Silas Marner – George Eliot

Silas Marner – George Eliot

Set in the agricultural town of Raveloe in the English countryside, Silas Marner is a tragic figure.

Exiled from a religious community because of a wrongful accusation of theft, he works from day to day as a weaver, saving his money and living a lonely life as a recluse.

It is only when his money is stolen and a small orphan girl, Eppie appears in his life that Silas’s fortunes begin to change and he truly begins to learn what it means to regain his faith in life.
