"The Castle Keepers" is an amazing collaberation of three authors, Aimie K. Runyan, J’nell Ciessielski, and Rachel McMillan describing three time periods 1870, 1917, and 1945 at
Leedswick Castle, in England, where the Ainwick family has resided.
I am a fan of
Aimie K. Runyan's novels, and I loved her novella taking place in 1870. Both J'nell Ciessielski and Rachel Mcmillan are new authors for me to read, and I enjoyed their novellas as well.
The common thread besides the family name, is the curse of a war, and the belief that the castle is cursed because of the family. Three different women from three timelines have to show their bravery and courage.
The genres for this book are
Historical Fiction, Women's Fiction,and Romance. The location for this story is mostly in England, at
Leedswick Castle. Do you believe that a castle can be cursed? The authors, in their own way, vividly describe their colorful and dramatic characters as complex and complicated. Some are brave and courageous.
Some are greedy and ruthless. There is loyalty, betrayals, danger and death. All wars are tragic and devasting and are the cause of devastation of the people and their properties.
I love that there are three different storylines and timetables in this novel.
I highly recommend this intriguing, memorable, and thought-provoking book for others.
