Pretty good book. The beginning is a little slow because it's all regarding previous information learned from the first 3 books in the series.

I felt bad for the tortured soul of Laura. To be so happy and in love with someone who obviously felt the same for her to have tragedy strike. The character of Grandmother Olivia is the most evil in this book. Her despicable decision to commit Laura to a mental institution after discovering her amnesia is unforgiveable.

The book then reminds me of the mov

The prequel to it all! We get an inside look at the gemini of Melody Logan, and realize the truth about what had actually happened to her before the series' protagonist had actually arrived. All the unanswered questions such as "how did _____ happen" or "what made _____ like ______". It all comes full circle with this book. I can't really remember why I rated it three stars. In fact, it seems a little... forgettable compared the main series. All I remember is the ending, and that I was shocked a ...more

This fourth book in the Logan series, is about Laura Logan. If you have already read the first three books of the series then you already know that she is (view spoiler) This book just merely takes us back to see how. Like most V.C. Andrews books it sticks to a structure, and gives us an insight on how effed up the world can be.

This book was about the background of Laura Logan, sister of Cary and May. The beginning of the book was slow and predictable, with Laura meeting Robert Royce, her school life, and home life. It got better after the boating accident with Robert and Laura. Grandma Olivia takes over after Laura is rescued and puts her in a mental institution, since she has no memory of anyone or anything. We are under the impression that even if Laura remembers everything, she will be forced to stay at the institu ...more

This is an extra appendage to the Logan family saga and though Melody's story is efficiently dealt with in the preceding novel, Unfinished Symphony this book charts the story of one of the main characters from the rest in the series.
Laura Logan is Cary's twin sister, they are inseparable to the point they get teased for their closeness.
Life proceeds along until the point one day where Laura meets and falls in love with Robert and the close bond the siblings share is threatened by an outside ele

The fourth book in the Logan series takes us back to before Laura died, and it was nice to find out what happened to her. As always, these books are such a guilty pleasure of mine, and I'm ashamed at how much I enjoy them.

The beginning of this was kind of boring, because I didn't care that much about her relationship with Robert. I did think Cary was a total creeper, and that makes me wary about his future with Melody.

The second half of this book was MUCH better, though. (view spoiler)

When I read these novels back in the day I would have given them 3-3.5 STARS and now would say about one Star

As a preteen reading these novels was a rebellion and the gothic theme also seemed cool. I stopped reading this author because

This book is written from Laura's perspective and it's supposed to give us an insight as to what actually happened to her. For me, I found this book quite boring due to the fact that in the 3rd book, Melody discovers Laura's fate and grandmother Olivia's cruelty. Also, Cary's weird possessiveness of his sister is implied on many occasions on the previous books (ie the hole he created on the attic floor to watch her) therefore the reader has already formed a theory as to what life was like for La ...more

This was my first V.C. Andrews book I have read. I have seen her book that where turned in to movies and really thought I was not going to like her books. So I went into this book thinking I was going to hate it. Well I didn't hate it, in fact I feel in love with it. This book was about every emotion you could feel. I'm not going to lie up until Chapter 5 I was pretty bored. I started Chapter 5 today and well as you can see finished the book within that day. If you like unhappy ending (like me) ...more

Entertaining but I did a lot of skimming as I found it a bit wordy.
A Synopsis?
"Life is pretty much perfect for Laura Logan. She has loving parents, an adorable little sister, her boyfriend Robert, and her protective twin brother, Cary. Only, Cary is jealous of Robert. He believes that Robert is just out to use girls and break their hearts. Also, Cary refuses to let Laura grow up.

But when grandmother Olivia finds out that Laura is dating Robert, she demands that Laura end the relationship. Grand

This book gets increasingly more interesting. There is a HUGE paradox going on. The beginning of the book was beautiful, sweet, and innocent. During what seems like the second half of the story, Laura is in a mental institution where there is a lot of darkness, anger, and pain. Perhaps this symbolizes the ebbs and flows of love. Love can be magical and love can be painful. I think the ending was well done where Laura reunites with Robert in true love after death. I think this gives the story a R ...more

Very entertaining. The most interesting part was, of course, when she wound up in a mental hospital. Before that it was just recounting events one has already learned if they have read the previous books. There was no account of how Laura and Robert met and fell for each other. When this began they were already dating and Cary had this creepy obsession with his sister's love life. Laura, of course, was bland, as are most of the V.C. Andrews protagonists. And her father was a douche. But I'm asha ...more

This book broke the usual pattern of previous VCA books by being about a cousin of the main protagonist rather than their children. But then, the ending of Unfinished Symphony pretty much wrapped up everything to give Cary and Melody a happy ending. My beef with this series is how helpless and fragile May is made simply because of her deafness, this is ridiculous. Other than that, the Logan family series had been decent, and this book gives us a surprising peek into the Logan family secrets.

I just wish I knew how to quit V.C. Andrews.

Or, in this case, the ghost writer for V.C. Andrews.

You see, I discovered that the real V.C. Andrews died after completing the Flowers in the Attic series along with only a handful of other books, and that her family hired a ghost writer to write a ton more titles under her name. The Logan Family Series were among those titles.

That's why nothing is quite as juicy or good as Flowers in the Attic.

These books are what I like to call my literary palette cl

Laura Logan is a young girl on the cusp of entering into womanhood. Laura has a twin brother, Cary, who has always been extremely overprotective of her and now, even moreso since Laura is dating a new boy at school, Robert Royce. Laura's family is a church going family who always began their evening meal with her father reading scripture from the Bible. The matriarch of the family is Grandmother Olivia Logan and believes first and foremost that the Logan name always be honoured and that means no ...more

I give this book 3.5 stars. Being the 4th book in the series it was really helpful to learn more about Laura and really everything that took place in her life before the tragedy. I was saddened by how everything happened or her, and continue to still dislike her grandmother Olivia with a passion. It has been a continued hatred for this character as she is "just trying to do what's best for the family" while all of her choices are causing hate, dis-contempt, tragedies, and loss. I think this wome ...more

Laura Logan's story was tragic and beautiful all at the same time. I fell in love with Laura and with Robert Royce, and by the time I finished the book, I felt as if I had known these characters forever. Seeing the Logan family through Laura's eyes instead of Melody's was a beautiful end to the series, as Laura and Melody were not as similar as Sara, Laura's mother believed. Laura's story is one of love and hope and courage, and I found her to be one of V.C. Andrew's most captivating protagonist ...more

Laura has always loved living by the water in Cape Cod but then people at school start telling horrible things about the Logan family.A handsome new fellow named Robert moves to town and chases away some of Laura's blues. But one day laura's grandma says Robert is no longer allowed to come over. Laura has always had a connection with her twin brother Cary, but the town people try to make it into something dirty. Is there more to Cary's devotion?

I WAS SO SAD TO LEARN HOW LAURA AND ROBERT DIED. WHAT RIGHT DID OLIVIA HAVE IN TRYING TO PREVENT THEM FROM DATING. IT WAS NOT HER CALL, O.K I CAN SEE HOW DISAPPOINTED HER FATHER WOULD HAVE BEEN IF HE KNEW THAT LAURA HAD PREMARITAL SEX, BUT CLEARLY SHE DID NOT HAVE AN OLDER WOMEN TO WHOM SHE COULD HAVE GONE TO FOR ADVISE. HER OWN MOTHER WAS TOO SHY TO SPEAK OF ANYTHING THAT PERTAINING TO SEX. SO THE NEXT BEST THING FOR LAURA WAS TO TALK TO BELINDA.
Natalie Gallagher
I had been waiting since Book 1 to find out what really happened to Laura. Based on the previous books Cary seemed to think Laura died hating him but I didn't get that impression. Laura was mad but she had forgiven him. Why didn't Cary tell Melody what he had done? It wasn't even that serious. I didn't think Olivia was believable in the epilogue. She seemed too caring. Basically this book was a disappointment since I enjoyed the others so much.

I have been fascinated by the author that still writes after she died. This is written by a ghost writer commissioned by the family of miss Virginia Andrews. A ghost writer....funny.

although this is the fourth book in a larger series, it can stand on its own. I enjoyed it. A nice read -- nothing that will change the world...and a slightly dissatisfying end really.

The first half was rather boring, but once I got to 1/2 or 2/3 of the book, everything changed and got interesting after the 'tragedy' struck, not to spoil anything, but it's true. I couldn't put the book down. I thought it was going to be a happy ending, but then I read the Epilogue and cried. A lot.
Over all, it was a good book and it is something I will remember.
