The twins didn't grow, and her two older children were becoming sexually attracted to one another. She actually knows this and tries "not to see ". She tries to take away her fears by buying Cathy small girl's clothes. The reason why this revelation of Corrinne and Christopher Snr is hinted rather that explicitly stated in the book, is that it is a clever subterfuge by Andrews to highlight Catherine our prime narrator's inability to comprehend her mother's actions or to find "forgiveness" as demonstrated by the following "Appealingly Chris gazed into my eyes, making his heart and soul vulnerable for my scorn to injure.
She wounded us so deeply I feel neither one of us will ever recover until we do understand. I have forgiven her, but I can't forget. I want to understand so I can help you to forgive her. There is a hint in Flowers in the Attic about a woman shoved into the trunks. She begins to hate her half uncle because he should have know he was actually her brother.

The family is actually the whole of humanity. The secrets they learned in the attic higher place is the story of human history. Human beings have the the ability to hurt, kill and destroy the bad gene and the only saving grace is our ability to love. The doppelganger pattern. Mm, the universe is sure strange, I am currently reading a Dean Koontz book and a hour ago came across a single word to sum up my thought - "SUBTEXT" -" the underlying, implicit meaning of the story, which the writer never directly expressed".

These books will keep you up all night just wondering "What's going to happen now! Dec 14, Bernie rated it really liked it. I was griped by the story when I read the first book Flowers in the Attic. After that I had to read the rest of the series. It is not a heart warming tale and shows how dark some religious people's souls are to children by treating them with such indifference.

By regarding them as the "Spourn of Satan" and locking them in an attic for years shows how dark it gets. It has a few sub-stories such as the mother and father's relationship. The background to the mother's life and the grandfathers influ I was griped by the story when I read the first book Flowers in the Attic.
The background to the mother's life and the grandfathers influence on matters. The main story is about the children, their lives before the attic, the relationships and bounds they form in the attic and the affect the attic had on not only their lives but the lives of their offspring. Some characters are just bad at heart or have no heart while the children are the ones you are rooting for.
I gave this four stars because I found the second book slightly long winded but apart from that I would recommend this series of books to everyone. This is a series that I want to read again.
