The Painted Castle


by Kristy Cambron

A lost painting of Queen Victoria. A library bricked off from the world. And three women, separated by time, whose lives are irrevocably changed.

When art historian Keira Foley is hired to authenticate a painting at a centuries-old East Suffolk manor, she hopes this is just the thing to get her career and life back on track. But from the time she arrives at Parham Hill Estate and begins working alongside rumored art thief Emory Scott, she’s left with far more questions than answers. Could this lost painting of Queen Victoria be a duplicate of the original Winterhalter masterpiece, and if so, who is the artist?

As Keira begins to unravel the mystery behind the portrait, two women emerge from the estate’s forgotten past. In Victorian England, talented sketch artist Elizabeth Meade is engaged to Viscount Huxley, then owner of Parham Hill. However, Elizabeth’s real motive for being at Parham Hill has nothing to do with art or marriage. She’s determined to avenge her father’s brutal murder—even if it means a betrothal to the very man she believes committed the crime.

A century later, Amelia Woods—a World War II widow who has turned Parham Hill and its beloved library into a boarding school for refugee children—receives military orders to house a troop of American pilots. She is determined the children in her care will remain untouched by the war, but the task is proving difficult with officers taking up every square inch of their world . . . and one in particular vying for a space in Amelia’s long-shut up heart.

Set in three time periods—the rapid change of Victorian England, the peak of England’s home-front tensions at the end of WWII, and modern day—The Painted Castle unfolds a story of heartache and hope and unlocks secrets lost for generations just waiting to be found.

Praise for The Painted Castle:

“A gripping tale of secrets hidden behind the walls of an ancient English castle.” —KATE BRESLIN, bestselling author of Far Side of the Sea

  1. Paula Shreckhise

    I have read ALL of Jaime’s books. I won’t miss any of hers. They are sooooo creepy good!
    I have The Edge of Mercy and The Painted Castle on my kindle. Can’t wait to read them. Considering Mindy’s book. I thought I had it.

    • Morgan Tarpley Smith

      I agree, Paula!! I’ve read all of Jaime Jo’s too and loved them. I’ve read all of Kristy’s except the newest one and almost all of Heidi’s. Leslie and Mindy’s book is on my TBR for this year. It looks good!

  2. Perrianne Askew

    I also have read ALL of Jaime Jo Wright’s books, they’re just so mysteriously creepy. I love them! I have also read The Edge of Mercy which is fantastic! I am not very far into The Orchard House and so far it’s excellent as well. I have also read all of her books but hers are different and show the care that Heidi Chiavaroli takes with her research. I definitely need to read a Kristy Cambron book.

    • Morgan Tarpley Smith

      Awesome, Perrianne! I just read The Orchard House too and it’s fantastic. I’m looking forward to reading The Paris Dressmaker by Kristy Cambron. I love The Lost Castle series by her.
