Cathy is narrating in this book now, this time in her 50's. After the tragic ending of part 3, "If There Be Thorns," Cathy and Chris now find themselves back again at Foxworth Hall Mansion, which Bart has inherited from his grandmother and plans having remodeled. All of the childern are now grown up in this book, and their personalities begin to develop a lot more. First, we have Cathy's eldest son Jory, who is engaged to be married with his wife Melanie, who have both become quite sucessful in the ballet world. Her second son Bart, who holds a cold shoulder for Chris, still angry and traumatized, is yet very lost and confused in finding out his idenity. Cathy's adopted daugther Cindy, also turns out to be a bigger character in this story. She is much like Catherine's younger self in the book "Petals In The Wind". We are now even introducted to a new character, Joel, who is Cathy's long lost uncle, pressumed to be dead, but back from the grave and very much alive. So, all living at foxworth hall: Joel, Chris, Cathy, Jory, Melanie, Bart, and Cindy. Personalites all clashing together, this story seems to revolve around everyones lives. With everything that has happened to them, there is yet another interesting, but emotional twist towards the end of the book. You will be sad to see this great series end.

A stunning continuation of Cathy and Christopher's story

Cathy's sons are grown up. Jory and his wife are famous dancers. Bart has inherited his grandmother's millions and the horrifying house that kept Cathy and Christopher hostage as children. As Cathy watches the house being redone, she also sees that Bart is still a troubled young man. He seduces Jory's wife and abuses his younger sister as he struggles with himself to find his own way. Christopher and Cathy have their own stuggles as they must come to terms with themselves and their past. A great conclusion to a stunning story.

A dark, emotional conclusion to a parallizing saga

This novel is truly one of the best ever written, it has the same quiet eeriness that the others possessed, the same deep heartwrenching character development, and the same beautiful prose. this novel dares to take the feelings and emotions of characters already filled with dark memories of suffering and betrayel and put them to the ultimate test. this time they are the elders, they are the ones with the control, and they have to save their family from a curse which has plagued their family for years. this novel demonstrates how innocence can be retained through so much suffering, how love conquers all and how in the end the calamities of life make you strong enough to bare the damnation of the future.this novel was the ultimate conclusion to an amazing series and when it was over i cried, i cried for cathy, chris, the twins, and for the little dresden dolls locked away. cathy`s letter was so heartfelt and perfect for an ending, and it does seem so fitting that she should end up where it all began. the way she put flowers on the walls, is so melancholy, so perfect, and the ending may be sad, but it couldn`t be better, and atleast the dollanganger saga is over and ``i`m up now where the purple grass grows!``

Pure Sadness!

It is still hard for me to concieve the idea of Chris and Cathy gone forever, though it's been a whole year since I've finished the book. Cathy was my absolute favorite character, except for in "Thorns" (because she's such a bimbo in that one!). It's hard to think that all that they endured as children was for nothing. Even though they died at different places, it was still at Foxworth Hall, like Cory in "Flowers". Even though I don't like any of the ghost writer's stories (except for the Cutler series), I would like it if the person would attempt to continue the trilogy. I mean, what happened to Bart, Jory, Melodie, the twins, Tony, etc, after Cathy died? Did Bart leave Foxworth Hall? Did the twins grow up happily? What was Jory's and Tony's new baby like? Was it a boy or a girl? So many questions, so little of answers. I am truly filled with sadness, like a family relative died recently that I had known all my life. My favorite book was "Flowers" and the whole series besides "My Sweet Audrina", another true V.C. Andrews classic (the only Casteel book I really liked was Heaven, but I only liked the beginning but as things continued it got old).Any ways, I hope that a new Dollanganger book will come out, this one with the answers that I sought and some people may be looking for too. So, it is with tears that I say good-bye to the Dollangangers now, and thank fully I still have the first three books that I can read and attempt to forget the fourth one, for now.


I think thýs book is too tragic when I was reading the end of the book ý couldn't stop my tears.At last Bart understands that Chris is the one who loves him too much as his child but I think he was too late because Chris was death when he understands that.After Chris's death Cathy do away with lefting to his childrens a letter.It worths to read.
