Why did I love this book?
Gone With the Wind is my favorite novel. Mitchell brings her characters and the event of the Civil War alive. This taught me more about the Civil War than any historical book. It begins at a time before the war, takes the reader through the destruction and death during the war, and brings the reader to the devastation to the South after the war. Gone With the Wind has something for everyone: romance, history, believable characters, and a great story. After almost 90 years, the book is still a great read!
