Summary- Christopher Dollanganger was fourteen when he, Cathy and the twins, were locked away in the attic of Foxworth Hall, prisoners of their mother’s greedy inheritance scheme.
For three long years he kept hope alive for the sake of the others. But the shocking truth about how their ordeal affected him was always kept hidden—until now.
Seventeen-year-old Kristin Masterwood is thrilled when her father is hired to inspect the Foxworth property for a prospective buyer. The once grand Southern mansion still sparks legends and half-truths about the four innocent Dollanganger children, even all these decades later. But Foxworth holds a special fascination for Kristin, who was too young when her mother died to learn much about her distant blood tie to the notorious family.
Accompanying her dad to the “forbidden territory,” they find a leather-bound book, its yellowed pages filled with the neat script of Christopher Dollanganger himself. Her father grows increasingly uneasy about her reading it, but as she devours the teen’s story page by page, his shattering account of temptation, heartache, courage, and betrayal overtakes Kristin’s every thought. And soon her obsession with the doomed boy crosses a dangerous line . . .
Why- I know the real VC Andrews died ages ago and this is written by a ghostwriter but I am actually kind of excited about this new installment in the Dollanganger saga. Christopher is an amazing character who raped (yes he did, don’t mince it), fell in love and married his own sister. He’s utterly amazing. To get a version of Flowers in his point of view is to die for. It’s probably going to suck but a girl can dream.
