Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: To plant a family! This idea is at the bottom of most of the wrong and mischief which men do. The truth is, that, once in every half-century, at longest, a family should be merged into the great, obscure mass of humanity, and forget all about its ancestors.

Living in a mansion known for its unique roof of seven gables, Hepzibah Pyncheon finds herself destitute and in desperate need to make ends meet. To further her struggle, she is now in care of her brother who had just been released after a thirty-year prison sentence for murder. But there is more to the Pyncheon ancestry that involves the history of the mansion. A Pyncheon ancestor had accused a man named Matthew Maule of witchcraft solely so that the Pyncheon family could seize this man's land. Maule, before being hanged and his property wrongfully seized by the Pyncheon family, cursed the ground on which the mansion with the seven gables would be built. Murder, vindication, and even the supernatural unfold under the renowned seven gabled roof of this mysterious New England mansion.
