Synopsis

The House of Hawthorne by Erika Robuck

From their first meeting, artist Sophia Peabody and writer Nathaniel Hawthorne begin an intense romantic partnership. Together, they cross continents, raise children, and experience all the beauty and tragedy of life fully lived. But Sophia feels a perennial tug-of-war between her family's needs and her own desires. Spanning from the 1830s to the Civil War, and moving from Massachusetts to England, Portugal, and Italy, The House of Hawthorne explores the story of a woman, forgotten by history, who inspired one of the greatest writers of American literature...
