    In this book's introduction, an autobiographical account of the author's years as an American Custom House official, Hawthorne describes how he came across a parchment from which fell a fraying piece of fabric, fantastically embroidered and inscribed with the scarlet letter A. He found himself compelled to tell the story of its owner, Hester Prynne, a young English woman who had lived in 17th-century Boston at the time when Puritan extremism - that which led to the infamous witch trials of Salem - was at its height.

    A portrait of Colonel Pyncheon looms over his family in the house of the seven gables - an ominous reminder of the curse he left behind over a century ago. The shadow still falls over the New England mansion's current residents, siblings Clifford and Hepzibah - unless they can expose the one secret that offers an escape from the hex. Set in seventeenth- and nineteenth-century Massachusetts, Nathaniel Hawthorne's gothic tale was inspired by the Salem Witch Trials and by a family home that still stands today.

    American author Nathaniel Hawthorne has astounded critics and the public alike for well over a century with his tales of horror, mystery, darkness, and romance. The short story, "The Haunted Mind", first published in 1835, is a perfect example of Hawthorne delving into the unknown in interesting and unexpected ways. Hawthorn referred to the state between sleep and wakefulness as The Haunted Mind, and discusses the strange, obscure, and mysterious feelings and experiences we have all had in this state or similar somnambulant phases.
