In her music, she found sweet salvation....

Honey grew up on a farm under her strict, fanatically religious grandfather's disapproving eye. To him, everything is a sin -- from her natural-born talent for the violin to her innocent interest in boys and dating -- and life is a treacherous path to be walked in fear. When Honey is paired for music practice with a brilliant pi

Damn you, V.C. Andrews ghost writer! Your books make me cringe when I compare them to the ones the actual V.C Andrews wrote before she died.

The ghost writer, Andrew Neiderman, just uses the same cliches over and over, thinking these cliches will make his books similar to the original V.C. Here are his most loved cliches:

1) Cheesy character names. In this book, the M.C is named Honey. Neiderman has been guilty of using every cheesy, lame name that's ever existed, yet he keeps finding more. Names

Inhalt:

Honey wächst auf einer Farm in Ohio auf. Ihre Mutter, eine Osteuropäerin, kam als junge Frau auf das Land, um einen der Söhne von Grandad Forman zu heiraten. Viele Familiengeheimnisse und ein wahnsinniger Grandad lassen Honey nicht in Ruhe…

Schreib-/Erzählstil:

Die Charaktere harmonieren und wirken alle auf mit ihrer Weise einen Einfluss auf Honey, die sich zwischen den Geschichten hin- und hergerissen fühlt. Die Musik steht natürlich – wie schon in den Vorgängern des Auftakts der Shooting

This novel was the biggest success out of all four mini-novels. The characters had MUCH more substance to them than any of the others. AND the mother wasn't a self-centered troll of a person. This seemed to be more like the old school VC Andrews and I didn't have to force myself to keep reading like the other novels. This had more plot than the others as well, I just feel like more care was taken when writing this novel. But there was something I noticed when Honey went for private music lessons ...more

I have always found it interesting, amusing and sometimes annoying, what people's interpretation of what someone with the name Honey should be like, look like, act like.
I found this book a boring read. It is one of the most depressing, and disapointing books I've ever read. It's part four of a five book series, I think. I have no idea what the series is about. The only reason I read this one is because of the name- I thought maybe a character with my name might be interesting. I was wrong. This

The fourth book in the Shooting Stars series. Honey Forman lives on the family owned farm with her grandfather, father, mother, Uncle Peter and Uncle Simon. Her grandfather is a a bitter, strict, fanatically religious man who becomes even more overbearing when a tragedy strikes the family. The only solace Honey finds is in playing her violin, despite the disapproval of her grandfather. Her music instructor pairs her up for practice with Chandler Maxwell, a piano player who comes from a well to d ...more

It's a V.C. Andrews franchise piece. There's not much else I can say. It's part 4 of a 5-book series of sorts. The first four (also available in an omnibus edition) introduce the brilliantly talented girls who are going to be meeting each other in book 5. It is what it is. It didn't suck, but reading the first 4 didn't make me ready to run right out and get the 5th either. I mean, sweet girls, but I'm not exactly invested. These books are short, so they are good for those "I can't decide what to ...more

The same typical theme of religious fanaticism included, which kind of made me yawn. Also, the big reveal at the end of the book wasn't really too much of a surprise. I have read books before, and can see a plot twist a mile away. Maybe a teen might have been fooled by something like that. Oh well, at least I can say that it was short.

Best of the series, not that that is saying much! I love those small-town-everything-is-a-sin tales.

Out of all the girls i read about it this serious Honey was my favorite. I think she was my favorite because she is the most real of them all.

I didn't think it could possibly get worse after Rose, but I was wrong. All the characters in here are so flat and one-dimensional that it's hard to care for any of them, even the poor nearly-retarded uncle. The family revelation in this book that comes near the end is nothing more than yawn-inspiring. Grandpa Forman did what? Oh, REALLY? Too bad that I'm bored, otherwise I might care. I found each chapter a chore to plod through, honestly. I'm sad that the man who penned the enjoyable Cutler fa ...more

VC Andrews has always been a favorite of mine since my childhood days. I have read (and re-read) all of her books, and although I am much older now and find that some of her work is better than others, I still enjoy the twists and turns, strangeness and mystery that continues to captivate my interest.
With that being said - it might also explain why I find the ghostwriter's quality of work lacking and less memorable than Andrews true writing, especially with the newer, more modern series.
