Book Description

1 Oct 2006
Hester Prynne. Over one hundred fifty years have passed since Hawthorne first introduced us to her, yet her tragedy still haunts us; and even though we're reluctant to admit it, we all know why. For all of our history and all of our talk, we're still a society afraid to believe in honesty. The Next Puritan is the story of a modern-day Hester who meets and falls in love with someone far different from the Reverend Dimmesdale, someone who actually lives in awe of the truth rather than in fear of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoughtful and highly philosophical narrative. 6 Jan 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
The Next Puritan is a novel about ethical dilemmas and the conflict between practical and religious morals. Nineteen-year-old Rachel Shepherd has seen enough of life's dark side that she is no wide-eyed innocent; when she observes evidence that Art, the close friend of her boyfriend Virgil, has committed a heinous crime, she must decide what to do next. She knows that Art is no cold-blooded killer and not a threat to others, and chooses to lie to the police in order to give him the opportunity to end the tragedy of his making on his own terms. But Rachel's boyfriend Virgil is devoutly religious, and believes that mercy and morality come through faith in God alone - that lying even with the best of intentions is the worst of actions, because it violates God's commandment against false witness and betrays a lack of faith in God to make things right. A thoughtful and highly philosophical narrative.
