Publisher's Summary

Forbidden passions have been the hallmark of the Dollanganger clan since Flowers in the Attic debuted more than 40 years ago. In this third book of a new related trilogy, witness the birth of the Dollanganger curse as Corrine Foxworth’s children learn that family is but destiny by another, crueler name.

As a young girl in France, Marlena Hunter’s life was a fairy tale. She had a talented artist for a father, a doting mother, and a brother she couldn’t be closer to. She loved her family; she just didn’t know what her family actually was. When a car crash kills their parents, Marlena and Yvon lose not only France, but also their identity. Sent to Richmond, Virginia, they arrive at the home of two aunts they’ve never met before who tell them that their true last name is Dawson, that their father had fled the family years back - and that now the family is calling in the debt. Trapped in a mansion with as many secrets as rooms, Marlena yearns for escape. But in America, you can either make friends or make profit, and Yvon suddenly seems much more interested in the latter. While he is free to leave the house, Marlena is left to avoid lecherous tutors and the secretary-to-wife track expected of a woman. Caught between mastering the game to escape it and falling prey to its allure, she needs to learn fast - for Malcolm Foxworth has cast his eye in her direction. And no family name can protect her from the twisted roots of the Dollanganger family tree.

Disappointed...

after reading the dollanganger series this was just a repetitive notion. I didn't like it as much as the other books. The diaries of Christopher... Stayed a down fall of this series... Sometimes the books were confusing and I didn't know who the characters were! I miss you VC Andrews

meh

I have read all of the other books in the series and I wasn't expecting a masterpiece. However, I did think that it would show some more insight into how Malcolm became the brute that he was in Garden of Shadows. I truly felt like I was reading 3 or 4 other storylines from VC Andrews books mashed together, but poorly. We have the ever present incest, ableism, and beautiful women who are hated by all of the ugly people around them. This switches out the names, but that's about it. I feel like I wasted my money.

Doesn't ring true to V.C. Andrews Style

It was a nice book, it just didn't have the depth of the original VC Andrews books, the meat and potatoes so to speak.
