Praise For This Book


"Diane Chamberlain is at her absolute best in this dual timeline about Ellie, a young crusader for civil rights in 1965; Kayla, the woman who moves into the house next door 45 years later, and the woods that connect more than just their properties. Sensitively and unflinchingly told, this novel will make you cry, seethe, swoon and rage. I've loved every book Diane Chamberlain has written, but The Last House on The Street is, without doubt, is her masterpiece."-- Sally Hepworth, New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD SISTER

"Diane Chamberlain elegantly braids together two stories, set apart by history, to render this taut, edge-of-your-seat tale of two women reckoning with the dark truth of the land they each call home. As compelling as it is important, the novel's focus on the efforts of a group of college students in the South during the Civil Rights movement will no doubt make it a favorite amongst book clubs everywhere." -- Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of THE WHISPER NETWORK

"A powerful novel of our time, both a searing indictment of racism and the power of humankind and a page-turning thriller. It is a very powerful book. Strong and fierce." -- Cathy Kelly, bestselling author of OTHER WOMEN

"[A] twisty, riveting ride." -People Magazine, People Pick

"Chamberlain (Big Lies in a Small Town) delivers the goods with this affecting and spellbinding account of a community's buried secrets... Chamberlain ratchets up the tension with the ever present mystery of what Ann might be up to, and the dual narratives merge beautifully before an explosive conclusion. This will keep readers enthralled." -Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review)
