Beautiful, intruiging, dramatic and full of betrayal...

In the beautiful lands of greenglenna, virginia, there lived a stunning young woman who goes by the name of Catherine "Dahl" Dollanganger- Foxworth. Once the daughter of a young gorgeous couple (Corrine and Christopher Foxworth), and the loving older sister of two twins -Cory and Carrie and the younger sister of Chris Jr., her life was made to be perfect...that is, until her perfect father dies in a crash and she and her siblings have to live in an attic with their rich, evil grandmother. Just escaping the wretched house of a woman who hates them, the children (excluding the one killed at the grandmothers house, cory) find themselves at a doctors house. Cathy soon falls in love with the doctor and a few other guys including her mothers new husband. As cathy journies through a painstaking path to love and self peace, she stops along the way for a treat. She bows to get revenge on the woman who hurt her the most. Her dear old mommy. Taking everything she has one by one, cathy shows her mom what real betrayal and revenge is-- and she wont stop until she gets her fill. Oh yes. Revenge is sweet...but the aftertaste...is bitter....

Intriguing tale and part 2 of the Dollanganger series. The nook version is troublesome, though. There are so many spelling and typing errors that it is literally distracting. Several passages were butchered so bad that it's impossible to decipher what was intended...call me crazy, but I like to be able to read what I paid for, and the numerous errors prevented that. To give you but one example, the title of the book as it shows on the nook is "Petals Won the Wind." They couldn't even get the title right!

    GOOD BOOK

    This is a good book, not as good as Flowers in the Attic, but still good. The way Kathy takes revenge in this novel has been well written. Good follow up on Flowers in the Attic. This is a good book for anyone interested in a suspencful novel. Try it. You may love it!

    Cathy's wicked Reveng!

    This is a good follow up on what happen with her and her sibilings after they left that awful mansion. I gave it a 4 stars because Cathy keeps following in love and making mistakes with her love life. It got tiresome as well. I really wish there wasn't so much about her love life. Over all I though it was a good book. It also shows the past does in fact infect the future in reality and in fiction. Her revenge was soo awesome. It was kind of funny what she did to that Witch grandmother of hers.

    Petals on the Wind (Dollanganger Series #2)

    This is a great continuation to the first book but was a bit annoying at how Cathy keeps getting raped by the men in her life and in the end she FALLS in love with them or puts up with their abuse like she did with julian. But anyway was still an interesting book!

    good plot

    This book had a good plot and lots of twists and turns. It's a real page turner, but how did cathy get involved with so many crazy men. Both Julian and Bart were irrational and abusive, why did she even have love for either of them. I know I wouldn't.

    Petals on the Wind (Dollanganger Series #2)

    I'm finally into this book after first hearing about it 10 years ago from some of my friends.It's really a page turner! But if a had to read about those kids being 'perfect in every way' because they were blonde and blued eyed ONE MORE TIME I was going to hurl it acrossed the room! (but I still would have picked it back up that's how good the book was.)Though I have to say in the next book it's such a nice touch to have the kids in the first chapter being helped by (in the authors words) 'a very fat black lady'. Like she's a big 'ol black mammy. In this woman's books, there seems to be this arian theme of blonde blue eyed white superiority. It's pathetic ... I'd still recommend the book though.

    V.C. Andrews Out Does Herself Once Again!!!!

    This book I read in order, right after 'Flowers in the Attic'. And I must say that I am yet again amazed by V.C. Andrews ability to capture my attention in another can't-put-down edition. I recommend this to anyone who likes books with horror and attention-grabber outcomes.
