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.

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.
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...
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.
It was very entertaining and the narration was great.
Cathy because she is the main character and it is her story.
I enjoyed the narration.
I would always be late to things because I didn't want to stop listening because it was very intense.
I wish Audible had the 3rd and 4th books. I don't have much time to read so I listen in my car and it would be nice to be able to continue the series.
Anyone able to deal with incestuous and "lolita-like" relationships.
Yes. Book description does not adequately address content. Thought I was purchasing a mystery thriller.
Yes. I do enjoy Ms Bresnehan's narrations. She is adept at projecting varied tone qualities for individual characters.
Way too many. It would end up a short story.
Mysteries and thrillers are my preferred listening genre. I try to avoid thin writing infused with gratuitous sex and/or extraneous filler. I blew it on this selection.
Shorter...could have told the story just as effectively in many fewer chapters. I just could not enjoy it knowing about it ending in the incestuous relationship it did. I loved flowers in the attic, but this was a real disappointment.
The narrator did a good job considering the material.
This is the continuation of Flowers in the Attic. It is very well read and allows you to really connect with the story. I just wish all the books in this series were available. If you like the old style VC Andrews, this is a book for you.
It was narrated in the familiar voice of the original Kathy. It was very believable and touching.
She was very engaging
It made me cry in empathy mostly for Carrie who lost so much.
I would recommend it to everyone who watched or read The Flowers In The Attic.
yes - it is just a very good story that is finishes the previous book Flowers in the Attic.
cathy since it is here story
cathy - I love the way she was always thinking on what to do next - she was a planner and not forgiving.
A must listen to but you need to listen to Flowers in the Attic first.
When I first read this book (like most people) I was in the 8th grarde and it was a very powerful influence in my life. I learned how to use my sexuality to my advantage. So when I saw the book on audio I thought I would give it a try. The narrator did a fine job, but what I found that what I thought was so good in the 8th grade, just seemed a little silly now that I am an adult woman. It still affected me the same way as far as the storyline but what I now couldn't now comprehend is how Corrine could do what she did, but once again it is a story of fiction. I didn't like they way Chris and Cathy could now live as husband and wife in the end and I don't like the way Chris and Cathy couldnt get past this part of their lives. I did like the fact that Cathy did get vengence against her mother. I did like the fact that I could now google V.C. Andrews and find out how she got the idea for her series. Unfortunatly they didn't finish the series on audio!!!! So here I go to the thrift stores to find If There Be Thorns book.
I hope that they will get the rest of the series on audio.
