Obsessive, reclusive, artistically inclined watchmaker Owen Worland spends his entire life trying to capture natural beauty in his scientific inventions. But he is frequently discouraged and set back by the interference of the townspeople, his former master, and the lovely Annie Hovenden. Will Owen ever fulfill his life's goal and create the ultimate perfection?
Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables, explores the themes of artistic temperament and the meshing of nature and technology in this charming little tale.
