Overview

Seeds of Yesterday (Dollanganger Series #4) by V. C. Andrews

Now a major Lifetime movie event—Book Four of the Dollanganger series that began with Flowers in the Attic—the novel of forbidden love that captured the world’s imagination and earned V.C. Andrews a fiercely devoted fanbase.

They escaped their mother’s hellish trap years ago, but a cruel history of lies and deceit has come full circle…

The forbidden love that blossomed when Cathy and Christopher were held captive in Foxworth Hall is one the Dollanganger family’s darkest secrets. Now, with three grown children and even a new last name, the pair seem to have outlived a twisted legacy. But on their son Bart’s twenty-fifth birthday, when the spiteful and disturbed young man claims his rightful inheritance, the full, shattering truth of their tainted past will be revealed at Foxworth Hall—the place where the nightmare began, and where Christopher and Cathy were once just innocent flowers in the attic…

I have spent the last 2 weeks reading this series non-stop. I love the series as a whole and yould highly recommend it. It is well-written and very orginal. The characters come to life and you learn to adore them. HOWEVER, this last book, the final chapter of Chris and Cathy's crazy life left me disappointed. Here's why: The book is back in Cathy's perspective, which is refreshing. She is in her 50s and moving back to the new Foxworth hall. A lot of events happen that are just as dramatic/sad as the last. The secrets surrounding the events keep you reading. Though, at times it seems Andrews is repeating herself, it wasn't so bad. BUT, in the last chapter you are expecting the tension to build up and the secrets to be revealed. But nothing is revealed!! It seems to just end without a real resolution to the certain issues. Who filled the columns with wet sand? Who destroyed Jory's ship? Who left Jory's window open so he got sick? It doesn't make sense!! I recommend reading it still, just don't expect much of the ending.

This is the last book in the series (technically book #5 is a prequel). This book was really good. It jumps ahead to when Cathy is 52-55. I don't want to reveal the end, but being with Cathy from 12 all the way through middle age makes you feel that you were really a part of her life. The part of the Uncle was not totally convincing, but the other characters were. The end was touching, and brought tears to my eyes. If you read Flowers in the Attic, you MUST read this book!

I would give it 3 1/2 stars. The pace of the plot flowed well enough, but I couldn't engage myself in the characters as well. Jory's experience, although sad and heartfelt at first, turned rather annoying after awhile. Bart's growth also did not do anything for me. I did not feel compassion or happiness at his change in character, maybe because it was predictable as well as abrupt. Cindy was an extra for me, her character not very important. I didn't like how Chris kind of disappeared from the book; his sporadic appearances were too short. I wanted more of Chris and Cathy. The best part of the book was the ending. I liked how everything went full circle, and it was the only time in the book when I truly felt touched and the part that will be remembered.

she braught the foxworth hall to life, as if i was living there.. i cried and had shivers running through my body after reading the final book, which began with flowers in the attic.. excellent!! i stood up many nights reading, could never close my book... i wish it went on because it was so good.. i have to say i was not at all disapointed with the ending...

this book is incredibly written and will keep you reading on until the very last page. it will make you laugh, it will make you cry...this book is a must read but dont read this book until youve read the flowers in the attic, petals in the wind, and if there be thorns.

After 'If there be thorns' I was hoping 'Seeds of Yesterday' would be alot better, but it wasn't. It was a little better, but it was just depressing and repetitive like the last book. And there needed to be more after the ending, it just didnt explain how things turned out, which made me feel like she just couldn't think of any more, or she was just sick of it herself. This story was probably the most unbelievable of the whole series, too.

Seeds of Yesterday, the 4th book in the series is probably my least favorite. Many times I felt like words were added just to fill the page. As boring as everyone in the house thought it was, is how I felt at times. Cathy, who wanted to not be like her mother, did exactly that. She smothered her adult children, never giving them the chance to settle their own conflicts. Even at the end, I felt like Chris was sick of her. "Please Cathy, don't make me not to want to come home!" He tells her at one point. He couldn't stand the constant drama that she spilled into his lap every Friday night, while the rest of them had to endure it all week, in his absence. I felt dissatisfied over the ending of the book. So many questions were left hanging in the air. What was Bart's "surprise"? What did Joel "really" want? Was he responsible for the two acts that had us all guessing as to who did it? I don't want to spoil any part by giving to much information, but if you read this already, you know which two incidents I am referring to. Like I said, I felt that the ending could have been better. It's like the writer got bored with it, and didn't care how things were left at the end. Again, I would warn about this book (along with the others of this series) is not meant for young minds. Unconsenual sexual acts, incest, violent acts and revenge seems to be the flow of this book. A hard read, but a good read. Not yhe page turner that the first two books were, but nonetheless, by itself, it holds it's own Kadi'

I have been reading the series for the past few weeks. And i am sad that it is over. Many times I have caught myself emotionally reacting to the novel. The ending is unexpected, but touching nonetheless. I don't think any other book has made me cry, aside from Harry Potter, that is. A must-read for those who have read any of the Dollanganger series.

Truth be told, if i were to pick this book up in the store, i probably wouldn't have read it. But my closest friend recommended it and i couldn't put them down! The story is thrilling and gut retching. The characters are so formed and the all have different unique personalities. The entire series is phenomenal and i would recommend it to anyone.

This is book #4 in the series and it made me not care to read #5, which is the prequel. You should really read that one first. I was really glad for it to be over. It got a little repetitive and just plain silly in some parts. Book 1 and 2, I would really reccommend though. By the end of book 2 you get enough of the story. Book 3 was better than book 4. Bart was just such an unbelieveable character. I just got tired of reading about his wierd ways and Cathy went on and on and on forever! Would have given it 3 and1/2 stars but that wasn't an option.

So much sadness but such a great story. I do get tired of the brother sister love but guess it makes a story all the same.

I would really like to know the ending. If some one could tell me. I know it would be a spoiler alert but i just dont have the time to read the whole book. It is sad to me because i want to know how it all ends but am being way over worked by having to do late nights at work. If anyone could tell me, thank you. It would be much appreciated.

This whole series is sad and kind a depressing, the ending especially. The writing for each book was good and kept you reading as you wanted to know what happens to the characters.

On its own, it was ok. As a series it was excellent. You need to read the other books to have a real understanding of the circumstances that made the characters who they are. The ending was very unexpected to me. This book left me feeling sad.
