Book cover for The Scarlet Letter

The tale is set in 17th century Puritan Boston, and tells the story of Hester Prynne who conceives a child through an affair. Even while she’s being punished for this sin and forced to wear the scarlet letter A (for adultery), she won’t reveal her lover’s identity. But when her long-lost husband shows up on the scene, he’s out for revenge against the man who was part of this situation and yet escaped punishment…while Hester simply strives to create a life filled with dignity and repentance.
