The House of the Seven Gables

The House of the Seven Gables

  

by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

G

There is nothing in this book that would bring a blush to Hepzibah's cheek. It's 1851 in Puritan-influenced Massachusetts, so Hawthorne's not going to be giving us anything remotely steamy.
