Alexandra Ripley is also the author that penned "Scarlett", which was the sequel to Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With the Wind". So if you have read and enjoyed either of those stories, you will be inclined to enjoy this one. I am off to the sequel now.

Alexandra Ripley, née Braid (January 8, 1934 – January 10, 2004) was an American writer best known as the author of Scarlett (1991), written as a sequel to Gone with the Wind. Her first novel was Who's the Lady in the President's Bed? (1972). Charleston (1981), her first historical novel, was a bestseller, as were her next books On Leaving Charleston (1984), The Time Returns (1985), and New Orleans Legacy (1987).

Alexandra Braid, writer: born Charleston, South Carolina 8 January 1934; married 1958 Leonard Ripley (two daughters; marriage dissolved 1963), 1981 John Graham; died Richmond, Virginia 10 January 2004. Ironically, the historical novelist Alexandra Ripley's greatest publishing success came with a book about a character she did not particularly care for. Nor was the character even her creation. In the late Eighties Ripley wrote Scarlett, the "official" sequel to Margaret Mitchell's melodrama Gone With the Wind. Of Scarlett O'Hara Ripley said, at the time her sequel was published

The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves.

The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves. Now bestselling writer Alexandra Ripley brings us back to Tara and reintroduces us to the characters we remember so well: Rhett, Ashley, Mammy, Suellen, Aunt Pittypat, and, of course, Scarlett.

I read this book after my first visits to Charleston SC. I wanted something set in the time period of new Charleston and these books did not disappoint!!!!!! There are two books that I am aware of and they are quite long. An amazing story based upon the life of the Tradd family, a well to do southern Charleston family, who loses and rebuilds their fortunes along the way and all the familial relationships. The books are titled "Charleston" and "Leaving Charleston".

I just LOVE "Charleston" and "On Leaving Charleston". I'm not in the habit of re-reading books - but I've read these a few times and I know I'll re-read them again. I love how everything going on around the fictional characters are things that really happened in real life. I'm a huge fan of the Holy City (Charleston, SC), and these characters truly help me relate to how life must have been like in the city during the time periods of these two books.

Great book about the City of Charleston SC and the people living in there during the Civil War. Not only a novel with a lot of history about the area but a great saga about how the Civil War affected the lives of the people of Charleston. The people of Charleston were a very proud and gracious people who's families had lived in the area for generations, the Civil War destroyed their homes and lives but not their spirit.
There is a sequel to this book " ON LEAVING CHARLESTON" also by Alexander Ripley, which continues the saga of the people in the "CHARLESTON".

I read this book years ago and loaned it to someone who never returned it. It is such a favorite of mine that I bought another and read it again. No more loaning books! I love history and Charleston is my favorite city. I am reading Charleston books this summer. The story combines history with romance so that you almost feel like you were there. The sequel "On Leaving Charleston" is also a great read..

I love old fashioned page turning books, the wonderful feel of a book in my hands, the anticipation of NOT TURNING the page until I have finished reading the page I'm on. Just don't get that with an I-Pad

I read this years ago but remember so much of it that I wanted to read it again.
I love her writing.
