The long-awaited sequel to My Sweet Audrina, one of V.C. Andrews’s strangest, most beloved books—and now a Lifetime movie! Whitefern swallowed Audrina’s childhood—and now the sprawling Victorian mansion threatens her adult life too…

Audrina remembers a better time, when her husband, Arden, was a young man with a heart filled with devotion for her. He didn’t used to be this ambitious, expansive…this cruel. But then, the death of Audrina’s father changed a great many things.

When the reading of her father’s will reveals that Audrina herself will control fifty-one percent of the family brokerage—the halls of Whitefern again don’t feel safe. Arden’s protestations become frantic, nearly violent. And while Audrina didn’t anticipate running the family business, she’s curious to do so. And she can’t help but wonder what had made her father change his will at the last minute? What did he know about Arden that she didn’t?

Trapped in the middle of it all: her fragile, simple sister—the beautiful, trusting Sylvia. Audrina promised her father she’d watch over the young woman. But after years of relative quiet, the dark days of Whitefern may have returned…

Why I’m looking forward to it:

Holy crap, you guys!! How did I not know this was coming until last week?? My Sweet Audrina has to be one of the most crazysauce this-cannot-really-be-a-book book that I’ve ever read. And considering I glommed as much V.C. Andrews as I could when I was kid, that’s really saying something. I’ve preordered this one, and I fully intend to clear my schedule to read it the minute it hits my Kindle.

What about you? What are you looking forward to this week?

      I’m stupidly excited for this. I should have realized something was coming when they were giving away copies of My Sweet Audrina at RT. I’m planning to reread that one before I go on to Whitefern.
