Overview

Ruby (Landry Series #1) by V. C. Andrews

An innocent bayou girl lost to New Orleans. One of the most popular storytellers of all time, V.C. Andrews (Flowers in the Attic, My Sweet Audrina) layers psychological suspense with sheer terror in this provocative first book of the classic Landry Family series.

Even in the heart of the bayou, innocence can’t last forever....

The only family Ruby Landry has ever known are her loving guardian Grandmere Catherine, a Cajun spiritual healer, and her drunken Grandpere Jack. Although thinking about her dead mother and mysterious father sometimes makes her feel as sad and solemn as the wind sighing through the Spanish moss, Ruby is grateful for what she has. Her life is filled with hope and promise, especially when her attraction to handsome Paul Tate blossoms into a wonderful love affair. But Paul’s wealthy parents forbid him to associate with a poor Landry, and Grandmere urges Ruby to focus on her dream of becoming a great painter.

An uncertain future looms....

A shocking scheme of blackmail and deception comes to light when Ruby sees her father for the first time in a faded photograph. Stunned and devastated when Grandmere dies soon after, she is left to seek out an explanation on her own. Finding her father in his massive New Orleans mansion, Ruby is quickly subjected to his world of lies, torment...and madness. Still, she clings to her memories of Paul—for only true love might be able to save her now.

This is one of my favorite V.C. Andrews series. I read all 5 books in the series in about 3 days. Great books! I couldn't put them down once I started.

I couldn't help but laugh a couple times. Does Neiderman really think that Cajuns live off of only gumbo & jambalaya? That's all Ruby ate in the bayou! Oh, I'm sorry, a biscuit here and there.

I like the book and most of vc andrews books but it pisses me off that majority of her characters are stupid. Im glad ruby stood up for herself at the end. Bout time. As far as the twin goes she was foolish to be nice to her. And why are they so gullible when it comes to males? I need the characters to b a lil more wiser..

I have been a VC Andrews fan for along time and this is a great book. The story flows well and the plot moves at a nice speed with some unexpected twists, which make this book a page turner.

I really did enjoy this book. I have read a lot of books lately, but this book hands down is a well written book. I enjoyed everything about this book. I also enjoyed the characters,and the plot. Ruby lives in the bayou of south Louisiana, she lives in poverty with her grandparents, Grandmere Catherine and Grandpere Jack, never knowing who her parents were (her mother's dead, and her father is unknown at the moment). However, Ruby is still a captivating series, filled with Cajun-style superstitions and horrible family secrets.
