V. C. Andrews gained national fame with Flowers in the Attic, the chilling tale of four young children locked away by their ruthless grandmother. Now, with over 38 million copies of her sensational thrillers in print, V. C. Andrews continues to be a household name even after her death.
After several terrifying years of captivity, the three surviving Dollanganger children have found a way to escape their prison, but they have been scarred forever. Petals on the Wind follows these children into adulthood. Although they find success and fame, they are led deeper into the curse that still haunts their family. As the three struggle to lead normal lives, revenge draws them back to the one who turned the key in the lock so long ago. While the tension grows to a fever pitch, Petals on the Wind moves toward a searing conclusion.

Well-spent? Hmm....I'm sure I'd be a better person if I had read something more "wholesome" ha ha.
I'd love to hear the rest of the series if they got the same narrator. And My Sweet Audrina, which is the craziest, most f***ed up of all her books.
Her narration is what made this audible book great. Cause the book itself is pretty bad. But somehow she made the melodrama and flowery purple prose deliciously entertaining.
I cannot believe my friends and I read all of these books in junior high. Our mothers obviously had no idea what they were about!
I enjoyed this book like I enjoy eating a whole bag of Doritos. It was good in the moment, but afterwards left me feeling ashamed and a little nauseated.
Audible format takes these books and makes them more enjoyable. Books don't have tones or attitudes in them like a book being read. You feel a real connect to the situation they are living. You get a better understanding of how and why they do the things they do. You can feel how their relationships really are.
Anything that V.C. Andrews wrote her self.
I have not. Although she does a great job.
This book made me cry several times. It tears your heart out. You feel their pain.
Again I would love it, if they continued to convert her older books to Audible format.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
revenge, greed, sadness...
Cathy of course....its her story....but all the characters are noteworthy...
I like them all...and sometimes hate them all too...
This is a strange question... Considering the book, it is hard to choose....
I wish Audible had the rest of this series...I think many people should hear this story, and count there blessings everyday...
This book follows flowers in the attic and it is without a doubt the best of the 3 I listen to. All through these books I noticed that incest was made to look " normal" IT IS NOT! as traumatized as these characters were they should have NEVER allow this to happen. NO EXCUSES!!
I didn't want it to end. I wish Audible had the third book. "If There Be Thorns. "
Read book one first and book two will be more engaging. Love the narrator too.
Kathy of course but they are all well established.
Yes in Flowers in the attic.
The final revenge was worth waiting for.
A good read but some trite/storylines. I saw the movie Flowers in the Attic and it inspired me to read the book. Aye Hollywood
I really enjoyed listening to this book. i didnt care for the made for tv movie, it didn't do the. book justice. Whom ever producefd it did a horrible job. But the book was excellent.
Though it dragged on at the end, I still enjoyed the story and would def listen to it again. I loved how the story folled the kids and we got to see how things turned out for them dispite the 3+ years they were locked up.
Dr Paul. He seemed very charming. I loved the way he took the kids in and provided for them as if they were his own.
Yes. She was jsut as good in this one as she was the others
Hello, Dear Mother
Yes, Catherine's revenge seemed to drag on forever!! At time I wash she would just get to it already! Sheesh. Everytime you think "here we go", she chickens out and we have to wait another 10 chapters for the next chance. Plus whining Carrie really got on my nerves. I was glad when she finally grew up
It carried on the same way as The Flowers in the Attic. Floating from one book to the next easily.
That it tied up all the threads that may have been hanging since the first. And so well written ending.
I have.I this specific series, The Flowers in the Attic ( the book before this one) her narration is priceless. I could not imagine enjoying it more and it was because of her
It did all of those things. Broke my heart, made me elated, made me feel so satisfied that sometimes things do come full circle.
Please do listen to this series. I am the paperback fan, reading it more than once and I am so happy I chose to listen t it. I am on to the third, with different narrators and hoping they do V.C Andrews just as much justice as Ms. Bresnahan has.
I read the book several years ago, but I love the fact that I can experience it again and refresh my memory through Audible. Whoever thought of "Audible" is a genius in my book.
That it's dark and sinister.
This is the first time that I have listened to this Author. Good Job!!
No. Everyday that I drive home in traffic (42 miles one way), listening to the book makes the drive in traffic not seem so long.
