Review of The Last House on the Street


Another amazing book by this author! This is a very impactful story told with dual timelines.

Kayla is preparing to move into her new house that she designed with her husband. Unfortunately Kayla’s husband died in the house in an accident during the building phase so she is understandingly hesitant about the move. She is also getting strange warnings that she shouldn’t move in. The other timeline is with Ellie during the time of the civil rights movement. Ellie’s story is horrifying and heartbreaking. The two stories merge seamlessly. The writing keeps your interest throughout the book and the characters are well rounded. This is an impactful book that will stay with me and is an important time in history we should all know more about and reflect where we are now.
