Part Two: This update is way overdo lol. Sorry it took so long! And yes, I am using images from the movie version of the book because it has no illustrations. Hope that's okay with everybody. ;)
Part Two describes the realization Scarlett begins to have that she is no longer a damsel training to "catch" a husband. No; she is a widow with a son. Scarlett resents this fact, taking it out on Melanie and even her baby Wade. She also behaves in ways that embarrass her family. She sees the harsh reality of war and the terrible consequences it has on the families around her. But Scarlett, being the self-centered belle she is, can only see her own petty problems. Romance begins to bud between Rhett and her as well, and the forbidden romance between her and Ashley continues.
I liked reading this part, but when I got about halfway through with it I remembered that I hadn't liked it as much as the first part (and still didn't). I feel a little bit like Scarlett in the fact that reading about the ultra-Southern "party" times is more interesting than the war. Also, as other school projects and responsibilities have doubled for me, I've had less time to read. But I'm already on Part Three, which has presented plots I'd forgotten about. Onward! :)
