Many years ago, a co-worker lent me a book to read on my lunch break – Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews. I was instantly hooked on this twisted tale. I ended up stopping at the store on the way home from work that day to buy all of the books in the series.
Petals in The Wind in the second book. The movie does a great job of explaining the back story, so you can follow along even if you haven’t read the books or seen the first movie.
The story is unique and expertly written. V.C. Andrews writes with vivid detail and with multiple components of the story all woven together perfectly. I thought the whole thing was fiction, but there are rumors that it is at least somewhat based on a true story. We may never know.
The movie is not rated and is not for children due to the adult themes. If the synopsis sounds good to you, you’ll want to watch it when the kids are not around.
Petals on the Wind
Release date 9/16/14

And as tragedy strikes again, Cathy returns to Foxworth Hall to confront her grandmother and seek revenge on her mother.
