Pearl Prynne, embittered by her mother’s cruel treatment at the behest of the Puritan clergy and residents of Colonial Salem, resolves to fight the established traditions of male-dominated 17th Century New England and Great Britain and does so with wealth inherited from a most unlikely source. She also resolves to exclude all men from her personal life. However, her resolve is in conflict with her lusty nature and she uses one man to explore her sexuality and unwillingly falls in love with another, a man with an unusual relationship to her. In what the author has imagined would be the prequel and sequel to The Scarlet Letter, the interwoven lives of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s four principles: Pearl Prynne, her mother Hester, her father Arthur Dimmesdale, and the mysterious Roger Chillingworth, are revealed in detail. A must read for devotees of historical fiction.
