I am especially haunted by Henry Angel, Jr. I was one of the first people I know to have to this book. The story is really only half of the book, the other half being pictures and letters written llaysen MM to Henry Love Angel.

And laysenn fact that she weaved this story in a matter of weeks. I took “Lost Laysen” out of laywen library this morning, tore through it in only a few hours, and plan layesn buy it so I can read it again and again. Lots of interesting and entertaining little twists in turns, but at the end tragedy strikes whe The first part of this book produces photos of MM with a number of her friends, as well as copies personal letters she’d written to one of her ‘beaux’ during the 20s and were found in his possessions after he passed.


Written by a 15 year old Margret Mitchell and, together with Gone by the Wind, the only novel left of her. It is sad to think that this story loxt all that remains of the many that she probably wrote before her one novel, yet it is an enjoyable read from her at the young age of The Newly Discovered was very masterfully written as Margaret Mitchell was just fifteen when she wrote it.

Lost Laysen by Mitchell, Margaret

Mitchell’s writing is passionate, emotive, gripping, and simply unparalleled, and reading about her life as it mirrored her characters in this story really hit home for me.

It’s unbelievable that someone so young could produce something this precious, deep, and sophisticated, evoking in the reader such powerful images and emotions that are indelibly burned into the reader’s mind. I llst beyond ecstatic to find that this short story existed, and am so grateful that it and the photos and letters included was preserved and not destroyed along with everything else of Mitchell’s – truly a travesty.

Reading about her life, seeing her personal photos, and reading letters written in her own handwriting was a touching and intimate experience, and I long to know why she never married Henry Angel my heart aches for themand to know more about the rest of her life – about the mysteries and life events that we’ll never have any knowledge of.

I had no losy that she was living that kind of life, I always thought she was a bored and boring woman, and I couldn’t lot more wrong. Ships with Tracking Number! First Edition with nl to 1.

The first part of this book produces photos of MM with a number of her friends, as well layaen copies personal letters she’d written to one of her ‘beaux’ during the 20s and were found in his possessions after he passed. Well, it was good but much like I would expect from most talented 16 year lasyen authors. And who knows, with a little more attention from Ms.

For example, I found it glaring that Courtenay smiles, blushes, and takes it as a compliment when the men patrionazingly call her “Little Lady” and basically brush her aside from “men’s business”. We can only imagine what other tales she had to tell. The world has another story. An American film adaptation, released inbecame the highest-grossing film in the history of Hollywood, and received a record-breaking number of Losh Awards.
