The Second novel in the Exciting new V.C. Andrews series: a young girl growing up on the Louisiana bayou discovers she has another family

Even after living there for a year, 16-year-old Ruby Dumas still wonders at the splendor of her father’s New Orleans mansion and rejoices in the warmth of his love. But true happiness eludes her, for Ruby must carefully avoid a venomous enemy: her stepmother, who cringes and sneers at Ruby’s backwater upbringing. And Ruby’s every effort to befriend her crippled twin sister, Gisselle, is answered with bitterness.

All That Glitters copyright 1995

The third spellbinding novel in the new V.C.Andrews series that began with Ruby and continued with Pearl In the Mist the story that brought to light the vile act of treachery that drove innocent young Ruby Landry away from the Dumas mansion in New Orleans. Back in her beloved Louisiana bayou, Ruby hopes against hope that the deep shadows of the Spanish moss will blot out forever her family’s tainted legacy, and let her begin anew.

Living again in a humble shack, Ruby is determined to make a secure and happy home for her precious infant daughter, Pearl. Aided by the thoughtful gifts and warm encouragement of Paul Tate her first love, whom she was forced to abandon she ekes out a living selling her handicrafts. Paul has become a man of unbelievable wealth, and when he whisks her into his grand house, complete with servants, an inspiring artist’s studio for Ruby, and a sparkling nursery for Pearl, it seems their future is assured. As mistress of Cypress Woods, Ruby can forget her horrid past, even the shocking reason she and Paul must wed in a secret ceremony and remain husband and wife in name alone. But the thick, expensive walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the endless hum of the oil rigs that produce Paul’s fortune or the terrible memories that have woven their strands over the bayou and cast a dark web over her destiny. Every cold glance of Paul’s possessive mother, Gladys, reminds Ruby of the secret she must keep to five Pearl a loving father. And her venomous twin sister, Gisselle, arrives to taunt her with news of Beau Andreas, the true father Pearl has never met, and the only man Ruby will ever long for with all her body and soul.
Desperate to find the complete, fulfilling life she craves, Ruby makes the only choice her heart can bear. But the precarious new existence she must build away from her beloved bayou is a flimsy shanty to hope that the first flood washes away. Only when the storm exposes the very blackest evils of the past will she glimpse the rainbow’s fragile promise, a morning of sunshine and laughter with a family of her own.
