Ideal to be read and treasured, it makes for a perfect addition to any library. It's April 1861. Georgia, southern United States. Scarlet O'Hara-the vivacious, narcissistic and pampered daughter of a plantation owner in Atlanta-in a fit of choleric contempt over rejection by her desired man, Ashley Wilkes, hurls a figurine against the wall. And behind the depths of the sofa, Rhett Butler is woken up from his nap. "You're no gentleman, " fires the southern belle. "And you're no lady!" the rogue fires back. Scarlet, for vengeance, accepts the marriage proposal from Charles Hamilton-Ashley Wilke's brand new brother-in-law. But at the outbreak of the American Civil War he joins the army and dies of pneumonia followed by measles, a not-so-gallantry death. Through wiles and widowhood, Scarlet manages to keep her independence and becomes an astute business woman. Rhett Butler-the dark, flashy and scandalous visitor from Charleston-who is a professional gambler and blockade runner, is enamoured by her survival instincts.
