Overview

The long-awaited sequel to My Sweet Audrina, one of V.C. Andrews’s strangest, most beloved books—and now a Lifetime movie! Whitefern swallowed Audrina’s childhood—and now the sprawling Victorian mansion threatens her adult life too…

Audrina remembers a better time, when her husband, Arden, was a young man with a heart filled with devotion for her. He didn’t used to be this ambitious, expansive…this cruel. But then, the death of Aurdina’s father changed a great many things.

When the reading of her father’s will reveals that Audrina herself will control fifty-one percent of the family brokerage—the halls of Whitefern again don’t feel safe. Arden’s protestations become frantic, nearly violent. And while Audrina didn’t anticipate running the family business, she’s curious to do so. And she can’t help but wonder what had made her father change his will at the last minute? What did he know about Arden that she didn’t?

Trapped in the middle of it all: her fragile, simple sister—the beautiful, trusting Sylvia. Audrina promised her father she’d watch over the young woman. But after years of relative quiet, the dark days of Whitefern may have returned…

I've been a VC Andrews fan since I found my mom's copy of flowers in the Attic when I was 9. By the time I was 13 I had read every VC Andrews book I could lay hand on. My sweet audrina has special meaning for me since my mom was reading it the day she met my dad. All that said, this book is an insult to Andrews memory and my intelligence. Predictable and boring I threw it away half way into the story literally the worst book I've read in years. If I could give -1 stars I would.

Ah, my trip down memory lane. When I was younger, graduating from reading YA novels to reading adult ones via Virginia Andrews was almost a rite of passage, so I picked up this book with much nostalgia. A lot of this book was repetitive and recapped My Sweet Audrina - the book it has been written as a sequel to. This isn't surprising, maybe, considering how long ago the first book was written. It's also worth mentioning that the first book was written by VC, herself, and the second book by the ghost writer employed by the Andrews family to, in essence, continue the legacy. In truth, although the family has found a pretty worthy ghost writer in terms of style, content was lacking and not much happened in the book. I felt disappointed that the characters had become pretty unlikeable - there wasn't even one redeeming hero to pul the book through, and my memory says there was always one of those. I had no idea when this book was set. I couldn't pin down a time period at all. There weren't really any cues that tied in together. I have given 2* for over all style (very similar to the VC Andrews melodrama and overly-descriptive prose that I remember) but the story content was really, really lacking and it didn't add anything to the previous book, in my opinion. I think My Sweet Audrina should have been left alone. Still it was a quick read. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

I have not read V.C. Andrews since high school and Flowers in the Attic (didnt everyone read this one!) And since I have been in a small reading slump lately and what better than V.C Andrews to pull me out. These books had me engrossed from the very start. Between the eerie house with the locked doors and strange places, to the weird characters like Vera with her brittle bones and her Femme Fatale ways…this is V.C Andrews at its best. The way these characters interact are unique and bizarre. Their deviant behavior just amazed me from the very first word. The family is exactly what you expect from one of these books, weird, strange and downright creepy especially with their family secrets and lies! It is psychological drama that lures the reader in with the expectations for more darkness and creepiness. And did I mention the house…yes…I did…the house..I want to explore so badly!! I did find Whitefern a little less enchanting than My Sweet Audrina. I don’t know if I read them too close together or if my expectation was too much. But, I found that Audrina was a little more strange than in the first book, almost too whiney for my taste. I also caught a few errors and the story and the characters were a little flat and did not capture my attention like the first book. What a psycho, abnormal gothic horror series. The foreboding atmosphere create a strange, odd world to totally get lost in. I cannot wait to see what weirdness the next installment will take. I received these novels from Simon and Schuster as part of XOXperts

Whitefern (Audrina, #2) by V.C. Andrews The second book of the Sweet Audrina series, as poignant story of personal struggle and triumph. Audrina is madancholy person who struggles to live with her horrendous past and her bleak future. Her father’s death has sent her and her sister into a tail spin. It is questionable if she will be able to pull herself and Sylvia through the sadness and darkness of Whitefern manor. She is not prepared for the jubbities that life has set before her. She feels that she has failed to protect Sylvia, when someone takes advantage of her. Yet it is her strength that will bring her and Sylvia through the next year’s trials and tribulations and find a solution to Arden and his plans. This book looks into the reality of sheltered lives, and the powerful draw of history and legacy.

He will ruin this. My Sweet Audrina is too complex for him to write a credible sequel.
