The scarlet letter : a romance / Nathaniel Hawthorne.


Hester Prynne is a beautiful young woman. She is also an outcast. In the eyes of her neighbours, she has committed an unforgivable sin. Everyone knows that her little daughter, Pearl, is the product of an illicit affair - but no one knows the identity of Pearl's father. Hester's refusal to name him brings more condemnation upon her. But she stands strong in the face of public scorn, even when she is forced to wear the sign of her shame sewn onto her clothes: the scarlett letter 'A', for 'Adultress'.
