Very Dark

Out of all the books in the Dollanganger series, this is the darkest one. This story is about Cathy's boys Jory (the good son) and Bart (the bad son). Cathy and Christopher trys to get away from their past but someone is always behind them. Her son Bart becomes the embodiment of her grandfather Malcolm Foxworth.

Third book in the Dollanganger Series.

If There be Thorns picks up a few years after the horrific events of Petals on the Wind. Chris and Cathy are now "married" and have relocated to Marin County, California. They're now known as the Sheffields. Chris has a nice medical practice and Cathy teaches ballet. There children Bart (Cathy's second child with her mother's husband) and Jory (Cathy's first child with her first husband, Julien Marquet). Over the years, Cathy and Chris have concoted a web of lies to cover their tracks and to keep the children from learning about their parents true identities. But a new couple has moved into the old house next door and they'll bring reality crashing down on the two kids like a house of cards. How long can Chris and Cathy hide the truth from the children. Who are the new neighbors. What about Bart, a slightly troubled boy who'll grow up to be a handful. Can the family weather this new found trouble that they have inadvertantly created? To find out (and a whole lot more) check out If There be Thorns. Highly recommended.

She's back!

They use the last name of Sheffield. They also adopt a girl named Cindy. All is well, untill the day that an old lady and her butler move into the house next door. She invites Bart over for cookies and milk and tells him to call her "Grandmother". Who is this lady and what does she have in store for Bart?

Lo mejor en series

Para mi, leer los libros de V.C.Andrews ha sido lo mejor que me ha pasado, la verdad, es que es una gran escritora, te envuelve en sus letras, te sientes que formas parte de la historia que estas leyendo. Esta serie, empezando por flores en el atico, contando el resto de los libros, es la mejor serie que alguien pueda leer, realmente la excelente ver como a traves de una lineas te puedes llegar a sentir dentro de la historia, sientes que eres un personaje mas, eres un espectador, no solo lees, sino que sientes lo que sucede! La recomiendo a todo tipo de publico porque es una historia impactante!


First was Garden Of Shadows. Then there was Flowers In The Attic. Next comes Petals In The Wind. Now there is the wonderful book If There Be Thorns. This book is one of the many that I've enjoyed reading. This book tells about the facts and sharp edges of life, and for the Dallanganger Family it's extremely mysteriously terrifying. This book is the perfect example of what they have to go through. As for me I'm gonna be reading Seeds Of Yesterday, but I would still recommend the book If There Be Thorns to all of you.
