The Scarlet Letter (Classics)

The elderly husband of Hester Prynne returns unexpectedly to their New England village to find his wife nursing an illegitimate baby and wearing a scarlet letter 'A' - for Adulteress - embroidered on her dress.

While her husband embarks on a vengeful hunt for the child's father, Hester refuses to name him because he holds a recpected position in the Puritan community. In desperation, the lovers make a secret plan to flee to Europe with their young daughter.

A classic tale that caused a stir in 1850 America and remains a milestone in American fiction.
