In the gloomy, haunted House of Seven Gables, Hepzibah Pyncheon cares for her brother, Clifford. Once brilliant, Clifford is now feeble, having languished in prison 30 years for committing murder. But is he guilty? Was he framed by his cousin Jaffrey, today an eminent judge? As Clifford regains strength, aided by his young cousin Phoebe, and a mysterious boarder, Holgrave, he prepares for the final confrontation with Jaffrey.
