Seeds of Yesterday
The final, heartbreaking story in the compelling saga that began with 'Flowers in the Attic', repackaged for a new generation of fans. Cathy and Chris, haunted by the tragedies and sins of the past, return at last to Foxworth Hall where they were hidden so long ago. Despite every endeavour, they find that they are prisoners of a past they cannot escape, and with a terrifying certainty, the past comes back to prey upon them once more!
A fantastic finale to the "flowers in the attic" series. The most upsetting of the four books and the one that really stays with you. The one bad point is that "petals on the wind" and "if there be thorns" are not as good and have to be read to really to enjoy this final book. Nevertheless, if you enjoyed Flowers in the attic and long to know what happens after then the saga is thrilling and exciting. But prepare for a major change in the attitude of the children as they grow up.
