These have a bit more family drama in them:
The Fires of July (Mannings, #1) by Sharon Salvato The Fires of July and its sequel The Drums of December (Mannings, #2) by Sharon Salvato The Drums of December

Even though Gone With The wind was a "stand-alone" novel,it has a sequel but by a different author.
So I will place in this thread.
Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell Gone With the Wind and the sequel Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley Scarlett
Some feel it should have been left alone.

I read enough reviews of Scarlet that I decided to pass. I did try the latest GWTW spin off Rhett Butler's People, but it flew around halfway through. Awful. Bad, unbelievably bad.

I read Scarlet..it was..ok. Could have been worse, sometimes you just cant further a 1st book when its a "class" in its own.

I havent read this one yet Joeera..is the story set in the south? I have heard though that "Mrs. deWinter" is really bad. Not always a good thing to try an follow up a classic by another author.

It doesn't appear that both of these book are set in the US South during the time period that has been set for this group. Sorry Joeera.
