A Valentine’s Day Invitation

14 Feb

On this Valentine’s Day it is time to search your bookshelves, place that library hold, take a trip to the bookstore, or make on online order.

Why?

Because very soon A Classic Case of Madness will begin reading a love story.

Awww!  How romantic!

Will it be a love story similar to Pride and Prejudice?

No.

Will it be a love story more like Jane Eyre?

No.

Well, what kind love story is it going to be?

The next classic novel on our WEM list tells the tale of a married woman who has an affair and gives birth to a daughter.  When the woman’s husband unexpectedly returns, she refuses to reveal the identity of her child’s father.

Have you guessed the title?

Get ready to read about Puritans.  Get ready to read about adultry.  Get ready to read Nathaniel Hawthorne’s
The Scarlet Letter.
