Read by Kristen Underwood

Convicted and imprisoned because she was unwilling to name her partner in adultery, Hester Prynne is forced to wear a scarlet "A" on the breast of her gown for the remainder of her life. This unending public reminder of sin torments her days and haunts her soul. Four people will be destroyed by a complex web of guilt and secrets, unless one of them will reveal the truth behind the scarlet letter. This is a masterful exploration of man's unending struggle with adultery, guilt, and pride
