One of the most popular storytellers of all time, V.C. Andrews (Flowers in the Attic, My Sweet Audrina) continues an astonishing saga of psychological suspense with this third book of the Landry Family series—soon to be a Lifetime movie! Driven from the ornate Dumas Mansion back to her beloved bayou, Ruby struggles to begin her life anew in this atmospheric and thrilling novel.
Living again in a humble shack, Ruby is determined to make a secure and happy home for her precious daughter, Pearl. At her side once more is Paul Tate, her first love, now a man of dazzling wealth. Whisked away to his grand house, it seems Ruby can forget the shocking reason she and Paul must wed in secret and remain husband and wife in name alone.
But the grand walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the cold eyes of Paul’s mother. And when Ruby’s venomous twin sister, Gisselle, arrives to taunt her with news of Pearl’s secret father, the twisted lengths to which Ruby will go for love surprise even her. To save her family and her heart, she ally with her greatest enemy to do the unthinkable.
