In the twilight of life, Silas Marner has only his loom and his gold.…

Embittered by a false accusation, disappointed in friendship and love, the weaver Silas Marner hoards a treasure that destroys his spirit until fate steals it from him and replaces it with a golden-haired child. Where she came from, who her parents were, and who really stole the gold are the secrets that fill this moving tale of guilt and innocence.

A moral allegory of the redemptive power of love, it is also a finely drawn portrait of early nineteenth-century England in the days when spinning wheels hummed busily in the farmhouses and of a simple way of life that was soon to disappear.

This novel is part of Brilliance Audio's extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.

    " I recently solicited from my close friends, work colleauges and some learned people their list of "must - read" books. Surprisingly, Silas Marner was on more than a few lists. I had never heard of it. That was my misfortune as this is a great read. The narrator, John Peakes does an outstanding job. As a book on tape listener knows...the book can be only as good as reader allows. "

About the Author
Author George Eliot

George Eliot, the pen name of Mary Ann, or Marian, Evans (1819–1880), was an English Victorian novelist of the first rank. An assistant editor for the Westminster Review from 1851 to 1854, she wrote her first fiction in 1857 and her first full-length novel, Adam Bede, in 1859. In her writing, she was chiefly preoccupied with moral problems, especially the moral development and psychological analysis of her characters. She is known for her sensitive and honest depiction of life and people in works that are acclaimed as classics.
