Fans of Flowers in the Attic will relish this first book in V.C. Andrews’ haunting Landry Series.
Moving from the shadowy Louisiana bayous to the sun-washed opulence of New Orleans, this series spins a mesmerizing tale of passion and secrecy. Lovely, red-haired Ruby Landry’s early years have been shrouded in mystery. She trusts only her loving grandmother and her simple bayou life. But her past, darker than she could ever imagine, is waiting to overshadow her as she grows into a beautiful, accomplished young artist and moves into a sophisticated world.
Best-selling author V. C. Andrews’ talent for creating breathtaking tales of obsession is fully evident in Ruby. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat adds just the right touches of emotion, capturing Ruby’s dreams, joys and horrors.

Girls innocence taken
How each place was described. I felt like I was there looking at it with her.
Too old for the book. You can actually hear her taking breaths and swallowing and even can hear her move her saliva around in her mouth. She shouldn't be narrating books.
I don't think I would. Ruby is perfect.
I love this series and have read the books over and over. I'm really not trying to be mean when describing the narrator, but it almost caused me to stop listening to this book that I love. I would like to see a better matched voice for the series. The voice was way to old for the teenage girl, Ruby.
Not at the top but in the middle somewhere
How she describes her home and the people, you get a good feel all the characters
Not really sure
Sure it was an easy listen
The ending was a bit weak for me. I would have had the twins swap places and have the wrong one being sent away. Then as the evil step mother figures it out she becomes paralyzed from her lashes down and can't tell anyone. Daddy has an affair with the mystery hooker. Some good characters came and went when a much more exciting store could have been build around them. Main character was good, too good. No one is that perfect and nothing happens that fast.
This book is about a 15 year old girl. The woman who tells the story sounds old enough to be my grandmother. It makes it impossible to enjoy when listening when it sounds like a wishful granny. Common sense is to pair the voice as best you can with the main character . Poorly done. I have read this book several times and now after listening too it verbally my sense of enjoyment for the story is gone.
She's too old to read books for teenager girls.
I opened this audiobook to listen to Ruby, by VC Andrews. I am very disappointed to say that the file I received was incorrect. It was titled Ruby, but was by someone else and the subject matter was not the same. I want a refund or the correct file on my account.
