– THE LAST TRAIN TO KEY WEST by Chanel Cleeton
Style: Historic Fiction
In 1935, the lives of three ladies, Helen, Mirta and Elizabeth, are without end modified after the highly effective “Labor Day” hurricane sweeps via the Florida keys. Will they and their family members survive the brutal storm?
I used to be completely engrossed by this story primarily based on precise, historic occasions and was rooting for all three ladies as they handled life’s challenges. The outline of the hurricane was terrifying and made me really feel like I used to be there myself clinging to a raft for expensive life because the rising ocean swirled round me. Gasp. I beloved the historic side, particularly since I would by no means heard of the Bonus Military. The ending was a bit too tidy for my tastes however since I used to be so entertained by the remainder of the story, it did not trouble me this time. Should you love intense tales with completely happy endings, then do not miss this one!
Should you’re desirous to know extra in regards to the bootleggers throughout Prohibition talked about on this story, then I might extremely suggest The Depraved Metropolis (four stars) and its followup, The Depraved Redhead (four stars), by Beatriz Williams.
