    a nice place to get insight into the life of Scarlett after the war.
    BUT, this book needed some SERIOUS editing; it had incomplete sentences, sentences missing vital words and wrong words used.

    A sequal to Gone With the Wind, unauthorized. Was an interesting concept.

    This book has an interesting concept. It needed better editing. As a sequal to Gone with the Wind, it had a lot to live up to and expectations are going to be high. It held my interest, but I think the characters seemed shallow and it was crisis after crisis. I am well aware of the hardships occuring after the civil war, but surely a few good things happened during this time frame. This 289 page, free novel, left many of the sub plots created by the author, unanswered. No cursing. Mild referrals to sex, child abuse and neglect, some religion. Ages 14 and up would find this historical novel intetesting. It is told from the male point of view instead of the feminine which is unusual.

    Please don't waste your time on this book. So crazy to think a child could clear the back 40!!!! This is one of the worst books I have ever tried to read. So many stupid things going on, nothing like the story of "Gone With The Wind" !!!!!

    Wade?

    Unless you read Gone with the Wind, you will have no idea who Wade is and how he is involved in the story. This book was interesting to read. Gave a good idea regarding how this young man may have survived being Scarlett's son.

    Like other reviewers, I think editing should have been done but I was able to get through it without difficulty. If you know it is needful of editing, then just read it a bit closer.

    This is a good book, and I liked this book. I would have given it a higher rating, but all the writing errors were annoying. Did the author not have anyone proof read it? I would have like to seen more happy times for Wade, instead of all the struggle and sadness. Some of the sub plots were left unfinished.

    Couldn't quit reading!

    Amazing writing from an amazing author. This book picked up right where Scarlet ended and the story was great. So glad to read a book that had a well planned plot for each character and did the love of Gone With the Wind and Scarlet justice. Also glad that someone didn't forget about Wade! ;)

    Loved it!

    The only comment I have is that I would like to have heard the story about what happened in the last 20 years before Scarlett came back to Tara.

    Good read

    Gone With the Wind has been a favorite of mine since I was a teenager. I have read with interest all the sequel books that have come out. I really enjoyed reading Wade's story. I feel this author captured the feelings of an abandoned child quite well. Sadly, Wade's tragedy's closely followed his mothers. However, he managed to deal with them in a more honorable fashion. Was he able to do this because he had more resourcless available to him, land a better support system? While Wade's tragedy's were many, he did not have the major obstacles in his way that his mother faced, and he also had the benefit of a strong circle of loving support that Scarlett lacked. All in all this was a good sequel. I would love to see others detailing Scarlett's other two children Ella and Cat. Even though Scarlett wasn't the best mother, she did pass her stubborn will and steel backbone onto her children.
