Twisted Roots (De Beers Series #3) by V. C. Andrews

THE PERFECT FAMILY...AND THE
PERFECT NIGHTMARE

From the outside, Hannah Eaton seems to live a charmed life in wealthy Palm Beach, Florida, with her Mother, Willow, a renowned psychologist, and her stepfather. But deep inside, she is miserable and lonely. She's been abandoned by her father, a pretentious lawyer whose family wants nothing to do with her. Now, the arrival of a new baby brother has consumed her mother, who is obsessed with caring for the sickly infant. And so, Hannah slips farther into the shadows...

With help of her boyfriend and her uncle, Hannah sets out for New Orleans to follow her dream of singing. But life on the road holds many dark surprises -- and shattering realities that Hannah herself may not be ready to face...

I've been reading VC Andrews since the 8th grade (20 years now). For those who didn't know, the original VC Andrews is no longer living. Its nice to see that the 'ghost' writer choosen to continue her work has finally stepped up! The book was wonderful. I read the whole thing in one day!

In this book, the story is told now through Willow's daughter Hannah's point of view. It seems that Hannah believes that she is not wanted by her own family thus meeting another who feels the same way she does. So after having enough Hannah and her new friend Heyden decide to leave Palm Beach by taking along her uncle and thus heads towards a new start but then their vehicle breaks down and thus comes an unexpected decision for Hannah to make.

I was a bit disappointed in this book.  Most of my disappointment stemmed from Willow's staggering change & the rest of the disappointment was because I expected more from Heyden, Hannah & Linden running away.  They basically just stayed at a house in South Carolina most of that time & the Bessie & Rosemary plot there wasn't very interesting.  I was expecting a little more action, adventure & suspense so I was disappointed that not much happened & that after all that, Hannah only changed her mind & decided to go back home after three or four days.  Like, really? Hannah wasn't exactly a great character either, but she IS more realistic compared to all the other perfect, doting VC Andrew daughters.  I have a hard time finding them realistic sometimes, but Hannah really was your typical teenager so that was a bit refreshing even if she got a little annoying from time to time. I really did like Miguel here though.  I've always liked him but my respect for him really grew in this novel.   He was basically the voice of reason between Willow & Hannah, the only strong one, the one that kept everything together.  It's funny to be saying that about Miguel when the psychiatrist was Willow, but that's  the way it was unfortunately.  Another thing I didn't understand about this book is why Willow decided to stay on & raise her daughter in a city that she looked down upon & didn't even like or had any respect for.  She could have become a psychiatrist anywhere else.  I don't know why she decided to stay in Palm Beach if she hated it there so much & disliked the spoiled rich people living there.

The pics when you open the books, with this one, just what's going on there? Yeah these books are creepy. Poor Hannah. Yeah these weird. Near the end especially. Talk about weird families. But the one from flowers in the attic is even weirder. Just..wow.

This book is great. I have been reading V.C. Andrews book ever since i have discovered it in my mom's room. This book is great. I liked it because i can tell what Hannah is growing through with her mother having to lose a child and then treating Hannah differently. Well i can understand what she did. But i haven't finshed the book yet but i'm almost there.

i enjoyed this book very much, however i am confused as to the dates in this book. if this is the book on how willow's parents had met then why is v.c. andrew's referring to the internet in some area's of this book. as far as i know they didn't have the internet when her parent's would have been alive. i think the editors need to pay closer attention to dates and also typos!!!! overall a very good read though.

I loved this book. I have read all the V.C. Andrews series. I can't wait for the next one. I can't get into any other stories like these ones. They are great!

I could not put this book down! It would have usually taken me a month or so to read a 400pg book but this took me a week! Kept me up a lot of nights jsut wantngi to see what happened next. It was also very good cuz u can relate to it. Well, at least I could. I am a fan of VC Andrews books and I just loved this 1. I would strongly recommend it!

I didn't like this one as much as the one's that came before it simply because Willow had changed so much, but I guess that was from the trama inflicted by the divorce and her brother. It was a good book, and I am looking forward to reading the next two. I thought the addition of the farm family made the story interesting

I was fairly disappointed in the overall storyline. Pages are missing, books series are getting shorter, typical and predictable storyline (pretty girl - intelligent yet naive, etc), etc. Whatever happen to the 5 book series such as the Casteel series? I would PROBABLY not buy anymore VC Andrews' book.

O.K....I have been an avid reader of V.C. Andrews books for 12 years. I have read every V.C. Andrews book and own them all.But, this one (I agree with other reviewers) was disappointing. I was really angry with Willow. I don't see how her character would have evolved into such an unbalanced and selfish mother...and for that matter how she could raise such a selfish and annoying daughter. I would like to know more about Willow, definitely not about Hannah, but before they jump into the story about Grace.This new writter should read some original V.C. Andrews material and then start over again. But, being that I am such a die-hard fan, I will probably check out the next book. I just hope I'm not so disappointed, or may have to find a new author to love.

i don't have a page 139 the book reads up to 138 and then jumps to 150 then proceeds to repeat it's self; so far i am disappointed with Willow and Hannah; you'd think that there could have been another Willow book and not jump into Hannah but the whole book is crazy; you'd think willow would have been a loving mother after all she's been thru; and hannah would have more sense then to run off with heyden; then again in almost every sereis the girl runs off with a guy; i'm going to see if i can return the book b/c of the missing pages and wrong page numbers; but whoever wrote the comment about the missing pages it's worse for my book and see if you can return it; is anyone looking forward to Grace's story??

I thought the book was ok. But alot was left unfinished. I wonder what happened with the boyfriend(besides what her wrote about to Hannah), and the farm family. They should have either left them out or have told more about them. The farm family should just have it's own series, instead of adding them the the story. I didn't really like how they made Willow seem so sad and that she wasn't such a good mother, it was disapointing. Also

I have read almost all of the VC Andrew books. Roots began with much excitement but had me angry towards the middle of the book. There were many unresolved issues that left me hanging. I truly hated the "farm family" in the book. They had nothing to do with anything. However the worst part was when Hannah's boyfriend just left her hanging. As in the previous review I recommend checking this one out from the library if you feel that you simply must read it.

Overall this book was good and it had an interesting plot. I say surprising and would only give it a four because I did not like the change in Willow. Hannah was okay but I just didn't buy that Willow would raise her to be the way she was. Their were also so many twists and turns in this book that I truly didn't expect. Despite all this it truly was interesting and I found it to be a good read.
