Synopsis

Silas Marner, which first appeared in 1861, is a tale about life, love, and the need to belong. Accused of a crime he didn't commit and unjustly forced from his home town, Silas the weaver lives a reclusive and godless life, finding love and companionship only in material objects. It takes the theft of his gold and the discovery of an abandoned infant to remind him of the importance of human relationships and faith. Author George Eliot carefully weaves the interaction of plot and character, and, in so doing, depicts Silas Marner's redemption and rebirth through his love and protection of the orphaned girl and the possibility of losing her. Throughout the book, Eliot also takes the opportunity to voice her feelings about industrialization, religion, and social class distinctions.

Back in the day I was not a fan of classics while in high school and didnt have the patience to read them. This turned out to be a very fortunate turn of events for me as I now catch up on all of the wonders of that genre. Silas Marner is one of my favorite reads so far. I just finished the audio book today and see that this is a tale for todays citizens to reflect upon. Religion, treachery, saviors, absolution, morality and immorality, wasted years, found years, redemption, people standing for something in the face of ugly coersion. Amazing and I loved it!
