Product Description

Review

Praise for Viginia Andrews:

‘Beautifully written, macabre and thoroughly nasty… it is evocative of the nasty fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood and The Babes in the Wood, with a bit of Victorian Gothic thrown in. … What does shine through is her ability to see the world through a child’s eyes’ Daily Express

‘Makes horror irresistible’ Glasgow Sunday Mail

‘A gruesome saga… the storyline is compelling, many millions have no wish to put this down’ Ms London

‘There is strength in her books – the bizarre plots matched with the pathos of the entrapped’ The Times

About the Author

Virginia Andrews lived in Norfolk, Virginia, studied art and worked as a fashion illustrator, commercial artist and portrait painter. Flowers in the Attic, based on a true story, was her first novel. It became an immediate bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first published in 1979. Virginia Andrews died in 1986, leaving a considerable amount of unpublished work.

Format: Paperback
A fantastic finale to the "flowers in the attic" series. The most upsetting of the four books and the one that really stays with you. The one bad point is that "petals on the wind" and "if there be thorns" are not as good and have to be read to really to enjoy this final book. Nevertheless, if you enjoyed Flowers in the attic and long to know what happens after then the saga is thrilling and exciting. But prepare for a major change in the attitude of the children as they grow up.

Format: Kindle Edition
The concluding part of the Dollanganger saga ( if you exclude the final prequel "Garden of Shadows" that was only part written by Virginia Andrews ) and follows the lives of Chris and Cathy with the children Bart , Jory and Cindy. Bart is nearing his twenty fifth birthday with Jory a few years older and Cindy still a teenager. The novel tends to concentrate on how Bart , now a law graduate , has apparently recovered from his wayward behaviour but his actions tend to indicate that this is far from the case and he has an ally in Joel ( his great uncle ) who turns up with his uber religious ideas causing Bart to become even more disturbed than he was as a child ( Religion rears its ugly head again ). Chris and Cathy are still having an incestuous relationship that I find disturbing especially as the writing seems to imply that such relationships are not as bad as most people think they are. I've only given the novel three stars as after reading I was left with the feeling that to condone incest is wrong and the prose should have made that clear.

It is 1997. Bart has inherited a considerable amount of the Foxworth fortune after his Grandmother's death. Along with the help of his Great Uncle Joel he has used some of his money to duplicate the Foxworth Hall mansion around its original ruins.
Cathy and Chris, now in their early 50s are visiting Bart to celebrate his 25th Birthday.
Though Bart is initially pleased to see Cathy, he's long since acknowledged Chris as his father and can barely bring himself to look at him.
It soon becomes apparent that the strange, elderly and religious ex-monk, Uncle Joel, has a strong influence over Bart which Cathy finds deeply worrying.
Soon Jory and his wife, Melodie, arrive at Foxworth Hall. Both are now famous ballerinas.
As soon as Bart sees Melodie he becomes instantly infatuated with her.
Finally 16 year old Cindy makes her appearance. She has evolved into a beautiful, sexual, flirtatious young woman.
At Bart's birthday party, Jory is persuaded to dance. Tragedy strikes which dramatically changes the family's life and what was supposed to be a brief visit, for everyone, to Foxworth Hall, extends into something much more permanent. For Cathy and Chris it is to be their final home. For them everything has come full circle.

This is the fourth novel following the Dollanganger saga.
Like the third novel, Bart creates much of the drama in this story. He has grown up to be a very conflicted, violent young man. He cares only for making more money, his own needs and waits until he will have full control over his portion of the Foxworth Fortune.
Jory is definitely the shining light within the darkness Bart creates. He truly is an honourable, forgiving and optimistic person, against all odds.

Never has a book touched my heart the way Seeds of Yesterday has.
It is the most fantastic, well written and upsetting, tragic story I have ever read.
As I came towards the end of the book I was in floods of tears. When you read this book and the others it actually feels like you feel all of the emotions the characters feel.
I definitely recommend this book and all of the others.

Format: Paperback
This book was THE most emotional in this harrowing saga - I cried whilst reading almost the whole of the ending it was so sad - and I was reading it travelling to work! I couldn't think about anything else for the whole day. Virginia Andrews is such a compelling writer her work never fails to move you.

Format: Paperback
This story doesn't have so much to do with the first three Dollanganger books, as it's now 1997 (over a decade set after the actual date VCA published this, in the mid-80's) but still stands as a decent story in its own right, with the surprising reappearance of a character long thought dead. And religion comes back with this character, reminding Chris and Cathy all too well why they didn't want anything to do with religion. As a part of a series, Seeds of Yesterday doesn't contribute overmuch to the Foxworth saga, which is sad, because it'd have been nice to learn more about the Foxworths.

Just one plothole - in SoY, it's 1997, but in the next book 'Garden of Shadows' (prequel to Flowers in the Attic), Olivia Foxworth's will included a letter to be opened 20 years after her death (which was the story of GoS) and her death was in 1972, so Chris and Cathy should have read GoS by now and already be aware of what happened between Malcolm and Olivia.

This marks the finale of the Dollanganger series by VC Andrews. And it was a brilliant finish. Tragic yes, but they seemed to have overcome the conflicts that haunted them...Chris and Cathy I mean. Despite the not so good prequels to it (with the exception of Flowers in the Attic), it made interest in the series rise again.
