The Scarlet Letter (Literature)

"This young lady..."
"Hester."

Nathaniel Hawthorne's protagonist from the classic The Scarlet Letter, Hester Prynne, had everything going for her: she was a good Puritan and she knew her way around a sewing circle. However, she was too passionate for her own good and ended up alone in America and pregnant by the local pastor. Shamed and shunned by the community, Hester lived on to raise her daughter despite what the town thought of her. Methinks she and Veronica would have gotten along well. I only hope that Veronica would never get as close to the pastor as Hester did.
