The beginning of the Landry series, this book is one of the best by the author that I've read. As twisted as most books written by Andrews, this one also hits close to the heart at times-a good read, with a bit of mature content.

I remember reading this book in one day when I was in High School, and I still remember it vividly. It is my favorite of ALL V.C. Andrews books, and will keep you captivated until the end! I especially love the Bayou setting, and the way it's described it makes you feel like you're there!

In the heart of the Bayou, Ruby Landry lives with her guardian, Granddmere Catherine who is a Cajun spiritual healer and her drunken outcast Grandpere Jack. Soon Ruby's attraction to Paul Tate blossoms into love but the wealthy Tate family forbid Paul to associate with a poor Landry. Grandmere urges Ruby to follow her dream of being a painter not realizing how close Ruby was to an uncertain future.
After seeing a faded picture of her mysterious father, Ruby learns of a shameful deception and a shocking scheme of blackmail. After Grandmere dies, Ruby is left to seek her father, in his vast New Orleans mansion, on her own. In a house of lies, madness and cruel torment, Ruby clings to her memories of Paul to keep her heart alive.

First book in the Landry series.

In the heart of the bayou, Ruby Landry lives a simple, happy life. But innocence can't last forever...
The only family Ruby Landry has ever known are her loving guardian, Grandmère Catherine, a Cajun spiritual healer, and her drunken, outcast Grandpèrb Jack. Although thinking about her dead mother and mysterious father sometimes makes her feel as mournful as the wind sighing through the Spanish moss, Ruby is grateful for all she has. Her life is filled with hope and promise...especially when her attraction for handsome Paul Tate blossoms into a mysterious, wonderful love. But Paul's wealthy parents forbid him to associate with a poor Landry, and Grandmère urges her to follow her dream of becoming a great painter, foreseeing a time when Ruby will be surrounded with riches in the dazzling city of New Orleans! Yet she cannot know how close that uncertain future looms....

Stunned by these revelations, she is devastated when Grandmère dies, leaving her to seek out her father in his vast New Orleans mansion. There, in a house of lies, madness, and cruel torment, Ruby clings to her memories of Paul to keep her heart alive. For only their love can save her now....

Very enjoyable book. Does Bk. 1 mean that there are follow-ups to this part? I'd love to find out how Ruby's life turned out in later years.
