so Scarlet O'Hara was not an original character!

Great story! Great author! Would love to see more stories by same! The author treated slavery in a very honest way. Questioning it, while at the same time showing the realities of it. Could make a great movie, if tastefully treated with the input of the black community. Loved the personalities in this book!

the reader changes around the 20th chapter and is horrible.

It begins like a very nice story and gives you hope of an enjoyable plot... But as IT develops, IT frustrate you more and more. It seems like The autor enjoys immensely to tourment The good characters , along with The reader,. It plays with The characters like they are some stupid puppets. Not only gives Free hand to The bad ones to do their worst, but makes even The Providence to be on their part. I believe The bad end of the evil ones does not compensate for all The suffering of the good ones. In a nutshell : IT is highly frustraing !

Now I know where soap operas source their scripts! I was delighted discover it was made into a film in 1914. Good story though not really to my taste.
