Lillian's world is full of grand parties, of sunshine and promises, as thrilling as the fairy tales Mama spins for her and her little sister, Eugenia. No one, not even her cold, stern Papa and her Bible-spouting sister Emily, can crush her spirits - until the day Emily reveals the shattering seret of Lillian's birth, a secret Mama sadly cannot deny. Still Lillian refuses to believe Emily's hateful claim that she is evil, a curse...even when sweet, gentle Eugenia loses her fragile hold on life, and Mama retreats further into her fantasies. But when tragedy befalls her best friend, the one boy whose tender heart mirrors her own, Lillian comes to believe Emily's grim words. Meekly, she endures her penance, finding a strange solace in the endless repetition of prayers in a room stripped of all comforts. Lillian's heart is torn anew when, in a drunken haze, Papa subjects her to the most brutal degredation. Then Papa loses the Meadows in a card game, and Lillian is faced with a new and terrifying prospect. Arrogant, handsome playboy Bill Cutler will return the plantation - if Lillian will marry him. Now Lillian must leave her girlhood home behind, and make a bold new beginning as the mistress of a hotel called Cutler's Cove.

Good one. VC Andrews lovers will like this one. It's the prequel to Dawn in the Cutler series.

Second best book in the Cutler family series. A must read if you like Andrews' books.

I liked this book. However, I was disappointed with the ending. Lillian had arranged Dawn's kidnapping in the "Dawn" book, yet "Darkest Hour" didn't lead up to it. I read the other series from V.C. Andrews and it lead up to certain events. With this, Dawn wasn't mentioned. Good book overall.
