Hawthorne's masterpiece comes vividly alive in this adaptation which begins at the gallows as Colonel Pyncheon greedily steals the land of Matthew Maule to build a magnificent house. But with his dying words, "God will give you blood to drink," Maule curses the Pyncheon family for generations. A hundred and fifty years later, Hepzibah Pyncheon, an aging old maid, is forced to open a cent shop in the now decrepit house to keep herself and her child-like brother from starving. It seems all hope is lost for the family. But that's precisely when pretty, 17-year-old Phoebe Pyncheon arrives to breathe life and love into the House of the Seven Gables. But will it be enough to end the curse and allow Matthew Maule to rest at last? Romance, history and even moments of Gothic terror combine to create a powerful story.
