Built on land taken from a dead wizard, The Pyncheon's seven-gabled mansion was the focus for two centuries' secrets and legends: legends of hauntings and undying curses, secrets of madness and missing fortunes. Age and poverty now claimed the house and its residents--old, reclusive Miss Hepzibah; her strange, troubled brother Clifford; and the mysterious young artist Holgrave.

Then, suddenly the house as transformed by the arrival of the Pyncheons' beautiful young cousin, Phoebe. She brought life, laughter, and love into the tiny world of dusty, dark despair.

But one rich, powerful, corrupt man--Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon--coveting the mansion's hidden secrets. And his plot to find them meant destroying all hope and happiness in The House of the Seven Gables.
