I'm a huge Gone With the Wind fan which is weird since there is no HEA and I'm an even bigger romance fan who LOVES HEA's. So, I was happy to read a book that gave a HEA to Rhett and Scarlett. Yes, it takes away from the GWTW to have a "conclusion" if you will but for someone who lusts for a HEA it was fine for me.
The movie they did from the book, however, was not. Just an FYI for anyone who was interested in the book and the movie.
