Book News: New Sequel to Gone with the Wind

Twelve years after the release of the original sequel to Gone with the Wind, St. Martin's Press has announced that it will publish Rhett Butler’s People this coming fall. The story will be told from Rhett Butler's point of view, focusing on his ideas and telling the story of his life. Although written by Donald McCaig, the estate of Margaret Mitchell has said that it will remain true to her writing style and vision. It is likely that the book world will have mixed feelings about the release of a sequel to this classic. Some will enjoy the new take on the story, while others will feel that the classic should never have been tampered with. What do you think?
