MY MOTHER HAD LOOKED INTO THE FACE OF EVIL SO MANY TIMES SHE
KNEW WHAT IT WAS. IT WAS ME. I WAS BORN WITHOUT A SOUL. . . .
An edgy new novel from the author who shocked a generation
with her groundbreaking Flowers in the Attic saga, The
Unwelcomed Child is V.C. Andrews at her surprising, sensual,
and unforgettable best.
Elle Edwards grew up believing that because of her motherâ€™s
sinful ways she was born without a soul, and thatâ€™s why she
was abandoned to the care of Grandmother Myra and
Grandfather Prescott. Raised in a virtual prison to ensure
that her inherent evil will not taint her vigilant
guardians, Elleâ€™s days are occupied with homeschooling,
strict religious studies, and vigorous housekeeping in the
devout coupleâ€™s upstate New York home. Elle knows
practically nothing of the outside world, even as she
emerges as a young woman with impressive artistic talent.
Myraâ€™s strict prohibitions are immovable, but Prescott
acknowledges Elleâ€™s special gifts, and gradually persuades
Myra to allow the girl some time outdoors to sketch from
nature. But when she makes a secret, forbidden connection to
vacationers at the nearby lakeâ€”a handsome boy and his
precocious twin sisterâ€”Elleâ€™s world will shatter as her past
meets her present.
Will learning the truth about her mother send her plummeting
to hell? Maybe some discoveries are forbidden for a reason .
. . and maybe Elle will wish she never knew why she has
always been The Unwelcomed Child.
