Scarlett Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Scarlett

This book, the sequel to Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With the Wind" follows Scarlett in her attempt to win back the love and affection of Rhett. We follow Scarlett from Atlanta to Charleston, where she lives with Rhett's mother, and visits her aunts. She then goes to Savannah and meets some family members she has never met before. Then, with them, she goes to Ireland to discover her heritage. For the rest of the book, Scarlett struggles with loss, fear, and new discoveries about herself. Although, in itself, this is a very good book, compared to Gone With the Wind, it just doesn't quite measure up.

The review of this Book prepared by Corrie Andrianakos

The sequel to Gone with the Wind takes place over seven years, from the time of Melanie's funeral to Scarlett's daring escape during the Irish Rebellion. This book has a lot of plot twists and turns, and Scarlett's dreams finally come true- when she realizes what they are.
