The stories in this Nathanial Hawthorne collection are performed alternately by four expert narrators - Walter Zimmerman, Walter Covell, Jack Benson, and John Chatty - each with his own vital performance style; each bringing a unique spark to these darkly romantic, ornately written stories. Hawthorne, often inspired by the history of Puritan New England, plumbs the psychological depths of human nature through gripping plots and subtle character development. The range of audio performances adds some contrast to what Greenleaf Whittier called the "weird and subtle beauty" of Hawthorn's prose.
