About This Book
A stranger with a troubled past, Silas Marner is new to the town of Raveloe.
He cares only for money, which he makes by weaving cloth. Totally alone, shunned by everyone in town, Silas's only comfort is his pile of gold. But when the gold is stolen, Silas's world turns upside down. And little does he know that the crime is only one in a chain of events that will change his life forever.
