TBR Thursday is hosted by She is too fond of books.
Flowers in the Attic (Dollanganger #1) by V.C. Andrews
Such wonderful children. Such a beautiful mother. Such a lovely house. Such endless terror!
It wasn’t that she didn’t love her children. She did. But there was a fortune at stake–a fortune that would assure their later happiness if she could keep the children a secret from her dying father.
So she and her mother hid her darlings away in an unused attic.
Just for a little while.
But the brutal days swelled into agonizing years. Now Cathy, Chris, and the twins wait in their cramped and helpless world, stirred by adult dreams, adult desires, served a meager sustenance by an angry, superstitious grandmother who knows that the Devil works in dark and devious ways. Sometimes he sends children to do his work–children who–one by one–must be destroyed….
‘Way upstairs there are
four secrets hidden.
Blond, beautiful, innocent
struggling to stay alive….
Why it’s on my TBR:
I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by V.C. Andrews before. I know I’ve wanted to for years and that this was the one I wanted to read the most. I actually found Flowers in the Attic at Goodwill for a couple of dollars. I hope to get to this one soon.
