What was the last book that brought tears to your eyes as you finished the last page Not due to the heroheroine s tragic death but simply because you have finished the story That s how I felt after finishing Rhett Butler s People tonightRhett Butler s People is set around Margaret Mitchell s classic novel You meet Rhett before that fateful meeting at a Twelve Oaks picnic and the book continues to weave in and out of the well known events of GWTW The author then takes you beyond Rhett s dramatic exit and continues the story Granted he continues it for all of 90 pages but it just feels right where the story goes after Yes I ve read Scarlett but I prefer Mr McCaig s version of the events I will also admit that there were a few places in the story that I would have loved to smack Ms O Hara and that I can t recall having that urge in her story Rhett Butler s People is true to the original novel Scarlett has three children Suellen marries after the War and other characters left out of the movie are here That s definitely a plus for me

Read & Download Rhett Butler's People µ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook E of the Civil War Of course there is Scarlett Katie Scarlett O’Hara the headstrong passionate woman whose life is inextricably entwined with Rhett’s like him than she cares to admit; in love with him than she’ll ever knowBrought to vivid and authentic life by the hand of a master Rhett Butler’s People fulfills the dreams of those whose imaginations have been indelibly marked by Gone With The Wind. I first heard about RBP by browsing through this site and I was very excited to find a copy My excitement started to fizzle as soon as I began reading itMcCaig spent 12 years writing this authorized preuel but chose time and again to alter or blatantly ignore key events from not only GWTW but also from the also authorized seuel Scarlett Apparently he felt that disregarding Scarlett was prefectly acceptable stating that I think the trust wanted to expunge Scarlett they were genuinely embarrassed by it says McCaig Be that as it may it was authorized and part of the GWTW canon whether the Mitchell Estate or fans were pleased with it or not and should not have been disregarded A great deal of the story is wasted fleshing out characters connected to Rhett that were previously unknown that in my opinion readers were better off not knowing in the first place His childhood friends were uninteresting for the most part as were most details about his relationships with his parents The one interesting new character was that of Tazewell Watling son of the notorious Belle and presumably by all who know him Rhett I was bored senseless through it 99% of it and hoped the story would be greatly improved once Scarlett Ashley Melanie et al entered the story But that didn t happenInstead I was horrified to see beloved characters acting completely unlike themselves Melanie eavesdropping and finding out Scarlett didn t love Charles Ashley actually loving Scarlett Melanie always being aware of how Scarlett and Ashley felt about each other and expecting them to have an affair ultimately seducing her own husband for fear that their forced celibacy would send him into Scarlett s arms Not to mention writing letters to Rosemary Butler Ravanel detailing how much she hated the celibacy As if Melanie proper Southern lady that she was would ever put such a thing in writing Pffft And since when is Ella epilepticThe one thing that might have redeemed this atrocity somewhat would have been knowing Rhett s private thoughts about Scarlett s miscarriage and the death of Bonnie The miscarriage was ignored as though it never happened Bonnie s death and the days following it were not told from Rhett s perspective at all but Melanie s via a letter to Rosemary Two of the most wrenching moments in Rhett s married life and we are given nothing from Rhett s point of view Both played a major role in his later decision to leave Scarlett so why are we not privy to his feelings about these events The story continues past GWTW s ending Rhett digs Melanie s grave at Twelve Oaks wasn t that lost due to unpaid taxes and rides away immediately after Scarlett and the children including Beau come home to Tara along with Rosemary and her son Louis Valentine Ridiculous name Ashley sells the sawmills and moves back to the ruins of Twelve Oaks Vandals strike Tara Scarlett s home in Atlanta is burned by an arsonist Even though they are paid well field workers refuse to come to Tara leaving the family to manage on their own and once again Scarlett who now has no money must struggle to keep Tara and feed her family So much for As God is my witness I ll never be hungry again eh Finally in desperation Scarlett telegraphs Rhett and asks him to come home and he doesAnd where has Rhett been London Paris Still not giving a damn about anything much less himself trying his best to forget Scarlett Seeing the dashing Rhett Butler reduced to a lovelorn man who doesn t care if he lives or dies is well disgusting Yes love hurts sometimes and the pain of loss can be overwhelming Still it seems implausible that Rhett would allow himself to wallow in grief or self pity for very long I also find it unfathomable that he would come home the instant he is beckoned Grieving and unhappy as he may be you would think there would be a small spark of his former self intact that would not allow him to come running the moment Scarlett crooked her finger at him As Rhett makes his journey home Belle Watling alerts Scarlett and Rosemary that her father Isaiah the former overseer of the Butler plantation along with two others have been terrorizing Tara hoping for Scarlett to send for Rhett so that Isaiah could kill him in retaliation for the death of his son killed in a duel with Rhett when Rhett was assumed to have fathered her baby The women devise a plan to put an end to things and save Rhett from being killed but Ashley and Will Benteen Sue Ellen s husband intervene resulting in the death of Will Ashley as the dashing hero out to save the day was humorous to say the leastRhett returns safely pays off all the debts and things are looking bright for the couple A much wanted reconciliation is taking place between the couple and a happy ending is in sight when a grand barbeue takes place at Tara But now we come to the final disgrace of this ill written thing Isaiah Watling returns and sets fire to Tara If I hadn t been so angry I might have wept Throughout everything Scarlett went through in her life Tara was the one mainstay in her life her one safe haven I suppose it wasn t enough to ruin the characters and have them do things they would never have done or to completely ignore details both big and small in the writing of this shameful travesty In order to put the final nail in the coffin of all the beloved aspects of GWTW he had to get rid of Tara too Rather than enhancing the classic novel RBP all but destroys all the things readers held dear about Mitchell s wonderfully complex group of characters Alexandra Ripley s Scarlett did not in my opinion keep these characters true to form throughout that novel either but the majority of it was enjoyable to read and the writing style much in line with Mitchell s than McCaig s managed to be I can t understand why he was chosen to write this I guess my first clue that this was to be a bad book should have been the fact that I ve never heard of himWhat a terrible terrible disappointment this book turned out to be
