Summary (From the publisher):

Hester Prynne gives birth to a child while her husband is away and refuses to name the father, thereby scandalising her community. In the harsh moral climate of Puritan New England, she is forced to wear a scarlet 'A' for 'adulteress' embroidered on her breast. It is Hester's great love for her daughter and an inner sense of personal morality which sustain her through painful years of public disgrace, and make her one of literature's strongest heroines.
