This is my first book by this author and my first book in the Lost Castle series. The book can definitely be read as a stand-alone without any fear of not understanding the story. The authors love for art and architecture shines through and her tribute to fighters in the war is not one to be missed. Each timeline had it’s appeal each heroine different in her own rights. All connected to each other by one painting. This story pulled in me from the start with its rich and vivid descriptions and wonderful characters that hold you captive wanting to know their story. I loved every bit of it. I love how she seamlessly weaves together each timeline and each tale that you don’t miss out on anything. A wonderful blend of mystery, romance and suspense. Their individual search for truth, their struggles especially with loving again and their desire for the best for the people around them resonated throughout this story. Will definitely be picking up the other two in this series but this was an absolute delight.
