Fast forward and Christie is getting ready for her 16th birthday celebration. Jimmy and Dawn have a 9 yr. old son, Jefferson. Philip and Betty have twins, a boy and a girl both 12 yrs. old. Everyone is happy and then of course, tragedy hits. The kids come home from school to discover the hotel on fire. Jimmy and Dawn are the only casualties. Philip, Betty and the twins swiftly move into Dawn's house since they lived in the hotel and now it has to be completely rebuilt. Their twins are a bit twisted, they are their only friends and they do everything together, even bathe. Aunt Betty finds this normal. The twins do all they can to get Jefferson into trouble and PHilip has an unhealthy attachment to Christie, until one night he comes into her room and rapes her. She then takes Jefferson and flees to NY to find her real father. He's nothing but a washed up drunk who tells her to go back home and come back when she gets her inheritence. She then calls Gavin, Jimmy's half brother. HE comes to NY and they head to The MEadows. Aunt Charlotte is the only other family she knows, as Fern is nothing but a girl who runs around with any man she can attach herself to. At the Meadows, Charlotte and Luthor take them in and they are happy until Fern arrives and makes their lives hell, once again with her threats to turn them in, even after finding out Christie was raped by Philip. In the end, Jefferson becomes ill as he cuts himself on a rusty nail. Philip is called and comes to take them home and return Gavin to his parents. Once home, Christie is again attacked and runs to her grandmother's husband for help. All turns out well in this book. Finally, a happy ending for the main character. The next book that follows is a prequel that involves the evil grandmother lillian. Looks like it'll be interesting.

    Midnight Whispers isn't a bad book, but it isn't the best in the Cutler series either. In this volume, the perspective changes from Dawn to her daughter Christie who is now sixteen years old. The rest of the Cutler gang are back (sans Grandmother Cutler, Clara Sue and Randolph,) and are in fine form. Well, except for Laura Sue who is suffering from an unnamed aliment that seems suspiciously like Alzheimer's. Philio is still unhappily married to a woman that he has tried to clone into Dawn and no Midnight Whispers isn't a bad book, but it isn't the best in the Cutler series either.

The rest of the Cutler gang are back (sans Grandmother Cutler, Clara Sue and Randolph,) and are in fine form. Well, except for Laura Sue who is suffering from an unnamed aliment that seems suspiciously like Alzheimer's. Philio is still unhappily married to a woman that he has tried to clone into Dawn and now has two bratty kids and Fern has grown up to be a total slut but is anyone really surprised? Christie's love interest comes in the form of Gavin Longchamp, the half-brother of her stepfather. (The incest thing really got done to death in the early books by Neiderman.) Anyway, tragedy befalls the family when a fire breaks out at the hotel, killing Dawn and Jimmy. Christie and her little brother are orphans. Instead of going to live with Bronson (the most sensible adult in the series,) they are forced to stay with Philip and his wife. Christie's short stay with Philip is an unhappy one (I won't go into details but fans of V.C. Andrews novels will know what I mean,) and she and her brother eventually run away. And then the novel pans out telling their adventures, Christie's reunion with her biological father (who is still a prick,) and a visit to the Meadows, where Christie was born. The ending is a bit disappointing, though I'm happy to say that at least one character finally gets their just desserts.

    This book was so much better than the previous one in the series. Christie was no whiner, thank goodness. After Dawn and Jimmy's death, many things happen all at once: Phillip and his family move into Dawn's home, Jefferson is forced to share his room with his absolute monster of a cousin. All of the things that happened to Christie in this book really made me feel for her. Of course, Fern appears in it a few times and once again does nothing to drive the plot.

All of the things that happened to Christie in this book really made me feel for her. Of course, Fern appears in it a few times and once again does nothing to drive the plot. Her existence in this novel served only to disgust me, as her only purpose seems to be to shove sex in the reader's face. However, the reappearance of Charlotte and Luther is rather comforting because not only are they endearing characters, but it was fun to see how they had managed to enjoy their lives after Emily's death. Although things seemed to get worse and worse for Christie after her parents' deaths, she faced down each new crisis and every time she came out on top, I could rejoice with her. The only thing I wished I could have seen more of was the relationship between Christie and Gavin, who is just a really sweet guy. A pretty good read.

    I never finished this book, I read the first couple chapters and found myself disinterested. I do feel like I should pick this one up and the following book just so I can complete the series. Although I'm sure that is going to happen any time soon.

    I'm actually a little bit on the didn't like it side. I found Christy irritating. I wasn't much of a fan of her. I think part of my annoyance also was how this one had many aspects done in other V. C. Andrews books. If I had read this series prior to the other books it may have been different. Does anyone know who is imaged on the Cutler Covers (Insert Cover)? Thanks,

    VC Andrews has always been a favorite of mine since my childhood days. I have read (and re-read) all of her books, and although I am much older now and find that some of her work is better than others, I still enjoy the twists and turns, strangeness and mystery that continues to captivate my interest. (even some of the ghostwriter's work)

    I keep finding that when we get to the daughters story in these family sagas, several of the characters seem to undergo a personality change. Dawn, who hated that her life was a lie and things were kept from her, refuses to talk to Christie about her real father. The twins, who Christie was obsessed with in the last book, have grown up cold and indifferent to her. Aunt Bet, who was sweet in the last book, is now a mean control freak. It doesn't make any sense.

It doesn't make any sense. I read the ‘Casteel' saga not long ago and I've found lots of plot points are the same as the daughter book in that series. There is a big sixteenth birthday party to show you how perfect the main characters life has been, then we have the tragic death of both parents, then she is stuck with a rapey family member. I ended up getting a bit bored during these events as felt like I had read them recently. I would recommend reading Andrew’s family sagas far apart. I liked the part at The Meadows. Aunt Charlotte is lovely. However it did annoy me that she kept telling Christie that her baby was taken away because it had a hoof shaped birthmark. In ‘Secrets Of The Morning' Dawn is repeatedly told it is because the baby had pointed ears. This was another typical Andrew’s book. Sticking to the tried and tested formula. It was okay but nothing stand out

    If you've read the preceding Dawn books, then you're bound to enjoy this, despite some of the sad things in here. The Meadows - previously highlighted in 'Secrets of the Morning', come into play here, this time as a refuge instead of a prison for poor Christie, Dawn's daughter. I have to say though that I was disappointed with something that happened near the beginning of this book. it felt like Neiderman was just repeating himself after writing Gates of Paradise because Christie loses her parent If you've read the preceding Dawn books, then you're bound to enjoy this, despite some of the sad things in here.

I have to say though that I was disappointed with something that happened near the beginning of this book. it felt like Neiderman was just repeating himself after writing Gates of Paradise because Christie loses her parents like Annie does, but at least the rest of the story is interesting enough to make up for it. Overall, this series reflects the best of Neiderman's efforts to ghostwrite for VC Andrews, and I enjoyed it a lot, though I didn't feel that this book was quite up to par as the first three in this series.

    Christie Longchamp had a happy life with her parents, Dawn and Jimmy, her brother, Jefferson, and even her Uncle Philip, Aunt Bet, and cousins. She even tolerates her rebellious, trouble-making Aunt Fern. Shortly after her sixteenth birthday, tragedy strikes and turns her world upside-down. No one will listen to her, forcing her to run from her family's curse . . . I try to write these reviews so I won't give too much away. ;-) Anyways it was a good book.

Gavin is also awesome ;-) Uncle Philip, Aunt Bet, and the twins are terrible as well as Aunt Fern.

    When I read these novels back in the day I would have given them 3-3.5 STARS and now would say about one Star I started reading VC Andrews books in the 1991 and stopped about 2003. I have read: -Dollanganger Series -Casteel Series -Cutler Series -Landry Series -Logan Series -Orphans Series -Wildflowers Series -Hudson Series -Shooting Stars Series -DeBeers Series -Broken Wings Series As a preteen reading these novels was a rebellion and the gothic theme also seemed cool.

    I bought this book at the thrift store and I didn't know I was a series book. Much less the 4th in a series. But I found I could understand what was going on in this book without reading the others. I liked his book a lot. I could connect with the main character well. It was a very well paced book. I never felt like some parts were more interesting then others. It kept me wanting more. To be honest I have no interest in reading the other books in this series, this one was enough.

    WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE BOOK A 5 STAR RATING IF PHILIP WOULD HAVE SUFFERED. AS WELL AS HIS WIFE. I KNOW IT IS MAINLY HIS FAULT IN TRYING TO HAVE HIS WIFE TURN INTO A DAWN CLONE, BUT SHE WAS SO MEAN TWARDS CHRISTIE. BY THE TIME I HAD READ THIS BOOK I WAS HOPING THAT V.C ANDREWS (OR WHOM EVER TOOK OVER AFTER SHE DIED) THAT SHE WOULD STOP HAVING THE CHARACTERS THAT ARE RELATED FROM FALLING IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER.

    "As I grew older, I came to realize that we couldn't command the sun and the stars to appear, but we could feel the sun's warmth ad be dazzled by the night sky and that was magic enough. I also understood that each day of our lives, some new part of us was born and some old part of us died."

    The 4th book in the series and I actually preferred this one to the previous one. I've only given the book 3 stars though because even though I liked it, it's the same old thing and I'm getting bored with it. Always a bit of incest going on!!
