Their captivity in their grandparents' attic is finally over.But revenge is a torment they cannot escape... The Dollanganger children are trying to rebuild their lives after suffocating for so long in the terrifying darkness of the attic. The siblings must put aside their past and learn to love and dream again, in order to find their rightful place in the world. Still, dreams of happiness and success are easily crowded out by thoughts of vengeance. Cathy is determined to make those responsible for destroying their childhood pay, from the grandmother who tormented them to the mother who abandoned them.
