This dilapidated house carries a curse from Wizard Maule, the man it was taken from by the ancestor of the current owner. Hawthorne, whose own great-grandfather was a judge in the Salem witch trials, weaves a complex tale of betrayals, secrets and concealed relationships that in the end resolves Maule's curse and unites the two alienated families.

First published in 1851, The House of the Seven Gables is one of Hawthorne's defining works, a vivid depiction of American life and values replete with brilliantly etched characters. The tale of a cursed house with a "mysterious and terrible past" and the generations linked to it, Hawthorne's chronicle of the Maule and Pyncheon families over two centuries reveals, in Mary Oliver's words, "lives caught in the common fire of history."
