The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne

I cannot praise enough Nathaniel Hawthorne's eloquence of heart and soul! The foremost “character” being an ancestral abode of dark and brooding visage visiting upon its inhabitants the sins of their forefathers, I was not convinced of the story's billing as a romance, yet I would agree that Hawthorne's allegorically poetic style is infused with romance.
