Review
  • Art historian Keira Foley is back home in Dublin, licking her wounds from the upending of her personal and professional life in New York City. Working in her family’s historic pub, Keira meets a lot of strangers. But then a stranger comes in with an offer she can’t refuse, and too much knowledge of the past she’s trying to forget. Soon, Keira finds herself in the English countryside at a rundown estate, asked to authenticate a recently discovered portrait of Queen Victoria. Questions quickly emerge with the discovery: how did it end up in this crumbling manor? Is it a real Winterhalter or a forgery? And perhaps most vexing of all, why is Keira beginning to fall for the stranger from the pub? The Painted Castle interweaves the present with the past, as two more stories emerge with ties to the queen's portrait. Writing of loss, love, longing, and faith, author Cambron draws a pleasing conclusion to her Lost Castle series (The Lost Castle, 2018). Any inspirational fiction collection will want this series on their shelves. -- LynnDee Wathen (Reviewed 9/13/2019) (Booklist, vol 116, number 1)
  • Cambron (Castle on the Rise) concludes her Lost Castle series at Parham Hill by once again anchoring three distinct stories in three eras to one location in this thrilling tale. In 1843, Elizabeth Meade’s mother is determined to secure an advantageous marriage for her daughter, and Viscount Huxley of Parham Hill appears a most suitable candidate. While disinterested in an arranged marriage, Elizabeth agrees when she realizes the relationship may allow her to finally avenge her father’s murder from a decade earlier. In 1944, Parham Hill’s widowed lady of the manor has created a refuge to children separated from parents by the war. Distressed to find American soldiers taking up residence in her home, Amelia Woods soon learns to trust the commanding officer. Then, in the present-day, art historian Keira Foley soothes a broken heart while tending her father’s Dublin pub. Offered a commission to authenticate a rare portrait of Queen Victoria at Parham Hill, she soon learns that the manor holds secrets deeper than just the painter’s identity. Offering a strong reminder that first impressions do not always tell the whole story, Cambron wraps up her time-swapping series with this delightful portrait of a stately manor over the course of two centuries. Agent: Rachelle Gardner, Books & Such Literary. (Oct.)
