The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Scarlet Letter was a real page-turner for me. It made me want to read more historical-fiction books. Since that time long ago, I became a teacher, then a librarian. I am retired now but continue to share my love of books with my grandchildren and those where I volunteer three days a week. There is nothing like a good book! —Mary Ann Koonce
