Overview

Pearl in the Mist (Landry Series #2) by V. C. Andrews

Fate whisked Ruby from a simple life in the Louisiana Bayou. But her new riches bring more treachery than happiness...
Even after a year as a Dumas, Ruby still wonders at the splendor of the family's New Orleans mansion, and rejoices in the love of the father she had never known. But true happiness in her new home is as elusive as d swamp mist. Ruby must carefully avoid a venomous enemy: her stepmother, Daphne, who cringes and sneers at her backwater upbringing. And Ruby's every effort to befriend her twin sister, Gisselle — especially since Gisselle's crippling accident — is answered with bitterness and vicious backstabbing.
So idyllic Greenwood — the exclusive girls' boarding school that her father has chosen for his daughters' senior year — seems to promise some peace from the conniving Daphne, and maybe even a fresh start with Gisselle. But Ruby's kind isn't welcome at Greenwood, and the legendarily strict headmistress, Mrs. Ironwood, plots with her stepmother to make her life miserable. Meanwhile, Gisselle is on a mission to break every school rule, leaving Ruby to suffer the humiliating punishments. But Ruby doesn't lose hope — until a terrible tragedy leaves her alone in a world that never really wanted her. Ruby will have to summon every last ounce of her Cajun strength to reclaim her home, her future, and the happiness she once knew....

Ruby was a lot wiser in this book than in the first. She drove me nuts in the first book with her extreme innocence (which falls more along the lines of utter stupidity) & overly trusting tendencies. But she was still just too easy to manipulate & horrible at standing up for herself. Plus, her accidental pregnancy could have been prevented if she had just had the sense to use a freakin' condom. Her life was difficult enough as it was, yet she obviously didn't think twice about adding an accidental pregnancy to her already-complicated life. Oh, Ruby...

I'm just a big V.C. Andrews fan. I love all her books so I don't think I'll have anything negative to say.

Compared to the other books, this one was VERY dumb. Seriously! I have seen better plots in a graveyard. It's like, one paragraph, 'I'm pregnant!' the next she's having the freakin child. Very disappointing.

I have read most of the V.C. Andrews books, and I can honestly say that they have been the best books that I have ever read. She describes her stories so well, that you can actually picture everything in your head as it happens. I have been reading her books since I was in Junior High School, and I still read them at 21 years old. I highly recommend all of her books. Enjoy!!!

This is the second book in the Landry series. I find myself picturing everything that Ruby goes through as if I am in her shoes. Everything that happens to her makes me feel sorry for the her. Her devilish twin Giselle is so horrible but keeps the book interesting. It was hard for me to put this book down. I read it in 2 days!

I lover this book. It was awesome. I love Ruby because she is so brave and strong. She went through so much to accomplish her goals. She lets no one stand in the way of her dreams. Ruby deserves some happiness and now maybe she will have some.

Pearl in the Mist is a sensational book that really keeps you coming back for more. I couldn't put the book down! After you read this book you have to read the third book! I would have rated it a five if it weren't so similar to some of the other books that V.C. Andrews has written.

This was one of the best books I have ever read. When I picked it up I just could not put it down. It is a tear jurker. If you don't believe me read it for yourself.

This book was a great book to add to the Landry series. This book is so cool and dipictable. I can almost see what I'm reading. My mom gave me the Landry series to read and I love thesem books. I think I found the perfect books.
