Long before Garden of Shadows, the prequel to Flowers in the Attic, a young girl named Corrine Dixon met Garland Foxworth and, after a short, passionate rendezvous, the two shared a forbidden and complicated relationship. Now, in this evocative and thrilling tale from New York Times bestselling author V.C. Andrews, discover the fascinating family history of the Dollanganger clan and how they came to be as a result of a fast and passionate seduction.
In 1890, Corrine Dixon meets and is swept away by the charms of rich, sophisticated, and handsome Garland Foxworth. After discovering that she’s pregnant, Garland does what appears to be the honorable thing and marries her in a huge wedding ceremony on the luxurious Foxworth Hall grounds while both families keep her pregnancy a secret.
Now the mistress of the labyrinthine estate, Corrine discovers that nothing is what is seems. Garland is not the man she expected and she’s uncomfortable with his intense infatuation with his deceased mother’s memory. Can she survive this strange new life? Or is her fate already sealed? Explore the origins of the legendary Dollanganger family in this page-turning and gripping gothic thriller.
