Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I never knew of this novel by Hawthorne, written in He wrote this after spending a year and a half in Rome with his family.

A murder, motivated by love, affects not only Donatello, the murderer, but his beloved Miriam and their friends Hilda and Kenyon. As he explores the reactions of each to the crime, Hawthorne dramatizes both the freedoms a new cultural model inspires and the self-censoring conformities it requires.
