The timeless tale continues. The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Margaret Mitchells Gone With the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves.

Now bestselling 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,...

Ripley has understandable trouble treating him like the rake he used to be. While in Ireland, Scarlett receives the news that Rhett has filed for divorce.

If stalling tactics like these appear desperate, they are.

And the once-dignified Ashley Wilkes has emitted "the cry of a soul in torment, filled with loneliness and fear" by page 7. As the clash between the two factions seems inevitable, Scarlett raises her daughter and wars with her abiding love for Rhett. Want to keep up with breaking news?

A brief sexual encounter after the pair almost drowns leaves Scarlett pregnant. As further evidence that "Scarlett" is the product of an imagination quite unlike the one that made these characters famous, there are the frequent ways in which "terror plucked at her taut nerves" or "jagged laughter tore at her throat. Rhett and Scarlett escape the fighting and Scarlett reveals to Rhett that he has a daughter.

Rhett and Scarlett escape the fighting and Scarlett reveals to Rhett that he has a daughter. Scarlett and Rhett agree that they will leave Ireland and Rhett explains to Scarlett that she has no need of a home because she belongs with him. As Gothic romances go, Scarlett is not a bad read.
