Abstract:

From the Publisher: The year is 1640. Hester Prynne is a young widow living in the Puritan settlement of Boston. Two years after her arrival in the New World, she has a child. Who is the father of Hester's strange, elf-like child? Was Hester's husband really lost at sea? Is the minister really a miracle of holiness? Is the misshapen old doctor really an agent of evil? As the line between the real and the imaginary blurs, Hawthorne's dark tale of hidden sin reveals the price that the human heart must pay for secret shame and guilt.
