Diane Chamberlain’s latest novel is “The Last House on the Street.” Growing up in Round Hill, North Carolina, Ellie Hockley was raised to be a proper southern lady. When she became a volunteer to help register black voters, her parents were scandalized. Then she loses her heart to a fellow volunteer and discovers the frightening true nature of people living in Round Hill. 45 years later Kayla Carter is warned by Ellie not to move into her new house in the Shadow Ridge development because there is a dark history of the land where the house was built.
