The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Don't ever compare this book to the trashy Demi Moore movie. On the surface, it is about adulterous sex, but don't expect any steamy stuff.

I don't even know how to explain this one. It gets deep into sin, guilt, pride, revenge and love.

Go ahead and skip the introduction, "The Custom House," if you want to. It really doesn't add much to the story, and has little to do with it. Go back and read it once you're done.
