About the Book

Title: Castle on the Rise
Author: Kristy Cambron
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 Review
 




The book takes us through three time periods in Ireland with the location of the same Castle, with the decades spanning the 1700’s through to present, each leaving their mark.
Now this is the second book, which I hadn’t realized, but was brought up to date while reading, and now need to go back and read!
The author presents us with three strong women, and the battles and sacrifices that are made for those they love and care about.
A beautiful description of Ireland, I could almost see what the author was describing, and feel the bullets flying. We are there to witness all these struggles, and now waiting for the conclusion in the third book, which can’t come soon enough!

I received this book through Celebrate Lit, and was not required to give a positive review
