A major Lifetime movie event—the novel that captured the world's imagination and earned V.C. Andrews a fiercely devoted fanbase. Book One of the Dollanganger Family series.
At the top of the stairs there are four secrets hidden. Blond, beautiful, innocent, and struggling to stay alive…
They were a perfect family, golden and carefree—until a heartbreaking tragedy shattered their happiness. Now, for the sake of an inheritance that will ensure their future, the children must be hidden away out of sight, as if they never existed. Kept on the top floor of their grandmother’s vast mansion, their loving mother assures them it will be just for a little while. But as brutal days swell into agonizing months and years, Cathy, Chris, and twins Cory and Carrie realize their survival is at the mercy of their cruel and superstitious grandmother…and this cramped and helpless world may be the only one they ever know.
Book One of the Dollanganger series, followed by Petals in the Wind, If There be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, and Garden of Shadows.
I read this in the early 90's and has always been one of my favourite books, and very dear to me. The story it is self, takes you on a journey through the eyes of children, who mature so rapidly, due to their circumstances. It's a great read as well as the follow ups.

The best book I've ever read, looking forward to reading the next.......
A great story that really gets you into the characters. You feel desperately for the children. You want to shout out not to be so trusting but understand why they do. It's a story of greed, trust, love, survival and hope. I really recommend this book.
