One of the better V. C. Andrews novels. Love, Cajun-style, with a twist (of course!).

I love VC Andrews books.... however, I've found that since her passing her family hired another author to continue writing using her name, and suppposedly continue to finish some unfinished manuscripts. This is not working for me. I can tell the difference in the writing immediately. The way to tell the difference is while VC Andrews may write a series, i.e., the Landry Series, they are complete stories, and leave you satisfied with the story. However, the new author has taken to write extremely poorly written short story books (less than 150 pages) about one character, the second book, the third book, the fourth book, and the fifth book are all the aame; each of these books are about one certain character and stops as the character is about to start their life. FINALLY!!! after you read all five of these books, there is an ACTUAL REAL BOOK, defined by not only the length (around 300 pages), that bring all the characters from the previous FIVE short stories (which you pay full book price $6-$7) and THEN and only THEN do you actually get a book that may be worth reading to some, but not actual VC Andrew readers. In my humble opinion, the family of VC Andrews are not only being extremely greedy by using their family members' name but by using an author who has not the skill enough to actually write a complete manuscript. Before knowing what was transpiring, I began to buy the "shooting stars" series, and the "runaway" series, which both left me feeling not only dissatisfied, but JIPPED. So, I stopped reading the garbage short stories, and read the "final" book to the series just to give the author a "fair" chance, and found I couldn't get even halfway through the final book of the "runaway" series. Again, in my humble opinion, STICK WITH THE ORIGINAL VC ANDREWS BOOKS!! Do not waste your money, or time searching for these other books. Let VC Andrews rest, and let her keep her magnificant gift! This other "author" should be sued for using her name on this garbage, even though the family authorized this robbing of the gift of their family member.... namely her name.

All that Glitters is the third spellbinding novel in the new V.C. Andrews series that began with Ruby and continued with Pearl in the Mist...the story that brought to light the vile act of treachery that drove innocent young Ruby Landry away from the Dumas mansion in New Orleans. Back in her beloved Louisiana bayou. Ruby hopes against hope that the deep shadows of the Spanish Moss will blot out forever her family's tainted legacy, and let her begin anew...

Driven from the Dumas Mansion back to her beloved bayou, Ruby's only hope is that fate will let her begin anew...

Living again in a humble shack, Ruby is determined to make a secure and happy home for her precious infant daughter, Pearl. Paul Tate -- her first love, whom she was forced to abandon -- is at her side once more, now a man of dazzling wealth. When he whisks her into his grand house, it seems their future is assured. As mistress of Cypress Woods, Ruby can forget even the shocking reason she and Paul must wed in a secret ceremony and remain husband and wife in name alone.

But the thick, expensive walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the terrible memories that have woven their fabric over her destiny, or the cold eyes of Paul's mother, Gladys, reminding Ruby of the secret she must keep to give Pearl a loving father. Then her venomous twin sister, Gisselle, arrives to taunt her with news of Beau Andreas, the true father Pearl has never met, and the only man Ruby will ever long for with all her body and soul, Desperate to find the complete, fulfilling life she craves, Ruby builds a precarious new existence, a flimsy shanty of hope that the first flood washes away. Only when the storm exposes the very blackest evils of the past will she glimpse the rainbow's fragile promise, a morning of sunshine and laughter with a family of her own....
