Waiting on Wednesday | Thirteenth Edition

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Hello, readers and followers! Happy Wednesday. Welcome. It's another Wednesday, which means there's another fun meme making the blogging rounds. Today's feature is all about the books we're "Waiting On" with Can't Wait Wednesday. A meme Finding Wonderland occasionally takes part in.

Organized by the lovelyTressa of Wishful Endings, here's another edition of Can't Wait Wednesday

The Brave, Episodes 1-6 (2017) – First Impressions of NBC’s Military Drama

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)

Today, we're taking a trip into the past with a novel that jumps from three different time periods. All of which seem unrelated at first blush, but anyone who's read a novel by Kristy will know, she'll connect everything and everyone seamlessly. 

Author: Kristy Cambron | Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Fiction; Historical Fiction, Contemporary Fiction
Publication Date: February 2018

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.- Goodreads
