As many others I have a hard time understanding why Lillian Cutler changed from Angel to demon in the rest of the series. I am slowly trying to read all of V.C. Andrews published works and the Cutler series did not disappoint. I guess so many years ago I fell in Love with Flowers in the Attic so I figured I would check out the rest of the series.. This one was good not the best so far but still pretty brilliant. ( )

This book was so great.

I really felt for Lillian after Eugenia died.
Then I knew, my outlook on her was different. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671759329, Mass Market Paperback)

Growing up on the thriving plantation called The Meadows, Lillian Booth cherishes the brightest, happiest dreams....

Lillian's world is full of grand parties, of sunshine and promises, as thrilling as the fairy tales Mama spins for her and her little sister, Eugenia. No one, not even her cold, stern Papa and her Bible spouting sister Emily, can crush her spirits -- until the day Emily reveals the shattering secret at Lillian's birth, a secret Mama sadly cannot deny. Still Lillian refuses to believe Emily's hateful claim that she is evil, a curse...even when sweet, gentle Eugenia loses her fragile hold on life, and Mama retreats further into her fantasies. But when tragedy befalls her best friend, the one boy whose tender heart mirrors her own, Lillian comes to believe Emily's grim words. Meekly, she endures her penance, finding a strange solace in the endless repetition of prayers in a room stripped of all comforts. Lillian's heart is torn anew when, in a drunken haze, Papa subjects her to the most brutal degradation. Then Papa loses The Meadows in a card game, and Lillian is faced with a new and terrifying prospect. Arrogant, handsome playboy Bill Cutler will return the plantation -- if Lillian will marry him! Now Lillian must leave her girlhood home behind, and make a bold new beginning as the mistress of a hotel called Cutler's Cove...
