The long-awaited sequel to My Sweet Audrina, one of V.C. Andrews's strangest, most beloved books--and now a Lifetime movie! Whitefern swallowed Audrina's childhood--and now the sprawling Victorian mansion threatens her adult life too... Audrina remembers a better time, when her husband, Arden, was a young man with a heart filled with devotion for her. He didn't used to be this ambitious, expansive...this cruel. But then, the death of Aurdina's father changed a great many things. When the reading of her father's will reveals that Audrina herself will control fifty-one percent of the family brokerage--the halls of Whitefern again don't feel safe. Arden's protestations become frantic, nearly violent. And while Audrina didn't anticipate running the family business, she's curious to do so. And she can't help but wonder what had made her father change his will at the last minute? What did he know about Arden that she didn't? Trapped in the middle of it all: her fragile, simple sister--the beautiful, trusting Sylvia. Audrina promised her father she'd watch over the young woman. But after years of relative quiet, the dark days of Whitefern may have returned...… (lisätietoja)

Another win for V.C. Andrews. Whitefern has the same feel as the old V.C. Andrews I read when I was a kid. This is a continuation of Audrina. Audrina is grown and married, taking care of her sister in Whitefern. Come on this wonderful journey and learn all the secrets that still permeate the walls of Whitefern. Who will get caught in the web of deceit? ( )

When I found out that there was a sequel to V. C. Andrews' "My Sweet Audrina", I had to run out and get it. "Audrina" was one Andrews actually wrote herself before she passed away, so it holds a special place in my heart. This one wasn't quite as good, and it was terribly predictable, but it was still fun. Audrina is all grown up and her father passes away, leaving the majority share of his stockbroking company to her rather than her husband, Arden. Arden is incensed and demands Audrina sign over her share of the company to him so he can run it properly, but Audrina shows some spirit and holds him off. In the meantime, she hires an art tutor for her developmentally disabled younger sister, Sylvia. Audrina soon discovers the art teacher is molesting Sylvia and that she is pregnant. Since she and Arden have been having issues conceiving, Arden convinces her to pretend she's pregnant and they'll raise Sylvia's baby as their own. ( )

I abandoned this halfway through, because as thrilled as I was to see a sequel to My Sweet Audrina, I was even more infuriated as I read this book that it was ever published. This novel is an obvious cash-grab for readers of V. C. Andrews's best book. The ghostwriter abusing her name and memory here clearly didn't even bother rereading the original! Here are the errors apparent just in the first few chapters:

1. Audrina was taught she was the younger sister of the departed Audrina, not older.

2. Arden's mother and Audrina's father never got married. (This is mentioned at least three times -- ugh.)

3. Sylvia is intimated in the original to have fetal alcohol syndrome. In this novel, she suddenly is a high-functioning autistic who has learned extensive verbal skills. Autism would not explain the obvious things wrong with her at birth in the first novel, as autism is not visible at birth.

4. Arden really became a jerk, and why? No backstory for the drastic personality change is given. It's like he's a new cardboard stand-in for the "abuse Audrina" trope.

Avoid it. Cherish your memories of the one good V. C. Andrews novel by steering clear of this mess. ( )

I have not read V.C. Andrews since high school and Flowers in the Attic (didnt everyone read this one!) And since I have been in a small reading slump lately and what better than V.C Andrews to pull me out.

These books had me engrossed from the very start. Between the eerie house with the locked doors and strange places, to the weird characters like Vera with her brittle bones and her Femme Fatale ways…this is V.C Andrews at its best. The way these characters interact are unique and bizarre. Their deviant behavior just amazed me from the very first word.

The family is exactly what you expect from one of these books, weird, strange and downright creepy especially with their family secrets and lies! It is psychological drama that lures the reader in with the expectations for more darkness and creepiness. And did I mention the house…yes…I did…the house..I want to explore so badly!!

I did find Whitefern a little less enchanting than My Sweet Audrina. I don’t know if I read them too close together or if my expectation was too much. But, I found that Audrina was a little more strange than in the first book, almost too whiney for my taste. I also caught a few errors and the story and the characters were a little flat and did not capture my attention like the first book.

What a psycho, abnormal gothic horror series. The foreboding atmosphere create a strange, odd world to totally get lost in. I cannot wait to see what weirdness the next installment will take.

I received these novels from Simon and Schuster as part of XOXperts ( )
