Tarnished Gold is the captivating prequel to the bestselling V. C. Andrews© Landry series that began with Ruby and continued with Pearl in the Mist, All That Glitters, and Hidden Jewel. This thrilling new novel takes us back to the Louisiana bayou in the time before Ruby. In a world of wondrous natural beauty, a world of tantalizing dreams and inescapable sorrow, we meet Gabriel Landry, daughter of Catherine and Jack. Growing up in her beloved swamp, Gabriel is supremely happy, despite the ever-widening rift between her Mama and her conniving, whiskey-drinking Daddy. Her classmates tease her, calling her "La Femme Au Naturel," the Nature Girl, because she seems more interested in poling her pirogue through the canals than she is in romance. But Gabriel nurtures her own secret dreams. Then, days before her high school graduation, rich cannery owner Octavious Tate surprises her in a secluded pond and shatters her innocence. Pregnant and desolate, wishing to spare her dear Mama the scandal, Gabriel agrees to a shocking plan that will allow Octavious's frigid wife Gladys to claim the baby as her own and will net Gabriel's furious Daddy a huge payoff. Hiding in a tiny abandoned playroom in the Tate mansion, Gabriel is miserable. Her only visitor is Mama, whose mission as a Traiteur, a Cajun healer, gives her an excuse to treat Gladys Tate's "pregnancy." But nothing is more wrenching than the moment Gladys takes baby Paul away forever. Returning home to the swamp, Gabriel drifts in a world of twilight gloom, brightened only by chance glimpses of her son. But as Jack Landry's reputation as a swamp guide grows, a hunting party brings handsome, gentle Creole millionaire Pierre Dumas to the bayou. Falling desperately in love, Gabriel will not heed the voice warning that their joy may bring her more grief than she can bear....… (mais)

Picked up from a box of donated books; selected on the basis that I'd heard of Ms Andrews' better-knownr 'Flowers in the Attic'' - and here comes the total cheat bit, since it appears numerous of 'her' works were actually written AFTER HER DEATH by one Andrew Neiderman, and published under her name! I have no clue whether this is better or worse than her actual works, but it sure feels like a contravention in trading standards!

Anyway, onto the story which is quite readable- the tale of lovely Gabriel Landry, a teen who could (in lesser hands) have been a 2D cutout character, but was very believable. Living on the bayous of Louisiana with a healer Momma and a drunken Daddy, Gabriel is a child of nature till raped and left pregnant while out poling her pirogue. Daddy has an eye on money to be made from the culprit...and then, in time, Gabriel encounters another wealthy man among the Spanish moss.

Pretty readable. ( )

Such a sad sad tale. I can't even imagine what Gabriel was going through.

Gabriel is my favorite character throughout this whole series.

The end when she dies,
That was the part that really got to me.
It was the most brilliant written part of the whole series. ( )
