Scarlett O’Hara is the famous heroine of the romantic story Gone with the wind. Her story starts at the eve of the the American Civil War in 1861. She is beautiful. She has vitality. But Ashley, the man she has wanted for so long, is going to marry his placid cousin. So she fights her own way during the war, doing everything to keep her beloved farm Tara, a cotton plantation in the south. To keep Tara she marries Rhett Buttler, who had been advancing her for many months. She neglects his love and the marriage turns out to be very unhappy.
When Ashley’s wife dies during pregnancy she finally sees the truth, that Ashley had never loved her and her waiting for him was in vain. She realizes that she loves Rhett, but returning home she finds him preparing to leave Tara for good. She pleads with him, telling him she realizes now how much she loves him. However, he refuses. As Rhett is about to walk out the door, Scarlett begs him to stay but to no avail, and he walks away into the early morning fog leaving Scarlett weeping on the staircase and vowing to one day win back his love.
