Summary

A tale of betrayal, revenge, loyalty, and redemption, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne is a true classic. 

Hester Prynne settles in a little town in Puritan-era Massachusetts while awaiting her husband’s arrival from England. Hester becomes pregnant, exposing her sin in the eyes of the townsfolk. Her penalty: wearing an embroidered A on her bosom for the remainder of her life. 

When Hester’s husband arrives in the town anticipating a joyous reunion with his young wife, he instead begins a cankering quest to uncover the father of Hester’s child.

No chapter 21

Chapter 22 is repeated twice and the chapter 21 isn’t read at all. Overall the performance of the reader was fantastic and easy to understand. But the audio editor needs to do their job better and not miss out a very important chapter where Hester finds out some key bad news.
