Road to Tara Excerpt
Release Date: 8 November 2017, Margaret Mitchell’s birthday
Publisher: Jewel Audiobooks
Time: 14 hours
Margaret Mitchell was as complex and compelling as her legendary heroine, Scarlett O’Hara, and her story is as dramatic as anything out of her own imagination. Indeed, it is the basis for the legend she created. Gone with the Wind took the American public by storm and went on to become one of the most popular books and motion pictures of all time. The book was a phenomenon whose success has never been equaled, but it shattered Margaret Mitchell’s private life. In Road to Tara, Anne Edwards tells the real story of Margaret Mitchell and the extraordinary novel that has become part of our heritage.
AudioFile Magazine, the premiere publication of the audiobook industry, wrote about my narration:
In this comprehensive biography, narrator Karen Commins tackles Peggy Mitchell’s accent and mannerisms with a deft touch. Commins sounds Southern but not syrupy, and she captures the wry humor and wit of the author. She also creates distinguishable voices for most of the other main players in Mitchell’s story.
