Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

As most of you know, this is the ill-fated love story of Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler. It’s also the love story of Scarlett and Ashley Wilkes, and Ashley and Melanie Hamilton. Add to those love triangles the franticness of the American Civil War as well as Reconstruction, and a romantic farewell to “The South,” and you have this epic. I picked it up at my parents’ when I visited them without a book. I was surprised that I couldn’t put it down. The book is much darker than the movie. The writing is captivating. No wonder it won the National Book Award as well as the Pulitzer.
