Like all of Hawthorne's novels, "The Scarlet Letter" has but a slender plot and but few characters with an influence on the development of the story.

Boston 1642: Imprisoned for the crime of adultery, young wife Hester Prynne is condemned on her release to bear a public display of her shame - a scarlet letter 'A' stitched upon her dress. For the sake of her baby daughter Pearl, the product of her illicit liaison, she determines to weather the scorn of her Puritan community with defiance and dignity. Meanwhile, her husband is resolved to uncover the identity of Pearl's father - information Hester refuses to divulge to a single soul. But while Hester bears the stigma alone, one of the village's fine upstanding men is burning with guilt for his own part in her transgression.
