The noted English actress Freda Dowie (famed from television shows such as Upstairs, Downstairs and Lovejoy) turns in a fine performance in her narration of George Eliot's classic tale. A weaver who has been exiled from his religious community on false charges, Silas Marner cares only for his growing collection of gold coins, until they are stolen and replaced by a golden-haired child. Against the odds, the pair form a powerful bond that transcends money and the petty village characters around them. A tale about the redemptive power of love and the importance of social responsibility.
