Publisher's Summary

The twisted, beloved Dollanganger legend began two generations before Corrine Foxworth locked away her children in Flowers in the Attic. The second book in a new prequel story arc, Out of the Attic explores the Dollanganger family saga by traveling back decades to when the clan’s wicked destiny first took root.

Married to the handsome, wealthy Garland Foxworth following a wildfire romance and an unexpected pregnancy, young Corrine Dixon finds her life very different from how she imagined it. Often alone in the mansion of Foxworth Hall, she can practically feel the ancestors’ judgment of her as insufficient - as not a Foxworth. Stern portraits glare at her from the walls, and the servants treat her strangely. Nothing in the vast place is truly hers.

Even her son, Malcolm Foxworth, born in the luxe Swan Room and instantly whisked away to a wet nurse, feels alien to her. With a husband alternately absent and possessively close, Corrine doesn’t yet realize that she’s barely scratched the surface of what lies beneath Foxworth Hall’s dark facade and the family that guards its legacies.

With the 40th anniversary celebration of Flowers in the Attic, and 10 new Lifetime movies in the past five years, there has never been a better time to experience the forbidden world of V.C. Andrews.

Awesome

I can’t wait for the 3rd and final book in this series. I can’t wait to hear how Malcolms earlier and later years are formed, after his mom left him with his dad.

I love Dara reading the series, thou I do find sometimes that her tone is very monotone, and I did zone out a few times.

Happy reading everyone!

Even expecting the worst...

One can't look to VC Andrews books for historical accuracy, obviously, but whoever is ghostwriting the series right now is phoning it in painfully. It's just so wrong in tone, fact, setting, continually using words and phrases that weren't even extant..... Like, at least try??? Please? We're already reading pure crap, no need to put a face on that, but even a limited working knowledge of society in the 1890s American south would not be a sin. So to speak.

disappointing

This is my least favorite book in the series. It is very boring and it lacks the usual VC Andrews dark and twisted plotline. It touches on the attic but never really explains the questions readers have been wondering about the attic. It talks extensively about the swan room but I still have more questions than answers about that, too.

Worth the listen

I really enjoyed this story, seems the Foxworth name goes even deeper back as if the same story has been on repeat with all the Foxworth men. Looking forward to the next installment coming in June 2020.

not worth the money

I didn't finish the book, it was impossible to like the main character. and since the book seems to be written as one long narrative, without any input from other characters, the story was boring and whiny.

Out of the Attic was an excellent story

The narrator was extremely fantastic! The story plot was excellent! It lacked a little bit of the mystery, the other stories had. Overall it was very thrilling and kept me wanting more.

never disappointed

These are my go to books , although the Garland Foxworth in this book is quite different from the Garland we meet in the previous book.
