The Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton: Conversation Starters
The Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton is a gripping historical fiction riddled with mystery, crime, and romance. The book is set in 1935 Key West, a Florida paradise during the Great Depression and site of Henry Flagler’s legendary Overseas Railroad. It follows the story of three women from different walks of life who find themselves in Key West on Labor Day Weekend. This puts them days before the Atlantic’s strongest hurricane in history throws the paradise into disarray.
Local waitress Helen Berner is nine months pregnant and is looking for a way out of her abusive marriage. Mirta Perez, recently wed to a notorious American businessman, arrives in Key West for her honeymoon. She eventually draws closer not only to her husband but also to the danger surrounding him. Elizabeth Preston, a New York elite whose family suffered in the Wall Street Crash, travels to Key West on a mission. She needs to find her war veteran brother and escape her impending marriage. These three women's fates eventually intertwine and are forever changed by the hurricane that threatens their lives.
The Last Train to Key West is among Bustle’s Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2020. It garnered praises from Woman’s World and Publisher’s Weekly and bestselling authors Kate Quinn and Natasha Lester, among others.
