S growing p and with the inuisitive mind of a young child I found what they were saying interesting enough to listen in They talked about how the taxi cab driver Hugh Gravitt some of which knew him as this was a small southern town where everyone knew everyone was not a drinker because of his health and how the newspaper articles had written he was drunk and speeding when it wasn t true I overheard many things about how the media was wrong regarding the circumstances of her death Some speculated she committed suicide others suspected her husband pushed her in front of the car Mr Gravitt was driving All commented that both Margaret and John were drunk and jaywalking across Peachtree StreetI read the book Gone with the Wind when I was 13 and went to see the movie in 1969 at the Fox theatre with friends I cannot relate how this impacted me I became interested in all I heard as a child again and over the years have read many articles on the subject of Margaret Mitchell and John Marsh I never believed the stories about Hugh Gravitt being at fault in her death as a result of all those conversations I had overheard by my elders as a childGloria Gravitt Moulder the daughter of Hugh Gravitt has written the perfect book called Bargain with the Devil with facts derived from her own father on his death bed I could not put this book down I read it in one day It has confirmed everything I heard from people who suspected in the few years after Margaret Mitchell s death what actually happened Thank you Mrs Moulder for your courage in bringing your father s version to light after all his suffering from 1949 to his death Also for confirming my beliefs in what I heard growing Behind Closed Doors (Made in Montana, up as this was only suspicionntil I read about your father s versionKathy Whiten621 Brighton DriveLawrenceville GA 30043404 516 0623.

There are kinder reviews on Goodreads than As of today the book only has 3 stars on and 4 stars on Goodreads I do think the author has a story to tell but the heavy bias and poor editing detract from the credibility of the book Even tabloids have better editors The book jumps around a lot One big example is the second to last chapter is her father s obituary The last chapter details her father s death There are spelling and grammatical errors throughout the book Even a paragraph starting with a lowercase letter The author s scorn of the Mitchells is apparent throughout the book She claims John set out to write a bestselling novel even before he met Margaret However the book s references do not include any direct writings of Margaret If the author would ve read the direct letters which are published she would ve learned how the success of the book surprised the Mitchells and wanted the publicity to go away Margaret was cheered when the book was off the bestseller list It seems odd to claim the Mitchells set out for fame and fortune when facts prove otherwise John kept his job for several years after the book was published Also Margaret refused to write anything else even though there was begging and pleading therefore it is obvious she didn t cash in on her fame A seuel to Gone with the Wind would ve been a cash cowThe author also made some libelous claims including one that they didn t have children because John was gay The author also claimed that Margaret had neither the education nor the discipline to achieve that goal to become a published writer The fact that Margaret is an accomplished writer can not be disputed by reading Gone with the Wind or her written correspondence that is published It is even amusing this claim is coming from this author whose book is poorly written as mentione.
