Speaking as someone who got through The Scarlet Letter only because of Cliff Notes, I hadn't given Nathaniel Hawthorne a thought since high school until I actually moved to Concord, Massachusetts, and got a job working as a guide in one of the houses where he lived. I read the book as a homework assignment--and loved it! Nathaniel was amazingly good looking, but very shy and a bit of a snob. ("Pride and Prejudice", anyone?) He didn't fall in love until he was in his 30s, and then fell hard and t [...]

An absolutely great book absorbing and informative and just damned good. Makes me wish I had lived in Concord at the same time (although I suspect I would have had more in common with Bronson Alcott

McFarland masterfully weaves together a narrative that enthralls. This fine book is so rich in little known details of daily interaction and personal correspondence among the various literary figures of Concord in the middle of the nineteenth century, Hawthorne being at the center. This time in our history and the people who lived in it shaped our present in ways that are lost to us, until McFarland shows us the pattern that was there all the time, if we had but looked to see it. Excellent read. [...]

Loved this book. Can not believe how many people we know of in us history and us literature were associated with Hawthorne. If I can, in future I will write a more informed review. Can not encourage enough readers to devour this book. I am bummed I have finished it. Enjoy it!

An excellent study of a complex member of the Concord genius cluster. Great job on this bio, very readable.

Because I'm a geek!

A wonderful summary of the Hawthorne family, and of the other concord authors.
