About the Book

Title: Castle on the Rise

Author: Kristy Cambron

51HebgejznL

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: February 5, 2019

Publisher: HarperCollins

A storied castle. A band of rebels. A nation chasing a centuries-old dream of freedom. And three women who rise above it all . . .

When Laine Forrester travels overseas to attend her best friend’s vineyard wedding, she expects to find the bride on the brink of a fairy tale life. But after a series of unforeseen setbacks, it seems the storybook lives they’d imagined are suddenly ripping apart.

With hopes of resurrecting a happy ending, Laine agrees to accompany the newlyweds to the groom’s home in Ireland—never expecting she’d be the one drawn in by its wide-open moors, backroads bordering the Irish Sea, and a mysterious castle that dares to keep its secrets hidden.

From the storied streets of Dublin to the shores of the Emerald Isle, Laine is drawn in to the land and its rich history. The castle ruins whisper stories of Issy—a photojournalist battling through the 1916 Easter Rising, and Maeve—the castle’s lady of legend, fighting for survival through the 1798 rebellion that started it all.

Spanning more than two centuries, Castle on the Rise unites the legacy of three women who must risk mending the broken places within—for life, love, and the belief that even through the depths of our pain, a masterpiece of a story can emerge.

My Perspective

Cambron is a masterful story teller. I have yet to read a book of hers that I did not love, and this story was no exception. I do have to admit, at first I was a little overwhelmed by it. Three story lines to follow along? I wasn’t quite sure I’d be able to keep up, no matter how good of a reader I am. It did take a few chapters of each story for me to get the gist of it all, and be able to allow my mind to wander between them, but I got it and it was so worth it!

I really can’t decide which story I liked the best. Each one had an element I could connect with, and had my complete attention. Like I said, Cambron is a master at story telling. Characters aside, I have to give kudos to her ability to transport me to Ireland in three different time periods. It was absolutely breathtaking, and has increased my desire to want to travel the world to see all these magnificent castles she has in her books! I imagine it’s probably a little intimidating to be writing about such beautiful places, but Cambron just does it with ease.

Readers will not be able to tear themselves away from this story! I highly recommend that you read this, and take your time doing so. I found myself trying to rush through it, but almost felt like I was missing out. Take the time to give each story the attention it deserves. You won’t regret it!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. I really liked The Lost Castle so have been wanting to read Castle on the Rise. Kristy is an excellent writer and I just love those covers.

  2. I have a habit of rushing through books. Three timelines is a lot, but I think I’d like it better than the last book I read — which had 7 perspectives and 2 timelines!
