Petals on the Wind, . His darkly fringed blue eyes rivaled the color of a summer sky, and he was in personality like a warm sunny day-he put on a brave face despite the bleakness of our situation. His straight and finely shaped nose had just taken on the strength and maturity that promised to make him all that our father had been-the type of man to make every woman's heart flutter when he looked her way, or even when he didn't.

Petals on the Wind, page 14. part of Dollenganger Series. In Greenglenna I pored for hours over old books written about the founding families of Greenglenna. His ancestors had arrived just about the same time mine had, back in the eighteenth century, and they too had been from England, settling down in Virginia in the part that was now North Carolina. I looked up and stared into space.

For Carrie, Chris and Cathy the attic was a dark horror that would not leave their minds. Of course mother had to pretend they didn't exist and grandmother was convinced they had the devil in them. But that wasn't their fault. Was it? Cathy knew what to do. She knew it was time to show her mother and grandmother that the pain and terror of the attic could not be forgotten...Show them. Show them -- once and for all.

I debated heartily on whether or not to read the second Dollanganger novel. I thought the first was so incredibly brilliant and original that the follow-up novels couldn't match up--but I took a chance and am happy to report I was wrong.

Petals picks up where Flowers in the Attic left off and is again in the voice of Cathy, the oldest daughter. Her inner monologue is again quite childish (which did bother me at times, since I felt she never grew up from that young girl I first encountered) but her dialogue and actions did change, so I overlooked it.

Her focus in this book is to A. Get over Chris and find a new man to love her how she wants and B. Get revenge on those who harmed her in Flowers. Dreams she and Chris held dear since childhood come true, some of them in ways expected and some with twists; other dreams die cold, ruthless deaths that bring up questions on who is to blame--Corrine, as Cathy so desperately wants to blame her for every dark part of her life or is Cathy to blame because all of her actions are in direct response to her mother's choices so long ago?

I've finished the book and am still pondering the question, which is always the mark of an incredible novel for me. If I'm still thinking about it for weeks after (as I did with Flowers) it automatically marks a spot on my favorites shelf.

I wasn't sure, going into this book, if it would live up to the first and it does. I wasn't sure if I'd want to continue, still believing they can't all be so amazing, but I plan to give it a try. Though some of the writing does seem childish to me, Andrews makes up for it with lines that beg to be highlighted and returned to again and again. And the end--oh! I can't wait to start Thorns and find out what happens next to these little Dresden Dolls.

***UPDATED REVIEW***
**I just started the third book If There Be Thorns. I must say, one must without a doubt read Petals on the Wind in order for the storyline to knit together. I stand by my review of this book, but it fits together without much confusion since I've began If There be Thorns. Don't become discouraged with Petals on the Wind if it seems confusing. You'll need the background for it all to blend.**
Flowers In a The Attic, even after 30 yrs and reading it twice, still remains among my list of favorites. Petals On The Wind is a book full of twisted revenge, yet suspenseful. You must stick with this book and not become discouraged if it seems as if it's going nowhere. It can be confusing at times, which led to me going back to re-read some parts. The main focus of this book is Cathy seeking revenge on her mother while trying to fulfill her dreams of becoming a primaballerina. It doesn't focus much on Christopher or on Carrie. The confusion is Cathy herself. A confused teen who, in my opinion, doesn't know how to let go of the past while growing into adulthood. This sets her on a path of self-destruction in a way. She's smart and beautiful, but will not let go of the revenge towards her mother. She's also caught up in a tangled web of men fighting for her attention and her giving into the attention. Seducing her mothers new husband, Bart, is part of the revenge, but Cathy falls in love with him. There's Julian, her dance partner, who she's convinced she loves and marries...stays married to him although he's abusive and she justifies his actions in one way or another. Then there's her brother who still loves her and won't let go of the idea that they were meant to be together, sinful or not. Dr Paul, who took the 3 of them in and became a "father figure", made sure they didn't go without, including an education...but somehow Cathy manages to seduce him and a love affair develops between them. The book is scattered and, as I said, it focused on Cathy and the way she goes about life as she sees it and is consumed full of revenge and she continues to plot against her mother. Christopher and Carrie are mentioned, but clearly aren't the main focus. I'll have to admit, the revenge towards her mother at the end did indeed make a wonderful grand entrance. But it seemed after that, the author made a mad dash to tie up the loose ends of the novel which seemed scattered and not well written. However, in order to continue with the series, one must read this book. I'm still left with questions as why the book was written in such a confusing manner. Perhaps the next book in the series will clarify the confusion and this book will become clear as to the way it was put together. I don't regret reading this book and yes, I do recommend it.

Oh my!!!Cathy, you naughty, naughty, dirty girl!! hahaha! I read this book back when I was 17 in 1980 and I remember being shocked and a little turned on. Now at 51 I still find what a fun, little delight these books were to me as a teen, Now to reread them once more all these years later (due to the Lifetime upcoming move of Petals on May 26th) is just as much fun. Cathy is just too much as she seeks Revenge on her poor mother and hateful Grandmother ( well not really if you have read all the books, if you haven't you'll find out in Garden of Shadows what I mean in the end). This time around I actually read Shadows first then Flowers in the Attic and I actually liked it better that way. But if this is your first romp with these books read them in the proper order, be surprised in the end with a lot of unanswered questions finally answered. I will continue with the rest now that Lifetime as purchased the rights to all in this series. Would I say to read these books? Absolutely. Now that Summer is moving in and we all like a book to read at the beach, or on the deck, or just sitting in the sun in the yard. It's easy brain dead reading and once and awhile everyone needs it. These are not well written books (though they made millions for the author and the publisher) just a fun, silly little ditty to make you gasp, laugh and just plain put it down after reading it and call it trash,...but not bad trash!

This sequel to the classic adolescent novel Flowers in the Attic is somewhat immaturely written (but it's targeted at a teen audience, and I'm almost 45, so I'll let that slide), and some of what happens is a bit tough to swallow, as in, "this would never happen this way in real life", but it's certainly full of the same kind of drama and suspense that led us through Flowers in the Attic from beginning to end. In some ways, I think this series would have been better written in third person omniscient as opposed to first person narrative, since the narrator, Cathy, is so driven/jaded by her bitterness. There were times when I wondered what the other characters were thinking and I believe it would have made a better novel if I'd known.
