Description

The Scarlet Letter, the 19th-century novel that propelled Nathaniel Hawthorne to international fame, is a literary masterpiece that continues to captivate readers with its enduring themes of guilt, sin, and redemption. Transport yourself to 17th-century Puritan New England and follow the story of Hester Prynne, a young woman punished for adulterous acts. Branded with a scarlet letter “A” as a badge of shame, Hester struggles within the rigid moral confines of her community while hiding a perilous secret.

The Scarlet Letter is an American classic, and a must-have for any personal library. Each Nathaniel Hawthorne book from our store is stamped saying “Purchased from the House of the Seven Gables,” and with a facsimile of his signature from our archives.
