The Last Train to Key West is another exceptional story by Cleeton, who has quickly become a favorite among historical fiction fans. When the lives of three women from vastly different circumstances intersect even as the winds from the ocean threaten devastation, secrets are exposed, love is questioned and new life emerges even as others are in danger. Cleeton has fashioned a story that is gripping, romantic, and packed with drama. Readers will be up late eager to find out what happens!

The Last Train to Key West takes you on an incredible and emotion-charged journey through the lives of three women facing a catastrophic hurricane that changes them forever – and shows them how courageous they really are. This book has everything a reader could want: not one but three incredible love stories, page-turning drama and rich historical detail. I finished the last chapter with a sigh of satisfaction that only a great book can bring about
Stephanie Thornton
As turbulent as the Labor Day hurricane itself, The Last Train to Key West weaves a gripping tale of survival and strength when three women are forced to ride out one of the most powerful storms in history. Lush, atmospheric, and suspenseful, Chanel Cleeton's latest is not to be missed!

I struggled through this book. The description had me intrigued and I requested it, but then I couldn't seem to get into the story.
I'm sure many will like it and it does lend itself to a book club discussion, just didn't catch me.
Thank you NetGalley for this book

Really looking forward to this one!

Ahhhh how am I just now finding out about this? I love Cleeton's Cuban-American historical fiction novels and have no doubt this one will be amazing as well!

This historical fiction book focuses on the Florida Keys over Labor Day 1935, when a treacherous hurricane hits with little warning. Henry Flagler's railroad is also featured in the story. Three women rotate the storytelling. Helen is a Key West native, pregnant, a waitress at the local diner, and a victim of spousal abuse. Mirta arrives from her native Cuba with her new husband, an arranged marriage to save her broke family. Elizabeth is on the Flagler train from New York City to Key West, ...more

I was lucky enough to win this ARC from Chanel Cleeton via her IG and read it in about two hours—I couldn’t put it down. The writing was so descriptive that I could picture the story unfolding as if it were a movie in my mind. The stories intertwine so seemlessly and there is a central theme of “hope” present throughout. The ending was more than I expected and I finished it researching Key West for a trip. This might be my favorite book of hers yet.
