Publisher's Summary

Falsely accused of a crime and betrayed by his closest friend, the weaver Silas Marner has been hoarding his earnings for 15 years. Distanced from his religious community, he has devoted himself to his work and taken pleasure only in counting his coins. Then in a single day, his gold is stolen and a lovely child appears on his doorstep. As he changes his life to meet the irresistible needs of the child, Marner accepts that the loss of the gold was a necessary exchange for the child. A living, shining treasure replaces his hollow material wealth, reawakening his humanity and helping him to rediscover a place among his fellow man. Many years later, when circumstances reveal the now-grown child's true identity, the strength of the bond that has flourished between her and the old man proves stronger that the attractions of wealth.
