Olivia dreamed of a sun-filled love, a happy life. Then she entered Foxworth Hall...
V.C. Andrews' thrilling new novel spins a tale of dreadful secrets and dark, forbidden passions -- of the time before Flowers in the Attic began. Long before terror flowered in the attic, thin, spinsterish Olivia came to Virginia as Malcolm Foxworth's bride. At last, with her tall handsome husband, she would find the joy she had waited for, longed for. But in the gloomy mansion filled with hidden rooms and festering desires, a stain of jealous obsession begins to evil that will threaten her children, two lovely boys and one very special, beautiful girl. For within one innocent child, a shocking secret lives...a secret that will taint the proud Foxworth name, and haunt all their lives forever!

If you didn't read this before you began the Dollanganger series then reading it at the end will make complete sense. In fact, I can't emphasized enough how I enjoyed reading this particular book after and not before all the me it's the only way to understand the intelligent but peculiar similarities carried down through the generations.

This book if not read before the other 2, when u finally get to it, it will make a lot of sense no matter if you read it first or last but don't ever read it in between because it can confuse you. it really explains a lot as to how and why the rest of the books truly came about, good book
