The Last House On The Street By Diane Chamberlain

The Last House On The Street By Diane Chamberlain


1965. A young white female student becomes involved in the fight for civil rights in North Carolina, falling in love with one of her fellow activists, a Black man, in a time and place where an interracial relationship must be hidden from family, friends and especially the reemerging Ku Klux Klan. As tensions rise in the town, she realises not everyone is who they appear to be.

2010. A recently widowed architect moves into the home she and her late husband designed, heartbroken that he will never cross the threshold. But when disturbing things begin to happen, it’s clear that someone is sending her a warning. Who is trying to frighten her away, and why?

Decades later, past and present are set to collide in the last house on the street…

My Thoughts:

This is my first book by Diane and I found it was an ok read, it explores racism and the power of human kind. I liked the story but it didn’t blow me away. I was intrigued with the first half about where the story was going but after that I found it a little slow. I read until the end only because I wanted to find out about the last house on the street. I liked how past and present intertwined with each other through out the story, but I felt as though it lacked something.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
