The House of the Seven Gables, like The Scarlet Letter, is a historical novel. It tells the story of the Pyncheon family. The Pyncheons are plagued by a curse because of Colonel Pyncheon, a forbear who built the family house by sacrificing the life of an innocent man. Pro-tip: to avoid curses, make sure innocent men don't die so you can get your dream home.
