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.

A little disappointed but overall a good listen...

I was very excited to find that Linda Stephens had narrated Scarlett. I absolutely love her voice in the narration of GWTW. So much in fact that I listen to it every year. Unfortunately, she does not sound the same at all for this book. She sounds much older and none of the characters have the same voice as in GWTW. That said, it was still enjoyable to listen to once I got over the fact that it just did not sound the same. And of course the book itself is wonderful.

Frankly my dear, one of the best damned books!

In all the books I've read over my lifetime, this ranks among the top two. It was a pleasure to hear the narrated version and picture the vivid scenes with the faces of Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable. a truly epic ending befitting the original story and film.

Spoiler alert

If you want to listen to a tediously long book about a spoiled ex Southern belle who whines about everything but still gets her rich man (and keeps her own money), this is the book for you. But be warned — the accent might make your teeth clench, and the flowery “be-still-my-heart!” writing makes the whole thing seem sooo much longer. I finished the book from curiosity because I couldn’t remember the plot details from years ago, but I rolled my eyes countless times. Now that I remember why I gave my hard copy away, I’ll probably return the audio. But I’ll think about that tomorrow etc etc etc lol

emotional

it is a good sequel for Gone With the Wind however it is very emotional and very stressful. I almost stopped listening to or three times because the amount of stress they put on the characters.

love scarlett

I fell in live with the character of Scarlett when I was a young girl and I love this book. It's long, but so detailed and is always consistent with the Gone with the wind story and characters. I feel like I just lost a friend with the finishing if this story...a sign of great writing for sure.
