There was a fire in her and throughout her. Hester Prynne's husband had been abroad for years, maybe lost at sea.
Many men used the opportunity to try to charm her. . . . There was only one Hester couldn't resist. When Hester's sin is discovered, the townspeople of Boston force her to wear the scarlet letter as a stamp of shame.
But Hester refuses to give up the name of the man she loves.
She'll protect him and their forbidden love-to the very end. Nathaniel Hawthorne's masterpiece of dark romanticism is one of the most enduring stories about the price of unchecked passion.
Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience, this is the must-have edition of a timeless classic.
