Whitefern (Audrina #2) by V.C. Andrews

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…

Audrina is married to Arden. When her father dies she must take care of the mansion “Whitefern”, the brokerage firm, and her sister Sylvia, who is special. Her father changed his Will and left things to Audrina and not Arden. Is there a reason? What does Audrina not know?

Sylvia wants to be in the rocking chair. This rocking chair brings flashbacks to Audrina of how her childhood was. It is said that the rocking chair is a way for Audrina and Sylvia to speak to their deceased father.

Can she handle the mansion as well as her past while taking care of the mansion and brokerage firm? Audrina must find a way to overcome her past and the secrets of the mansion that were dormant for some time. She has to find a way to deal with reality instead of letting the past take over the present time.

When things start to change Audrina must find the truth of the situation and what actually happened and how it happened. Will she be too late? Will she accept the reality?

This was a good read, a real page turner. There are twists and turns along the way. Just when I thought I had it figured out and what was going on there was sure to be another twist. A very well written book.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
