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.

The scarlet letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

This is a classic that I have read several times. The narration by Nancy Peterson was absolutely fabulous she did a nice job differentiating between the characters and the narrative. I highly recommend this version. I was voluntarily provided a review copy from the author publisher or narrator

The narrator is stellar!

This was a "re-read" for me. I have found that I am much more motivated to revisit classics if I listen to an audiobook. I think I loved the story even more this time. It has a Feminist slant to it that, after reading many of the Goodreads reviews, I don't think a majority of people pick up on.

The narrator is stellar. Her pacing is spot on, and her character voices are distinct, but natural sounding. Her words are easily understood, and there were no annoying sounds (lip smacks, or loud breath intakes) present. I will be looking for other books she has narrated.
