    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 rememb...

    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 ext...

    This 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 ...

    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 fe...

    "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 moment...or a week...to recover from this splendiferous read. Heart-breaking. Awe-inspiring. Hope-lifting. Sur...

    4.5 Kristy Cambron does it again. Castle on the Rise is an exquisite trip through history and ruins, worth every page. ?But there?s something about dreams that don?t need castle ruins or fairy-tale endings to make life beautiful. We can still have the happy while we stand ...

    ?Castle on the Rise? by Kristy Cambron is the second book in the ?Lost Castle? series. It ties in with the first book in the series, ?The Lost Castle,? but can easily be read as a standalone. ?Castle on the Rise? takes place mostly in Ireland and involves three separat...

    Once again, author Kristy Cambron pulled me in from the very beginning of Castle on the Rise with her talent for painting vivid scenes. It's evident she loves Ireland and she wants her readers to fall in love with Ireland too. The novel weaves back and forth between three time periods ...

    Having read and loved several of Kristy Cambron's books in the past I was excited to read this one, even more 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 f...

    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 together...but she's made all three compelling and interesting! Throw in...

    "Ashford Manor was a time capsule hidden in the Irish countryside". . . . . .a castle overlooking a span of cliffs and exploding surf below". It was a castle on the rise. When a reclusive pub customer bequeaths her entire castle estate to a family broken apart by grief and misunders...

    A fantastic read, full of life and love, grounded in Irish history. Strong, well developed characters all fighting their own battles--from personal, familial to political--with deep convictions. A triple timeline that intricately connects and makes the story feel three dimensional, lay...

    This is a read that begs you to take the time to just soak in the atmosphere and the words that appear in front of you, because they're not just words. Ms. Cambron arranges them so artistically that you?re transported to the magical world of Ireland and all that it inspires. Set i...

    The author has visited Ireland while researching for her book. Three time periods feature; modern day, 1916 and 1798, the latter two famous for rebellions. The castle at the heart is a ruin already in 1798 and the family we follow farms the nearby land. Three women are the subjects, an...

    This story is told in 3 different time periods (present day, 1916, and 1798) and follows many characters in Ireland. All the stories involve a crumbling castle and manor near the Irish Sea. The story is very atmospheric, as I read the words, I was swept away to Ireland and felt as t...

    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 better. This did have a lot of history in it but the...

    WHY I CHOOSE THIS BOOK Kristy Cambron's books and I have a strange relationship, yet despite that I always find myself wanting to read her latest release and get lost in her lovely writing. The first book in this series, Lost Castle, was one of my favorites Miss Kristy has written,...

    Can I take a tour of castles all over the world please? Unfortunately my pocket book won?t allow that but I can at least Journey to Ireland in the pages of this book. The castle isn?t as focal in this book as the first but then setting descriptions are just as beautiful. Because of...

    Honestly pretty bummed about this one. There were moments of deep, heartrending poignancy . . . but they were scattered gems in an otherwise dull & sluggish plot. The last third of the book, though. *deep breath* I Felt Things. :P I love Kristy Cambron's books, but this late...

    Castle on the Rise is a dramatic mix of three stories in three time periods, all set in the same part of Ireland.This is definitely not a quiet stroll through the Irish countryside! All three stories are stacked full of events and emotions and I lost count of the number of cliffhangers...
