Publisher's Summary

The timeless tale continues....

The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves. Now best-selling 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, 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, and like its predecessor, Scarlett will find an eternal place in our hearts.

What a surprise!

I absolutely love Gone With the Wind and I have read the follow up novel, Scarlett by Alexandra Ridley, several times. It was a complete surprise to see it pop up on my recommended list! Best of all it is narrated by Linda Stephens who also did GWtW so the voice, flow, and reading style is seamless between the two. Using a credit for this one was a no brainer!

This Was A Wonderful Book!!!

Linda Stephens did a wonderful job narrating GWTW. I think she did a fabulous job with this one. I'm so glad she was the one that did it! She sounds older but, I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it! Mrs Stephens voice was perfect for the job. She gives Scarlett's character a realistic sound of a mature grown woman, which goes along with the storyline. In this book I learned to appreciate that people can change their "spots" if they really want to. I love that Scarlett goes back to Ireland. Alexandra Ripley made it exciting! I couldn't stop listening to it until the very end!

Great story for a different author

I've read the book multiple time. I was excited when the audiobook came out, and I loved Ms. Stephens' reading of Gone with the Wind. It seems as though the time between the two left something to be desired, and Ms. Stephens made Scarlett sound as if she were 50-60 and it was quite disappointing. I'm sure it couldn't be helped, but it was odd to hear Scarlett's voice in an age range much older than that of a young Southern belle.

Sequel to a Classic

I love this book. I am so happy that audible finally did this one. If you are a fan of Gone with the Wind you will love this book. It shows Scarlett grow up into a strong independent woman. This book shows her in a totally differrent light.

What a perfect sequel!

Thank you for keeping the narrator the same as the audio version of GWTW. Linda Stephens makes these books soooo enjoyable! I felt so lost after the end of GWTW and am so grateful there was a continuation of the story. What a wonderful journey!

Still One of my Favorites of all Time

Listening to the audiobook was the fifth time I’d read Scarlett, and it reminded me again why I love it so much. The author shows how Scarlett becomes more dimensional than in GWTW. You see her grow up before your eyes, even as she continues to blunder her way through life. The unconscionably selfish and unlikeable heroine of GWTW slowly matures through her pain and grows on you until you find yourself rooting for her — not a small feat for any author. Alexandra Ripley found the perfect ending to Scarlett’s journey, and I wish I could have told her so before she passed away.

This was a wonderful story!!!

I loved Gone with the Wind as a movie, then had my mind blown with the Book, then I moved on to this. I shed a tear when I finished it. This was a wonderful story and a tale of two determined people and Scarlett is a woman we all wish we had the courage to be. This book will not disappoint.

That was so good

All lose ends were tied up and there was adventure with familiar and new characters. I love that it's the same narrator as with the first book. It didn't even feel like listening to a sequel, it felt like listening to a continuation.
