I picked up a book at the library this week that I have read reviews about and thought it sounded interesting. The title is Hester by Paula Reed. The subtitle, which to me is very intruguing, is The Missing Years of The Scarlet Letter.
Here is the synopsis from the author's website:
Sweeping, engaging historical fiction, Hester will carry readers away to seventeenth century England with a deeply human story of family, love, history, desire, and the human ideal.
Sounds great, doesn't it?
Have any of you heard about this book? Have you read it? What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
