MY THOUGHTS: I'm not really fond of reading the classics. But I've decided to read some this year. I really liked this one. Silas is such a gentle soul that has been persecuted for something he didn't do. He lives his life alone in the village and works weaving his linen. Until one day a lone child appears in the village.
