Silas Marner is weaver framed and unjustly accused of financial impropriety, which causes him to lose both his standing in the community, as well as the heart of his intended. Leaving his village for the Midlands, he becomes a miser, weaving and hording gold all day and night. When his stash is stolen, it appears Marner's life has taken a turn for the worse all over again. One night, however, a golden-haired child wanders into his house. Discovering her mother dead in the snow, Marner takes her in, and with the help of his brother, neighbor, and community, little Eppie transforms Silas and the lives of those around her. 160 pages, softcover. Wordsworth Classic Edition. Introduction and Notes by R.T. Jones. Complete and Unabridged.
