SCARLETT O’HARA was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm as the Tarleton twins were. In her face were too sharply blended the delicate features of her mother, a Coast aristocrat of French descent, and the heavy ones of her florid Irish father. But it was an arresting face, pointed of chin, square of jaw. Her eyes were pale green without a touch of hazel, starred with bristly black lashes and slightly tilted at the ends. Above them, her thick black brows slanted upward, cutting a startling oblique line in her magnolia-white skin-that skin so prized by Southern women and so carefully guarded with bonnets, veils and mittens against hot Georgia suns.

Great novel. Have read it in Russian and English. One of the best books that can be considered as the masterpieces of the American literature. Of course, reading the novel in original language gives special spectrum of ideas and feelings regarding the book. I'd recommend it for reading as it gives an opportunity to discover interesting historical facts about the certain period of American people.
