For this month's Readers' Review: “Euphoria,” by Lily King, a novel inspired by events in the life of revolutionary anthropologist Margaret Mead.
“The Scarlet Letter” tells the story of a passionate young woman, her cowardly lover and her aging, vengeful husband. Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote it in the 19th century but set it in the Puritan community of 17th-century Boston. Its depiction of the struggle between heart and mind remains timeless.
