Silas Marner - George Elliot

Product Description(
In this heartwarming classic by George Eliot, a gentle linen weaver named Silas Marner is wrongly accused of a heinous theft actually committed by his best friend. Exiling himself to the rustic village of Raveloe, he becomes a lonely recluse. Ultimately, Marner finds redemption and spiritual rebirth through his unselfish love for an abandoned child who mysteriously appears one day in his isolated cottage.

Somber, yet hopeful, Eliot’s realistic depiction of an irretrievable past, tempered with the magical elements of myth and fairy tale, remains timeless in its understanding of human nature and has been beloved for generations.

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.  Silas is drawn to this child.  And tries to help.  The author has done a wonderful job with this story, it's very heart warming.  I give this book 5....
