Flowers in the Attic Book Review: At the top of the stairs there are four secrets hidden. Blond, beautiful, innocent, and struggling to stay alive. They are a perfect family until a tragedy shatters their happiness. Now, for the sake of an inheritance that will ensure their future, the children have to hide away out of sight. They live on the top floor of their grandmother’s vast mansion and their loving mother assures them it will be just for a little while. But as brutal days swell into agonising months and years, Cathy, Chris, and twins Cory and Carrie, realise their survival is at the mercy of their cruel and superstitious grandmother and the attic may be the only world they ever know.
The author writes well and the book has good pace. Also the story keeps you wanting to know more.
The subject matter may be hard for some readers.
