Publisher's Summary

Hester Prynne, a social outcast, defies the narrow Boston Puritans' call for her head when she refuses to disclose the name of the father of her out-of-wedlock baby. Forced to wear the "A" for Adultery on her chest, Hester bears it as a badge of honor and snubs her nose at hypocrisy.

My Mistake

I bought this without noticing that it was abridged. Never one to read abridged works, I find listening to this did nothing to enlighten me as to why anyone else would choose to do so. I'll move on to the real thing. . . .
