The Last Woman in the Forest is Diane Les Becquets at her best: unflinching and terrifying, yet buoyed by hope and love. This novel scared me, and it continues to scare me, but that didn’t stop me from racing through it. No one writing today has so connected the threats in our natural world to the threats in our emotional lives as well as Les Becquets has. This is a powerful novel, and a story I won’t forget.
