A thirteenth century castle, Chateau de Doux Reves, has been forgotten for generations, left to ruin in a storybook forest nestled deep in France’s picturesque Loire Valley. It survived a sacking in the French Revolution, was brought back to life and fashioned into a storybook chateau in the Gilded Age, and was eventually felled and deserted after a disastrous fire in the early 1930s.
As Ellie Carver sits by her grandmother’s bedside, she hears stories of a castle and lost love, stories of a hidden chapel that played host to a secret fight in the World War II French resistance. But her grandmother is quickly slipping into the locked-down world of Alzheimer’s, and Ellie must act fast if she wants to uncover the truth of her family’s history.
Upon convincing her editor at the newspaper this is a story only she can write, Ellie embarks on a journey to wine country to uncover the mystery surrounding The Sleeping Beauty, so named from Charles Perrault’s beloved fairy tale, and unearth the secrets of the castle before they're finally lost by time.
Set in three different time periods—the French Revolution, World War II, and present day—The Lost Castle is a story of love won and lost, battles waged, and an enchanted castle that inspired the epic fairy tales time left behind.
