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

I started reading VC Andrews books in the 1991 and stopped about 2003.

I have read:
-Dollanganger Series
-Casteel Series
-Cutler Series
-Landry Series
-Logan Series
-Orphans Series
-Wildflowers Series
-Hudson Series
-Shooting Stars Series
-DeBeers Series
-Broken Wings Series

As a preteen reading these novels was a rebellion and the gothic theme also seemed cool. I stopped reading this author because
I read this book in about a week. It quickly changed my view of Willow. I felt sorry for Hannah her daughter from Thatcher Eaton. She had so many issues just coming into the world not being truly excepted by any of the Eatons. And then having a new baby brother arriving from her mother (Willow) and her step-father Miguel. How could a girl not feel out of place? Her mother was so strong in the other two novels of this series. Where did her courage go? She seems as weak and fragile as Bunny Eaton. ...more

This book wasn't in my favorite series of stories. It seems this series took the longest to read because it just wasn't that interesting.

This book picks up with Willow and her husband Miguel, and Willow's 15 yr old daughter Hannah. The book is from Hannah's point of view as her mother is busy working as a psychologist, her step-father is busy teaching at a university, her bio dad is remarried, has teenaged twin boys who are completely spoiled and out of hand. She doesn't have much to do w/ her b

Where the Dollanganger, Casteel, Cutler, Landry, and Logan series paid a lot of attention to family secrets and twists and turns, the DeBeers series is severely lacking, and this book is a pale imitation of the good books that Neiderman started out with when he ghostwrote for VCA. The characters are flat and two-dimensional, and the storyline is predictable.

Willow started out as a decent character in the first book, but fell apart in the second book to become a weakling. In this book, the weakne
This is Hannah Eaton's story for the most part. She is the main character. Hannah attends school at a Palm Beach County Magnet school for the performing arts located downtown West Palm Beach where, she studies music. (this is a real school) Hannah frequently visits Uncle Linden at the residency where he lives. She insists to Willow that she allow Uncle Linden to live at Joya del Mar. Willow of course refuses citing the problems he had when he lived here before.

(view spoiler)
A little predictable, not as strong as other VC Andrew's work. What happened to the strong, capable Willow? She was portrayed like just another weak, selfish Palm Beach character in this. I thought things were getting better once they did the whole running away thing but then we were expected to then get to know a whole different family with weird dramas of their own. I was more interested in what was going on with the main characters, although I can see how it would cause Hannah to make the dec ...more

The pics when you open the books, with this one, just what's going on there? Yeah these books are creepy. Poor Hannah. Yeah these weird. Near the end especially. Talk about weird families. But the one from flowers in the attic is even weirder.
one of the best, most loved series/authors of all time. V.C. Andrews books are something so easily recognizable and new books continue to evolve to go with the times and bring in a whole new generation of loving readers

v.c. andrews books are all absolutely amazing and very easily distinguishable from any other authors. i love the darkeness, secrets, lies, very addicting, i have almost every single book!
Chelsea Gouin
Willow obviously had PTSD in this one, and after everything she went through, who could blame her? Told through her daughter's point of view, Twisted Roots takes place 16 years after the events of Wicked Forest. It didn't have the drama I was used to in the other VC Andrews books. It wasn't terrible, but really didn't live up to the hype the first two books created. Hannah was whiny, and frequently admitted it, Heyden was predictable, and the evil twins didn't get the spotlight they probably des ...more

Virginia andrews books are amazing
Although this series is most certainly Andrews/Neidermans weakest Ive read so far, I found this book to be better than Willow and Wicked Forest. It was generally more entertaining, where with the first two books I had to force myself to keep reading at some points. I did not have to do that with this one, and I was entranced the whole second half of the book and read it in just a few hours.

I didn't like this book as much as the 1st two in the series. I can't work out why her fathers family hate her so much or why Thatcher bothers with her when his whole family think she's not his and he clearly isn't that interested anyway.

I don't like how Willow comes across as a really bad mother in this. She doesn't seem to care much for Hannah.
Now this was a very very good book. iread the other two books and iwas transfixed and now that i read this book i understand more of what happened to Willo. All three books in the series are wonderful and they are awsome.

A girl trying to figure out what she is supposed to do and figuring out who she really is.
I really liked this series in the beginning, but it started to go downhill a little bit and the characters weren't as realistic as Andrews' characters usually are. Still a decent series that follows the same basic structure of the V.C. Andrews series collections.
Just love these VC Andrews books. Hannah takes off with her boyfriend and mentally ill uncle. She comes back to make up with her mother. Can't wait to see what happens next. Such a soap opera.
A brilliant book, cleverly tied in to the previous two in the series and continues with Willow's daughter, a well crafted sequel.

Recommends it for: V. C. Andrews Fans.
Recommended to Dawn by: I read all of V. C. Andrews books.
This was the third book in the Willow series. It was a good series, but not my favorite by this author.
From Hannah Eaton's POV, Willow's daughter. A little predictable, but still fun to read!
Mary Emily
I enjoyed the story being told by Hannah...but the editing is again poor.
Last in the DeBeers series. This was my least favorite book of the series.
Racing through on to book number 4 on the De Beers family saga.
V.C. Andrew books has always been one of my little guilty pleasures!
It WAS pretty twisted!
