Publisher's Summary

V. C. Andrews gained national fame with Flowers in the Attic, the chilling tale of four young children locked away by their ruthless grandmother. Now, with over 38 million copies of her sensational thrillers in print, V. C. Andrews continues to be a household name even after her death.
After several terrifying years of captivity, the three surviving Dollanganger children have found a way to escape their prison, but they have been scarred forever. Petals on the Wind follows these children into adulthood. Although they find success and fame, they are led deeper into the curse that still haunts their family. As the three struggle to lead normal lives, revenge draws them back to the one who turned the key in the lock so long ago. While the tension grows to a fever pitch, Petals on the Wind moves toward a searing conclusion.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cathy of course....its her story....but all the characters are noteworthy...


Which character – as performed by Alyssa Bresnahan – was your favorite?

I like them all...and sometimes hate them all too...


If you could take any character from Petals on the Wind out to dinner, who would it be and why?

This is a strange question... Considering the book, it is hard to choose....


Any additional comments?

I wish Audible had the rest of this series...I think many people should hear this story, and count there blessings everyday...

So Bad it's Good?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Well-spent? Hmm....I'm sure I'd be a better person if I had read something more "wholesome" ha ha.


Would you ever listen to anything by V. C. Andrews again?

I'd love to hear the rest of the series if they got the same narrator. And My Sweet Audrina, which is the craziest, most f***ed up of all her books.


What does Alyssa Bresnahan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her narration is what made this audible book great. Cause the book itself is pretty bad. But somehow she made the melodrama and flowery purple prose deliciously entertaining.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Nah.


Any additional comments?

I cannot believe my friends and I read all of these books in junior high. Our mothers obviously had no idea what they were about!

I enjoyed this book like I enjoy eating a whole bag of Doritos. It was good in the moment, but afterwards left me feeling ashamed and a little nauseated.
