Summary

The inspiration behind Lifetime’s new miniseries event, Flowers in the Attic: The Origin

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 spread...an 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!

Wonderfully Narration! A must read for anyone who is a fan of “Flowers in The Attic!” I read these books years ago and I was thrilled to learn of this book FINALLY getting its own audio edition. I have listened to the complete series in audiobook and you should too.

As a side note: The new Lifetime movie “Flowers in The Attic: The Origin” for which “Garden of Shadows” is based steers so far the book it’s ridiculously disappointing.
I am currently watching & it’s a good little TV movie ONLY IF you have NEVER READ THE BOOK. Anyone that has read the book prior to seeing the movie know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.

I truly wished the movie stayed remotely close to the source material sadly it did NOT.

Olivia in physical description & temperament is nothing at all portrayed on tv as in the book. I do understand TV movies do stray from novels but to delve that far from the author’s vision… “An Abomination!”

V.C Andrews fans READ THE BOOK!

Garden of Shadows (a.k.a.) The Origins

was amazing from start to finish by the time the book was finished I was ready for some more.
this family is intriguing incestuous and religious no matter what age you are this is still a powerful cocktail.
