioned into a storybook chateau in the Gilded Age, and was eventually felled and deserted after a disastrous fire in the 1930s.
As Ellie Carver sits by her grandmother’s bedside, she hears stories of a castle . . . of lost love and a hidden chapel that played host to a secret fight in the World War II French resistance. But her grandmother is quickly slipping into the locked-down world of Alzheimer’s, and Ellie must act fast if she wants to uncover the truth of her family’s history.
Sparked by the discovery of a long forgotten family heirloom, Ellie embarks on a journey to French wine country to uncover the mystery surrounding The Sleeping Beauty–the castle so named for Charles Perrault’s beloved fairy tale–and unearth its secrets before they’re finally silenced by time.
Set in three different 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, and an enchanted castle that inspired the epic fairy tales time left behind.

i think Cinderella because even when she’s a cinder girl, she has the grace and dignity of a princess. being diminished to a servant doesn’t and can’t change who she really is – a princess.

I love Beauty and the Beast – the romance, the magic of the castle and the LIBRARY. My sister and I watched it for an entire summer when we were younger, and it is easily one of my favorites. I also love Cinderella, especially the Rodger & Hammerstein’s musical in the ’90s.

Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite fairy tale. I love Belle’s heart and her quiet strength. She also loved books!

I saw a version of Beauty and the Beast introduced by Shirley Temple on what I think was called Shirley Temple’s Fairy Tale Theatre probaly in the late 50s or early 60s. Although I don’t remember much about it I rememberI loved it.
I think I would have to say Cinderella. What poor girl in difficult circumstances wouldn’t love her prince to come rescue her.
