About the Book

Book: The Painted Castle

Author: Kristy Cambron

Genre: Historical Romance

Release Date: October 15, 2019

Bestselling author Kristy Cambron concludes the Lost Castle novels with this sweeping tale of art and secrets long buried in England.

It was supposed to be a one-week job: survey an art find, collect a hefty fee, and use that to settle historian Kiera Foley’s life back into balance. But from the moment she sets foot in the East Suffolk countryside, the mysteries surrounding the old English manor and the enigmatic art thief who’s employed her stir more questions than answers. Then, Kiera finds the existence of a portrait captivating enough to upend all of her expectations. This one could be a twin-a painting so close in composition to a known masterpiece, it may be rendered priceless if it truly captured the likeness of a young Queen named Victoria.

Set in three time periods-the rapid change of Victorian England, the tumultuous skies over England’s eastern shores in WWII, and modern day-The Painted Castle unfolds a legacy of faith, family, and stories that are generations in the making.

My Review

Cambron interweaves the three timelines with the skill of an experienced story weaver. Each could stand alone as a novella, yet they are interconnected. Set in Victorian England, modern day, and on the homefront at the end of World War II, the three stories are skillfully written to keep the readers engaged. Cambron creates engaging characters and pens descriptive narratives about artwork and castles, as well as historical detail for the 1840s and 1940s. Although The Painted Castle can be read as a standalone, the characters from the earlier books: Lost Castle and Castle on the Rise, make an appearance.
