The Scarlet Letter

What message does the novel make about sin? Does the novel show it cannot be washed away completely?

Please reference a specific part in the novel to show proof

I think the novel's message is the exact opposite. Hester's sin is paid for, atoned for, and eventually forgotten completely. In the end, it comes down to who she is rather than what she's done.
