In Scarlett, there are many balls to attend and adventures all along the way. There is also a great deal of information about the South and Ireland in those times which makes for fascinating reading.
This sequel to Gone with the Wind is certainly promising and written in a similar vein as the original.
It takes you from where Gone with the wind left readers. As Scarlett tries to salvage her marriage with Rhett Butler she heads to Atlanta, Georgia and Savannah. She rouses herself from alcoholism and meets Rhett Butler’s mother. She also meets her distant relatives and heads to Ireland.
There are many balls to attend and adventures all along the way. There is also a great deal of information about the South and Ireland in those times which makes for fascinating reading.
But the fact that Scarlett tries so hard to seem likeable to everyone and contemplates giving up her business countless times for domesticity makes her seem a shadow of her Gone with the wind days.
The story does tend to lag as we are introduced to a bevy of characters who are part of her extended family. All in all it’s for die hard fans only.
