I liked this story. It was fun to read, thinking what does Becky do next. I liked her character but I couldn't understand her behavior sometimes. Especially, her way of treating her friend, Amelia, sometimes. They had boken up, however at last they made up with each other so I was happy. ( )

This story is very interesting, and I like main characters, Rebecca and Amelia.
They are very different but both of them are very attractive.

I think this story is a little similar to 'Gone with the Wind'.
But, Rebecca made use of men much more than Scarlet.

Rebecca was not a good lady, but finally she became a kind person. ( )
