Publisher's Summary

One of Bustle's Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2020

"The perfect riveting summer read!" (BookBub)

In 1935, three women are forever changed when one of the most powerful hurricanes in history barrels toward the Florida Keys.

For the tourists traveling on Henry Flagler’s legendary Overseas Railroad, Labor Day weekend is an opportunity to forget the economic depression gripping the nation. But one person’s paradise can be another’s prison, and Key West-native Helen Berner yearns to escape.

After the Cuban Revolution of 1933 leaves Mirta Perez’s family in a precarious position, she agrees to an arranged marriage with a notorious American. Following her wedding in Havana, Mirta arrives in the Keys on her honeymoon. While she can’t deny the growing attraction to her new husband, his illicit business interests may threaten not only her relationship, but her life.

Elizabeth Preston's trip to Key West is a chance to save her once-wealthy family from their troubles after the Wall Street crash. Her quest takes her to the camps occupied by veterans of the Great War and pairs her with an unlikely ally on a treacherous hunt of his own.

Over the course of the holiday weekend, the women’s paths cross unexpectedly, and the danger swirling around them is matched only by the terrifying force of the deadly storm threatening the Keys.

need True male voices performing the book

I enjoyed the book, I enjoyed the female characters but why can't they have a real man in the male parts /why do they have a female that sounds identicle to the female characters reading the male parts, it's very uncomfortable why didn't somebody preview the audible book?

Interesting stories individually and combined

I like that different voices did the 3 women, easy to keep track of which character's story was being told.

What an incredible book

I'm a big fan of Chanel Cleeton and this story blew me away. As a native Floridian it was amazing to learn about the Labor Day Hurricane and veterans impacted. The heroines in the book were brilliantly woven in.

the best

this was by far Ms Cleeton's best work. i felt the characters were exactly like people one would meet on the street, in a coffee shop or on a beach.

Loved this book!

I loved reading this book. The plot was very easy to follow and it was a light read. It follows the story of three different women facing different situations in their lives. Their paths unknowingly intertwine with one another and I love that as the reader you are able to keep track of their stories without it becoming too overwhelming. I enjoyed the narration and found it easy to listen to.

I love getting lost in her books...

I might need to reread a few of her other... I cant remember and I want to know for sure... is Mirta the Aunt of Beatriz ... no spoilers here but I'm sure that the Perez last name isnt a coincidence and I love the continuity

Another winnerI

I am in LOVE with Chanel Cleeton's books. The Last Train to Key West is another great read that draws you into the lives of three women in 1935 Key West with a hurricane coming. Her characters are all different but you care about them immediately. I was sad when it was finished.
