About ‘Hester’: A vivid reimagining of the woman who inspired Hester Pyrnne, the bold and passionate heroine of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s ‘The Scarlet Letter.’“A standout historical… Even those unfamiliar with the classic will be hooked by this account of a capable woman standing up to the sexist and racial prejudices of her time.” – PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
