Anybody know any books or stories about Puritans?
I'm looking for something like The Scarlet Letter or The Crucible, with a similar sin/redemption plot.

I just finished reading "A Break with Charity: A Story about the Salem Witch Trials by Ann Rinaldi and it is the story of the salem witches as seen by a young girl living at that time. It was really a good book and was about the Puritans and had a sin/redemption plot without being as boring as The Scarlet Letter of The Crucible.

Oh, a novel. Here's a bibliography of nonfiction on Puritanism: http://www.wsu.edu/~campbelld/amlit/purbib.htm . Here appears to be a list of Puritan-themed novels: http://books.guardian.co.uk/top10s/top10/0,,423638... . And here is another list: http://www.nzetc.org/tm/scholarly/tei-Whi031Kota-t... .
