THE PHENOMENAL #1 BESTSELLING SEQUEL TO MARGARET MITCHELL'S GONE WITH THE WIND

"Alexandra Ripley is true to Scarlett's spirit and to Rhett's. Her sense of Mitchell's style is right on target." - Chicago Tribune

The timeless tale continues... The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Gone With the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves. Now 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 . Like its predecessor, Scarlett will find an eternal place in our hearts.

Ripley does a fine job of, on the one hand, closely aligning her writing style (language, pacing, and plot devices) to Mitchell's, and describing a world that is seamlessly Mitchell's, and on the other hand, developing the characters in ways that make perfect sense because of their new circumstances. (Not that Scarlett and Rhett don't both resist developing, tooth and claw!) I was delighted to read more of Scarlett's story and to watch her grow up at long last. An excellent sequel.

I gave this a shot, but the characters didn't feel like I thought they should. I think Mitchell's story probably should have been left to stand alone.
