Book 1 – The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne 

I was surprised how much I liked this book. I was expecting it to be a fairly t turgid, Victorian morality tale. But I found it a very sensitive and warm novel.Yes it was all about guilt, hypocrisy and sin. And yes, it described a Puritan society that seemed to be enslaved to Old Testament legalism.  But who ate we to judge, who didn’t create a new society from nothing. A recommend.
