I clearly remember reading "Gone with the Wind" when I was quite young--4th grade. I was horrified by the ending---so much so that I literally threw the book across the room. It is because of GWTW that I--to this day--read the ending of every single book, and make sure that I know the ending of every movie before I see it. I hate to be surprised. My friends think I'm nuts, but it's a firm rule with me. All because of the unresolved ending of that great American classic.
A lovely coming of age novel. The young heroine Lucy struggles to understand herself as she experiences romantic love for the first time and in doing so, must choose between two suitors. Who does she love--the overly-staid, self-absorbed Cecil, to whom she is engaged, or the more romantic George, who stole a kiss in romantic Florence and awakens her passionate nature. Lucy becomes a fully realized female personality in this book and makes her choice.
