Description
"At the conclusion of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, Hester Prynne and her daughter, Pearl, disappear from Puritan Boston; much later Hester returns alone. [Paula] Reed fills in those missing years by imagining that Hester and Pearl set sail for England to claim Pearl's inheritance. In London, Hester seeks out an old school friend, Mary Wright, whose husband is a staunch supporter of Oliver Cromwell, and she and Pearl become part of the Wright household. Besides her daughter and her skill with a needle, Hester has brought with her what Hawthorne called 'a sympathetic knowledge of the hidden sins of other hearts.' Through Colonel Wright's agency, she is introduced to Cromwell, who has her use her strange gift to help him detect traitors to his cause. As a result, she finds herself drawn into Cromwell's inner circle and into a world of ever-more-dangerous political intrigue. Reed's Hester is true to the original, and her setting and period details are convincing. A good choice for historical-fiction fans with a literary bent."Booklist
