Review: Petals on the Wind

Petals on the WindBook Review
4 of 5 stars to Petals on the Wind, the 2nd novel in the “Dollanganger” series written in 1980 by V.C. Andrews. It all started with the attic in the first book, but it set a series of event that would have disastrous impacts for years to come. When you finished the first book, you thought there couldn’t be anything more shocking in this family than two cousins falling in love and having children. You also thought there couldn’t be a meaner mother or grandmother. But then… book two takes it all that much further. Now, two of the children, brother and sister, fall in love and have an intimate relationship. But it doesn’t stop there… this family is full of insanity. There are so many crazy story lines between each of these people, you never quite know where it will go. VC Andrews excels at creating family drama. And I fell for it. Though Flowers in the Attic, the first in the series, is first in my heart… this was a fairly close second and follow-up book in the series. You’ll still be hooked… and wonder how the kids will get revenge. Keep with the series at this point. It’s definitely worth seeing the impact they attic had on the Dollanganger kids.

    Oh Wow! Does this take me back!I was a sophomore in high school when Flowers In the Attic first came out and my friends and I were enthralled with the continuing saga of the Dollangangers. I think I stuck with it until Andrews passed away and ghost writers started taking over the series and other books.

    This book sounds intriguing, and VERY dark. Might just give it a try. Thanks for the review.

      If you do, you should read the first book, Flowers in the Attic. It’s a series where you need to read that first to truly understand all that’s going on. And if you want dark, then you’ll definitely get it in the first one too.
