Much of the narrative is painful to hear. However, since this is the "true" story it did occur. It got a little much and I'm not one to demand sweetness from all books. It does give insight as to how a society can create criminals.
As a reader of the original book, the later attempt, Scarlett, still left me disappointed. I think this book gets it right and Margaret Mitchell would approve.
If you like a story that will cast a spell and stay with you, then this is one. The writing is clear and the characters are wonderfully written.
