Editorial Reviews

Donna Barkman gives a lucid performance of Silas Marner, the classic Victorian novel by George Eliot. Her euphonious voice complements the expansive prose and the turbulent plot line. The title character is a linen weaver who is falsely accused of theft and loses his love to the man who framed him. He leaves his northern English town for the Midlands in search of a new start. There he suffers additional injustices, but just as he is about to slip into complete despair, an accident brings happiness into his life.

Publisher's Summary

In this humorous, richly symbolic, meticulously plotted novel, a solitary and simple-hearted weaver has worked his loom in Raveloe and devoted himself to amassing a hoard of golden guineas. However, his life is changed forever when tragedy intervenes and he finds himself responsible for the care of a small golden-haired girl.
