The Penguin English Library Edition of Silas Marner by George Eliot"God gave her to me because you turned your back upon her, and He looks upon her as mine: you've no right to her!"Wrongly accused of theft and exiled from a religious community many years before, the embittered weaver Silas Marner lives alone in Raveloe, living only for work and his precious hoard of money.

But when his money is stolen and an orphaned child finds her way into his house, Silas is given the chance to transform his life.

His fate, and that of the little girl he adopts, is entwined with Godfrey Cass, son of the village Squire, who, like Silas, is trapped by his past.

Silas Marner, George Eliot's favourite of her novels, combines humour, rich symbolism and pointed social criticism to create an unsentimental but affectionate portrait of rural life. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
