As the movie version of 'Gone With The Wind' ended, Scarlett's life was in a shambles. First, she lost her little girl, Bonnie, when she fell from her pony. A few days later, her best friend Melanie died. Now Rhett has left her. Our story begins where the movie left off. There's only one place where Scarlett can be healed. She must go home to the red earth of Tara. She vows to change her life, change herself, and make atonement for her mistakes. Somehow, someway, she will win Rhett back. Once home, Scarlett finds that Tara isn't the safe haven she expected. Old friends may not be what they once were. There are people who don't like a rich, independent woman. An unexpected gift from an old enemy changes her life and may be the key to bringing Rhett back to her. Along the way, Scarlett learns some bitter truths about slavery and she tells Big Sam and Mammy that she's through with lies and deception and in the future, she wants only the cold, hard truth, no matter what illusions it destroys. When she beats him in a land deal, Scarlett antagonizes her old overseer, Jonas Wilkerson. He swears deadly vengeance after he is humiliated in front of the whole town. Can Scarlett make peace with her sisters, regain the love of the man she lost, and atone for her mistakes? More importantly, can she protect her family and the home she loves from ghostly midnight riders with white hoods and burning crosses?

A Michigan native, Donna studied writing in schools in Michigan, Florida, and Las Vegas. She first came to Vegas to make costumes and was soon weaving the stories she heard in the back of the girl’s dressing room into her first novel. Now she is the author of The Alexandra Merritt Mysteries--"The Last Two Aces in Las Vegas", "The Las Vegas Desert Flower", "The Las Vegas Special", and "Rough Ride in Vegas". Her most recent publication, "Conversations With Skip", a romantic comedy, is the story of a young divorcee who adopts a shelter dog that soon begins running her life, arranging her romances, and teaching her to laugh again. She also has several other stand-alone thrillers available on Kindle, "Desperate Ambition", about a political assassin, "The Right Society", about a devout family that moves into a religious community and finds it’s easier to get in than it is to get out, and "The Other Hand", about a famous athlete who leaves his family to marry a very young, very virginal girl. When she is found slaughtered, he is the primary suspect but not the only one. Donna has also put her stamp on two historical romances, "Christmas Delayed" and "Pillsbury Crossing", and now, "Tara". She has also completed three screenplays, a stage play, poetry, short stories, and a biography of her grandmother. She still takes occasional classes at UNLV and at writer’s conferences and is an active member of the Anthem Authors.
