From the author of Flowers in the Attic comes Book Three of the internationally bestselling Dollanganger family saga.
The family was now living as far as possible from the haunting scenes of their past, and, in the sunshine and joy of their new life, with the children and their shared love, they tried to forget the anguish of their loveless inheritance.
But the hidden secrets of the past rose up to trouble them. Their parents' dark heritage began to haunt them once more. The rage and hatred they felt returned to torment and twist the new generation. Only if they could forgive their mother and forgo their final revenge could they at last find the peace they so desperately sought.
`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
