The timeless tale continues....
The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves. Now best-selling writer Alexandra Ripley brings us back to Tara and reintroduces us to the characters we remember so well: Rhett, Ashley, Mammy, Suellen, Aunt Pittypat, and, of course, Scarlett.
As the classic story, first told over half a century ago, moves forward, the greatest love affair in all fiction is reignited; amidst heartbreak and joy, the endless, consuming passion between Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler reaches its startling culmination.
Rich with surprises at every turn and new emotional, breathtaking adventures, Scarlett satisfies our longing to reenter the world of Gone with the Wind, and like its predecessor, Scarlett will find an eternal place in our hearts.

I cried. I laughed. I bit my nail to the quick and I truly could not put it down. I personally got an immense amount of satisfaction in seeing these characters I hold so near and dear to my heart evolve and become deeper and more layered and I appreciate that she chose to pick up the story's timeline right where the original book left off, it helped close the gap between the two books and made you really feel as though one person had written both. I won't ruin the story with spoilers but I will say that the story takes Scarlett and Rhett to places physically and emotionally that you'd never expect and although the old south will always be a huge part of this story no matter who is writing it, Ms. Ripley also manages to take these characters you love so much to new heights and better places. It will never be the original and it isn't meant to be, it's meant to continue the story as if Margaret Mitchell was writing it herself and she accomplished that and so much more.
This is a fantastic read, easily the best book I've read in years. I'm only sorry it took me so long to finally give it a chance.
I find that my deep love for the world of Gone with the Wind is shared with tons of people and many people grew up with it on their coffee tables just as I did. If that's the case and you too don't believe this sequel will do it justice I'm here to tell you, it goes above and beyond expectations. If you've ever wished the story of Scarlett and Rhett had continued, please read this. It's absolutely wonderful. Happy Reading!
This book was better than the original......there, I said it. I loved this continuation, I savored it and slowed my pace towards the end because I didn't want it to be over. I'm tempted to start it again right now, it's that good. The author captured Scarlett and Rhett amazingly well, and her talent for sweeping epic tales is impressive. The globe trotting adventures were on point too! This will be a novel that I will read over and over throughout my life. I got swept up in it and found myself thinking about it throughout the day. I just can't say enough praise!!
Scarlett goes from one misunderstanding to another as she travels to Tara, Charleston, Savannah, and Ireland. She schemes and schemes to get Rhett back but you must read until the final 10 pages to see what happens with that.
You'll meet lots of new characters including two grandparents. Also, you'll meet Cat, her daughter. She is close to her but not so much her other two kids Wade and Ella. You'll meet Rhett's family and Scarlett's three surviving relatives on her mother's side, and also her huge Irish family from her Dad.
The book goes from one direction to another. Each city she is in could be its own book, but she leaves and a new story is started in another city. Scarlett is a formidable business woman but clueless when it comes to sex and certain life customs.
This novel is different from the 1994 miniseries.
ANYWAY, one of the most fascinating parts of "Scarlett " was learning about how a home functions, ; the etiquette and social 'rules' of the time, and an interpretation of life in Atlanta after those 'dawned Yankees' were perceived by survivors of the war.

Does Scarlett get her man, well you'll have to read it to find out, but a little tip DO NOT SKIP TO THE LAST PAGE, you will regret t doing that.
Scarlett continues her journey into a new land and culture and come out holding her head high.
Very good reading
