If you could have a sequel...

I'm with those who would have love to read a Margaret Mitchell sequel to "Gone With The Wind". I mean the ending of GWTW ihas got to be the most perfect set-up for a sequel:
"Tara. Home. I'll go home, and I'll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day".

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Yeah, GWTW definitely needed one. After reading it as a teenager, I devised several endings. Then I read Scarlett, did not like it at all. Not that it might not have done well enough alone, but it wasn't a sequel, the characters weren't the same people. Just the same names, and a few of the same facts. The nuances that only the creator can give her own creations were all wrong.

There is no way I will read that sequel. It's beginning to look like GWTW is the hands down winner.
