Castle on the Rise Blog Tour

Castle on the Rise FB Banner

A storied castle. A band of rebels. A nation chasing a centuries-old dream of freedom. And three women who rise above it all . . .

51HebgejznLWhen 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 Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book. Historical fiction is probably one of my favorite genres to read. The book is kind of a time jump from the 1700's to modern day, covering the lives of three separate women. I enjoyed each character and their stories, however, I struggled to keep up with the characters jumping back and forth each time a new chapter began. I ended up opting to read each character's life separately, by jumping ahead a few chapter's, then going back and reading the next character. I did not have time to just sit and delve into the book as I would have liked, so this manner made it easier for me to keep up with each lady I was reading about and keep the story straight in my head. I also enjoyed the leading male characters, they were very heroic and appealing. 

I was drawn to this book because the cover is beautiful. I love the idea of castles, old world countries, and history. I think Kristy is a wonderful author, and I would definitely read more of her books.
I was blessed with a copy of this book by the author and Celebrate Lit. I was not required to review this book in a positive manner and all opinions are my own.
