Love this whole series, can't believe there isn't a movie of this book, shows how all of the Foxworth problems began.
FINALLY I understand why Olivia Foxworth was so cold and bitter! I have not read a book in over 29 yrs now. And I made it through this in less than 2 days. I couldn't stop reading😁 I am a bit disappointed that it did not show the perspective of Olivia during the Dolanganger children's stay at Foxworth hall. I recall in the film "flowers in the attic" there was moments that she was torn between wanting the children gone to having pity for them.
