Author V.C. Andrews, who was born on this day in 1923, became famous for her novel Flowers in the Attic.

And readers have speculated for years that parts of the novel were influenced by Andrews's real life.

According to a recent biography of her, they might not be wrong.

Literary Hub has an excerpt from The Woman Beyond the Attic by Andrew Neiderman that addresses Andrews's mysterious medical conditions and how they might tie into Flowers.
