A classic tale that picks up where 'Flowers in the Attic' left off. Stimulating. A great read even if you've read it before, as I have.
Excellent book with lots of twists.
This book was disappointing in some aspects. I enjoyed Flowers in the Attic for its gleefully tawdry nature. Petals on the Wind is of course more of the same, but I found the characters to be less sympathetic. I found myself impatient with the various creative ways they found to ruin their own lives. The female characters in particular are so weak willed and happy to tolerate abuse that I felt far more disgust than empathy.
This is book 2 of a four book boxed set. If necessary, I will break the set, but would prefer to have all 4 go at once.
For Carrie, Chris, and Cathy, the attic was a dark horrow that would not leave their minds, and of course Mother had to pretend it didn't exist.
For Carrie, Chris and Cathy the Attic was a dark horror that would not leave their minds....Of course mother had to pretend they didn't exist. And grandmother was convinced they had the devil in them. But that wasn't their fault. Was it? Cathy knew what to do. She knew it was time to show her mother and grandmother that the pain and terror of the attic could not be forgotten...Show them. Show Them..... Once and for all..........
