    FTC Disclosure I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and publisher Thomas Nelson A positive review was not required These are my honest thoughts and opinions.My heart cries to have to write a negative review for this book Please know this was excruciating to put voice to.The following content broke my heart.The first third was basically an advertisement for Guinness beer, and there were a plethora of other alcoholic references throughout Only one of these was presented as a negative thing This could definitely present issues for recovering alcoholics This line in particular was abrasive and offensive to my faith Not hard to find a welcome here both in the pubs an with the Almighty I did not appreciate the comparison of the completely holy God who created the entire universe to a building in which beer is served.While I m not Catholic, I thoroughly researched a possible inaccuracy and confirmed that research with a guy who s done seven years worth of research into Catholic hierarchy Catholic priests and vicars are not permitted to marry unless they were married prior to becoming a priest or vicar If the Anglican priest vicar was intended, I wish that had been made clearer, as it s possible they are allowe...

    Such an evocative telling of three different yet connected stories I have to admit I struggled with the triple storyline in the first book The Lost Castle, but with this one I found the setting of Ireland so compelling and loved the history I discovered among its pages I don t remember learning about Ireland s struggle for freedom in school, and I am especially grateful to the author for bringing it to life in such a meaningful way It made me want to learn even and follow up with my own research a definite sign for me of an amazing book While I didn t feel connected to the characters emotions in the way that I feel them as well, they were so interesting and I was filled with compassion as I read of their struggles and strength amid adversity This isn t a book you want to read in spurts I did better reading it in longer sittings so I could stay immersed and keep track of the three stories easier As I got deeper into the book the sto...

    Before reading Ireland, this cover, and the author 3 One simply must wait with patience for such a book After reading Irelandland of my ancestors Although I ve never been there, I ve always loved Ireland I still have relatives there and someday I intend on going there and visiting all the gorgeous areas of this country When it comes to this author, you are never without beautiful descriptions, well thought out characters, and stories that connect and weave together until you re left breathless In that aspect there was nothing lost in this sequel of the Lost Castle series I ve been fascinated by the history of how Ireland separated from England for some time and seeing the little details between the centuries truly brought it to life for me Of all three settings, I enjoyed Maeve s the most I absolutely LOVED the Irish accents and be still my heart with Cormac s especially 3Well, I did enjoy this book, I m afraid it fell slightly short compared to the last book and other s I ve read by her...

    Once again, Kristy Cambron amazes me with her ability to weave together not two, but three storylines in three separate time periods And it s not only that she s done the research or found a way to tie each story togetherbut she s made all three compelling and interesting Throw in her usual beautiful writing andjustwow.I d be hard pressed to pick a favorite from the three heroines and their journeys, but Maeve and Eoin s story might be my faveI love Maeve s strength and spirit From a historical standpoint, Issy s storyline was riveting I didn t know much about this period in Ireland s past so my history loving heart and I were glued to the page And Laine s story is so full of heart and hurt turned to hope I really, really loved this book, and I m continually blown away at Kristy Cambron s masterful storytelling Highly recommended Also, oh my goodnessthat cover I received a compliment...

    A couple years ago I had seen a couple books by Kristy Cambron popping up different places I was intrigued by the covers and seeing that some of my friends on Goodreads had read or were reading them, made me even intrigued When the first book read my review for The Lost Castle here in this series showed up on NetGalley, I thought to myself, why not take a chance and see I was completely pulled into the story from the very beginning and couldn t set the book down Then when I came to the end and found out there was going to be a second book in the series, I was ecstatic I d been watching for any signs of it being available, and once again it came available for review on NetGalley I requested it straight away and had it sitting waiting for me until the publication date came closer Can I tell you how hard it was to not pick it up earlier When it came up next on my to read list, I took a deep breath and began reading.If you don t want to read both books and want to jump right into this one, the author wrote it in such a way that it could be a s...

    Set in Ireland over three time periods revolving around three generations of women and their devotion to the castle As much as I wanted to I did not enjoy the story even though I read the first book in the series and enjoyed it much ...

    Castle on the Rise is the second book in the Lost Castle series I m sad to say that I didn t enjoy this one as much as the first book, The Lost Castle I don t know if was the book or just my reading mood, but I had a hard time following all three timelines I also wasn t fond of a few things that happened in the book.I did like the setting It was nice to read a book about Ireland, even if the storyline wasn t a happy one at times All in all, I liked Castle on the Rise but didn t love it Disclosure of Material Connection I received one or of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention review it on my blog I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion which I ve done All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and I only recommend products or services I use personally and beli...

    I thought I d share the best and worst parts of the book, and since three things are equally divided between best and worst, that ll make it easy First, there s the description.Kristy Cambron knows how to paint a vivid picture with words and, much to my delight, without extraneous words Most of the time While there were a few places where I felt like the description slipped a little too close to overdone, for the most part, it couldn t have been perfect.This book spans three centuries stories being told that eventually weave together at the end You can see where they are going what will happen, even but you can t as well Okay, perhaps those very well acquainted with Irish history might be able to I don t know.But here s the thing Without excessive reentry description, every time I turned the page into a different century, I felt as though I was there That takes some serious talent From the late eighteenth century to early twentieth, to present day, it all plays out before you without once feeling as though you re in the wrong century That alone is proof of authorial brilliance Just sayin.Then there s the writing.Again, both the best and the worst parts of the book can be found in this element the writing The worst here is once , just a quibble At first, I thought it was an editing issue After all, I read an ARC and those ar...

    Having read and loved several of Kristy Cambron s books in the past I was excited to read this one, even so once I found it was set in Ireland aka one of my very favorite places to read about I love time slip novels, but to be honest I was a little nervous at first that I would find it difficult to keep up with the three different time periods, but I needn t have worried Kristy wove them all together beautifully and there was never any confusion about which timeline I was reading This one gave me all the feels I was swept away into the world of this book from the first page and hated to leave I have come to expect a stunning, vivid, heart touching read from this author and Castle on the Rise was no exception, this book took me on a journey and I loved every second of it I absolutely loved all three timelines, but I think Issy s POV from 1916 might be my favorite This is definitely one for the keeper shelf, and I anticipate rereading it in the future Even though it is book two in the...

    Ireland has a million stories and if you stay long enough you ll learn them all Heartfelt, shivery sigh Followed by some muffled sobs and inelegant hiccups I need a momentor a weekto recover from this splendiferous read.Heart breaking Awe inspiring Hope lifting Sure and Kristy Cambron must have kissed the blarney stone, her words are that eloquent And greatly enhanced by the narration of Amy Rubinate I listened to the audible version of this book and I m so glad I did It created an evocative mood that heightened Cambron s storytelling prowess This is one book I think reads best when you listen.And the story Well, stories, really three distinct time periods at pivotal points in Irish history Magical and spellbinding I had no trouble jumping between centuries and connected with each hero and heroine Honestly each timeline story could easily have been published as a standalone novelbut the way Cambron weaves them together Impeccable pacing and the way she stops one story at a heart plummeting moment and then picks up with the nextwow I m still experiencing reader whiplash There were times I had to hit pause and collect ...
