Winds of change rock the Dollanganger kids

Sequels are a tough nut to crack. Especially when the original source material is as revered as Flowers In The Attic. And yet, with Petals On The Wind, V.C. Andrews achieved the near-impossible. Despite the sequel being completely different from the work which came before, it retains the same spirit and tone. Chris, Cathy and Carrie have finally escaped the horrors of the attic... and yet life will not be simple for them, as the attic has left a harsh impression upon them. Chris finds it impossible to move beyond the unholy love born in the attic. Cathy burns with a desire for revenge against those who took so much from her. And Carrie... well, let's just say the fates aren't kind to poor Carrie. As with most of the early works by VC Andrews, the tone is most definitely gothic. The descriptions are lush and lavish, and lust often permiates the air... especially whenever nubile young Cathy, our narrator, begins speaking of her sensual exploits. To say that Cathy has a well-defined sense of self and sensuality would be an understatement, to be certain! Perhaps the best reason to read Petals On The Wind is to finally know the answer to the age-old question any good book (aka Flowers In The Attic) leaves the reader asking: What happened next?


The second book in the thrilling Flowers in the Attic saga. After years of torture and suffering in the Attic of Foxworth Hall Cathy, Chris, and Carrie are finally free (!), but the twisted story doesn't end there. After a long trip they are forced to go to a doctor when Carrie becomes violently ill. This is where they meet Dr. Paul Sheffeild who soon takes them into his home when he hears their unfortunate story. Cathy continues to persue her dream of becoming a prima ballerina and winds in and out of various relationships. After her dancing partner and lover, Julian, dies she goes to Barthomelow Winslow to have him get money from Julian's life insurance. After a few run-ons she decides to move next to him and make him fall in love with her as she gets revenge on her mother. (finally) One word for this book : WOW! It was very exiting. I couldn't put it down. If you want to see what happens to the Dollanger family and want to see Cathy give some serious payback to their selfish mother read this book! If you like horror, romance, and a dash of suspence rolled up in one, go for V.C. Andrews. But be sure to read Flowers in the Attic before this one or you may be left in the dark. Then you may move on to the next book,If There be Thorns, which only gets crazier!


he leido toda la serie y aunque no es el mejor de todos se podria decir que es bastante bueno, es muy diferente a la historia de flores en el atico, este es casi todo lo contrario en el primero todo era muy inocente y en este todo se torna erotismo y traicion, en donde todo les ocurre algo increible e interesante cosas que jamas pense que les iba a ocurrir es una historia inpredesible, nunca se sabe si la va a pasar esto o aquello pero en realidad es muy buena pero le doy 4 estrellas porque no es el mejor libro que e ledo y no lo puedo comparar con otros mucho mejores

The Christmas Climax at Foxworth Hall

I never dreamed V.C. Andrews could write another book as wonderfully eerie as Audrina's disfunctional family, but Cathy in Petals on the Wind is so real! Although she feels a need for such revenge, I loved the Christmas Climax at Foxworth Hall when her mother is confronted and even Bart Winslow sides with Cathy! I feel that Bart was the dark, handsome man Cathy always dreamed of...I didn't like her marriage to Julian at all...and thought it inappropriate for her to marry her guardian, Paul. In the end, I'm glad it seems that she and Chris and her two sons, Jory and Bart will lead a normal life of happiness. I felt Cathy's revenge on the invalid grandmother was a bit gruesome and harsh, but the book is the most exciting one I've ever read... full of unexpected outcomes!
