Gone With the WindGone with the wind is one of best novel I have ever read. It is also in my opinion the greatest love story ever written. It is set during the American civil war in which the Southern states (the Confederacy) tried to free themselves from the northern states.The main character of this story was the beautiful Scarlett O'Hara. Her father, Gerald O'Hara was an old Irishman who owned a big cotton plantation named Tara. He also owned many slaves who worked for him. Scarlett's mother was Ellen O'Hara and she was one of the kindest and most respected ladies in the county. All her life, Scarlett O'Hara wanted to be like her mother Ellen. The O'Haras neighbors included the Wilkeses, the Tarletons, and the Calverts.As Scarlett was the most beautiful girl in the whole county, she had many more beaus than any other girl in the county. Almost all the boys in the county were in love with her. But the Tarleton twins, whom Scarlett enjoyed spending time with, were madly and deeply in love with her. The only problem though was that Scarlett didn't love them. Instead she was madly in love with Ashley Wilkes, her neighbor. She believed that Ashley Wilkes and her were meant to be together and neither the coming civil war nor the Tarleton twins were going to change that.But then, Scarlett learned from the twins that the love of her life Ashley was going to marry his cousin Melanie Hamilton. She could hardly believe this and deep depression abruptly took the better part of her. Luckily, the Wilkeses organized a barbecue in which they were going to announce Ashley Wilkes engagement to his cousin. Scarlett planned to tell Ashley that she loved him and he would propose to her and forget all about his cousin Melanie and then maybe they would elope.But at the Wilkes' barbecue, her plan didn't succeed. Ashley told her that he loved his cousin Melanie because they were alike blood wise and in many other ways. Now, they decided to do their secret talk in the library since they didn't want to be heard by others. After they had finished their talk Ashley had left, and Scarlett started crying. Then from the back of the library, a man appeared, with an evil smile on his face. Scarlett knew that he had been listening to their conversation. His name was Rhett Butler and Scarlett told him that he was no gentleman and she was surprised to hear that she was no lady.Then To make Ashley Wilkes feel jealous, Scarlett married the timid and shy Charles Hamilton who was Melanie brother. Every boy who was in love with Scarlett was furious and even the Tarletons twins swore to kill Charles. Then the war started, and before all the men went to the war, Scarlett married Charles and Melanie married Ashley on the...
