Review: Castle of Dreams by Elise McCune.



“An enthralling novel of love, betrayals, loss and family secrets”

A ruined castle deep in the rainforest holds a secret that unites three generations of women: two sisters who find themselves in love with the same man as the Second World War rages and, decades later, a young woman determined to uncover the secrets in her grandmother’s hidden past.


To start with Castle of Dreams has the most beautiful cover. I know many readers, my self included, who have bought books for cover-love. In this case, the story doesn’t disappoint.

Set in the Northern Queensland rainforest, it is an enchanting and compelling read.

It took me on a journey through the lives of three generations of women, revealing secrets and bitter betrayals, and ultimately the love that is the glue that held them together.

I think it’s special for me because, over the years, I’ve often been to the castle on which Elise McCune has based her story.

I highly recommend this book and eagerly anticipate Elise McCune’s next novel.
