Product description

Review

Praise for Virginia 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 Virginia Andrews died in 1986, leaving a considerable amount of unpublished work.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
Web of dreams is a truely touching novel that pulls my heartstrings even now after reading it as many times as I have. The tale of Heaven's mother - Leigh and how her life changed when her mother left her father for the riches and splendour of Farthinggale Manor and Tony Tatterton. This tale touches even the most cold-blooded of people because it follows the thoughts of one young lady through the two most important years of her life. For those (like me) who read this novel AFTER reading the Saga will know the outcome of the story and how Leigh survives by looking to the future and keeping little Troy company, but still there are a few surprises hidden deep within the walls of Farthinggale Manor. In some ways it makes more sense to read this afterward because the prologue and epilogue of the story make more sense afterward. So what are these surprises? Well without ruining the whole plot I can safely say that readers who know the basic plotline of this story will be shocked as what they were lead to believe in "Heaven", "Dark Angel", "Fallen Hearts" and "Gates of Paradise" is not necessarily the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I will leave it to you to decide on your thoughts. As for me, I Love this book and could not put it down.

Personally, I find the title 'Web of Dreams' a bit off, as it doesn't fit in with the rest of the series titles. But Leigh's story is good, and gives a LOT of explanation as to how Heaven's life turned out the way it did. Tony had told Heaven that it was Leigh's fault, that Leigh was the seductress, but this book shows that not only is Leigh a victim of Tony's unrestrained lust, she is also a victim of her father's neglect and her mother's willful ignorance. In Dark Angel and Fallen Hearts, it's hard to not feel sorry for Jillian as she falls into madness, but in this book, you cannot help but think that Jillian got what she deserved, for being so selfish to Leigh.

The business with Leigh's questioned paternity was a completely unnecessary detail in this book and would have been better left out. Two other things always bothered me - that in the beginning as Annie is going through her great-grandmother's things, she finds Leigh's diary. If Leigh ran away with Luke and took the diary with her, then Jillian wouldn't have been in possession of the book (and thus she would have known of the truth), and the letter at the end reveals that Tony was aware of Heaven's existence long before she came to Farthinggale Manor, since he had a detective track Leigh down. Why did he choose to leave the baby girl up there? Yes, Tony was a slimeball for what he did, but leaving his child up in the mountains without even checking up on its welfare?

It seems that these flaws are Andrew Neiderman's making, since VCA was unable to finish this book, and Neiderman had to finish it for her. He uses the snotty schoolgirl cliche in here that he has used in future books, and in this book, the school drama was really unneccessary.

I love a good family saga and Virginia Andrews never disappoints! I first read the Casteel saga as a teenager and was excited to see them published for Kindle as I don't read paper backs much any more. The overall quality of the publication is good with minimal errors or mistakes which can be common across kindle books. If you enjoy Virginia Andrews books, then the Casteel saga is nearly as good as the Flowers in the Attic series, in fact the Casteel series I would say has more gripping sequels / prequel than the Flowers in the Attic books. As with the rest of Andrews' books it's very easy reading and is a perfect book for unwinding.

This story had me in tears from start to finish. This is the first novel in the Casteel saga that I ever read and once I started it I could not put it down! It is a must have for all Virginia Andrews fans and it will enlighten those who have already been following the Casteel family saga.
