As a child, did you enjoy getting lost in the pages of a fairytale bedtime story? Did your favorite stories usually include beautiful princesses and enchanted castles? What if you could once again, as an adult, become engrossed in a story that holds princesses and lost castles, yet also powerful themes of redemption, courage, seeking truth, following God’s lead, and so much more? “The Lost Castle” was written by the amazing and talented Kristy Cambron and published by Thomas Nelson in 2018. Interestingly, this remarkable story is set in not one, not two, but three different time periods: 1789, 1944, 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.” Doesn’t this description just beg you to find a copy and dive into its pages, immersing yourself in a sweeping saga that spans generations? Or at least, that’s exactly how I felt when my long wait for its publication was over! Although the triple storyline takes a little time to get used to, I loved how each one eventually tied together in a beautiful and tear-jerking finale, leaving you wondering how you didn’t realize the answers to the secrets all along.
The pages of “The Lost Castle” hold so much life within them… The terror and loss of war, the sweet trust of newfound love, the heartache of loved ones leaving us, and the wonder of uncovering secrets from generations past all weave in and out of each chapter. If you are a reader who loved fairytales as a child (and maybe still do!) or if you simply enjoy beautifully written Christian novels that not only share a compelling story but also point us towards the God who loves us, you certainly won’t want to miss Kristy Cambron’s best work yet!
