    It is 1997. Bart has inherited a considerable amount of the Foxworth fortune after his Grandmother's death. Along with the help of his Great Uncle Joel he has used some of his money to duplicate the Foxworth Hall mansion around its original ruins.Cathy and Chris, now in their early 50s are visiting Bart to celebrate his 25th Birthday.Though Bart is initially pleased to see Cathy, he's long since acknowledged Chris as his father and can barely bring himself to look at him.It soon becomes apparent that the strange, elderly and religious ex-monk, Uncle Joel, has a strong influence over Bart which Cathy finds deeply worrying.Soon Jory and his wife, Melodie, arrive at Foxworth Hall. Both are now famous ballerinas.As soon as Bart sees Melodie he becomes instantly infatuated with her.Finally 16 year old Cindy makes her appearance. She has evolved into a beautiful, sexual, flirtatious young woman.At Bart's birthday party, Jory is persuaded to dance. Tragedy strikes which dramatically changes the family's life and what was supposed to be a brief visit, for everyone, to Foxworth Hall, extends into something much more permanent. For Cathy and Chris it is to be their final home. For them everything has come full circle.This is the fourth novel following the Dollanganger saga.Like the third novel, Bart creates much of the drama in this story. He has grown up to be a very conflicted, violent young man. He cares only for making more money, his own needs and waits until he will have full control over his portion of the Foxworth Fortune.Jory is definitely the shining light within the darkness Bart creates. He truly is an honourable, forgiving and optimistic person, against all odds.Cathy does her best to draw Bart to both her and Chris but is constantly thwarted by Uncle Joel.I think Cathy shows real strength of character in this novel. She's constantly trying to maintain the equilibrium when the siblings are at odds with each other.Chris' love for Cathy remains forever strong and he is her rock.I enjoyed this instalment. And out of the 4 Dollanganger novels I've read, this is by far the most moving and for me concludes their journey.This has been a poignant series for me to read, combining love, drama and death leaving me ultimately feeling melancholy.I'd recommend this to anyone who has followed the family saga and wants to know what happens to the only two remaining Dollanganger's, Cathy and Chris.I don't wish to read the fifth and final book as it is a prequel and I've been lead to believe Virginia Andrews died during the writing of this novel and a ghost writer completed it using her notes.

    I read the books when I was younger and now as an adult must concede that they were poorly written now I've read them again. It's a great read but Bart's sudden redemption and Christophers sudden death seem a bit flimsy to me. Certain things should have been explored more deeply and such as Chris and Bart's relationship. If there be thorns finished when Bart was 11 and he didn't even hate Chris that much. He still called him daddy even.

    Beginning years after If There Be Thorns, Cathy and Chris turn up at the newly built Foxworth Hall and stay until Cathy's son Bart's 25th birthday. However the ghosts of the past keep them imprisoned in the Hall just like when they were the flowers in the attic. Great book and perfect finale.

    Good end to a great series. I could see one of the incidents happening a mile off though!

    Yet anither book that belongs to the set beginning with Flowers in the Attic. Wonderful read

    The story of the late life of Catherine.All Foxworth Hall has always been, is still bound in an intimidating foreboding!
