On the heels of the successful Lifetime TV version of Flowers in the Attic comes the TV movie tie-in edition of Petals On the Wind, the second book in the captivating Dollanganger saga.
Forbidden love comes into full bloom. For three years they were kept hidden in the eaves of Foxworth Hall, their existence all but denied by a mother who schemed to inherit a fortune. For three years their fate was in the hands of their righteous, merciless grandmother. They had to stay strong...but in their hopeless world, Cathy and her brother Christopher discovered blossoming desires that tumbled into a powerful obsession. Now, with their frail sister Carrie, they have broken free and scraped enough together for three bus tickets and a chance at a new life. The horrors of the attic are behind them...but they will carry its legacy of dark secrets forever.
The story is faultless. This is the 6th time I have read the series. BUT the electronic form of this book particular is horrid. Too many spelling mistakes to count and what was with the dollar signs $$$ to replace words? Shocking.
This was a great story, following straight on from flowers.
It's so sad when you reflect on what they went through. Story well told.
Petals on the Wind
Good - I was still hooked but more because the "Flowers in the Attic" had set up this novel and it's characters so well. This was really not as well written as "Flowers"(which was written by a ghost writer). This book is very poorly edited.
