Whitefern by V.C. Andrews
Posted by Krystal Larson at 6:10 PM Thursday, August 25, 2016
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 Audina’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…
I have a strange addiction to V.C. Andrews novels and this one proved not exception. I do have to say that I wish the ghost writer had incorporated more of the original traits into the character (Arden really did love Audrina and in this book he...did not). The plot is intriguing and pretty fast-paced. Although I could guess at the ending and what was generally going to happen, I still wanted to finish the book. I enjoyed Audrina's character. She was regal, intelligent, and serene. Arden's character though...I feel like he was butchered. I would have preferred the "old" Arden from the original book back (the passion he has for Audrina and how he was a nice-ish person). I kind of thought his character was demonized and thrust into a role he wasn't meant to fill. Syliva's character changed too much from the original, as well. She is no longer herself, but instead a more or less OK, but emotional young woman. I thought that really twisted the original story. Overall, I think this book would have been a little better if it wasn't the "second" in the series and was on its own.
