Throwback Thursday: Heaven by V.C. Andrews

Throwback Thursday is weekly meme hosted by Jenny from Take Me Away.

Heaven (Casteel, #1)

Author:  V.C. Andrews
Publisher:  Pocket
Publish Date:  November 1st 1990

From Goodreads:

Heaven Leigh Casteel was the prettiest, smartest girl in the backwoods, despite her ragged clothes and dirty face...despite a father meaner than ten vipers...despite her weary stepmother, who worked her like a mule. For her brother Tom and the little ones, Heaven clung to her pride and her hopes. Someday they'd get away and show the world that they were decent, fine and talented — worthy of love and respect.

Then Heaven's stepmother ran off, and her wicked, greedy father had a scheme — a vicious scheme that threatened to destroy the precious dream of Heaven and the children forever!


I read Heaven and the whole Casteel series when I was still in High School.  V.C. Andrew books were my stay up all night to read books back then.  I loved the turns, twists, and straight up craziness of the world she created.

  1. What a great Throw Back Thursday and a trip down memory lane. I discovered V.C. Andrews books back when I was 15 years old and I haven't looked back, since. Only for me, it all started with my favorite book by her of all time - My Sweet Audrina - and Flowers In The Attic, the first in the Dollenganger series. I've read the Cutler series and have really enjoyed and I've read the Casteel series. Pretty much all of V.C. Andrews books that she wrote herself. :)
