It tells the sad story of the unjustly exiled Silas Marner - a handloom linen weaver of Raveloe in the agricultural heartland of England - and how he is restored to life by the unlikely means of the orphan child Eppie.
As a high school student, I read this book 50 years ago. My mother was interested and read it then as well. It has stood the test of time. A setting distilled to the essence, and splendid characters reflecting a time and place found only in old sketches and forgotten memories of England before she became an empire are what make this expertly crafted tale a gem in the rough. George Elliott is the pen name of Mary Ann Evans, and I am still a fan.
The book has a great message and a really good story, you just have to get through how hard it is to understand!!
Classic story. Great lessons. Overall a great book to read.
