Silas Marner is one of the biggest George Eliot best sellers. This story revolves around the character of a weaver, Silas Marner, who lives away from the society in isolation with his weavings and his money. One day, when, his stash of money gets stolen, and a little-orphaned girl finds her way, only then does Silas Marner understand the power of love. Overwhelmed by the feelings of fatherhood, Marner somehow finds his way to his redemption.
