Silas Marner is the name of a classic novel by George Eliot, and the name of the main character. An outline of the story is below...
Set in the earlier years of the 19th century (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/19th_century), Silas Marner was a weaver and had been since a young man. While living in this industrial town, he was also a highly thought of member of a little Dissenting church. Silas was engaged to be married to a female member of the church and thought his future happiness assured. However, due to the betrayal of a fellow parishioner, who blamed him for a theft that he did not commit, Silas was expelled from the congregation. He found out later that his former fiancee married the man who had betrayed him. Later on, he went to settle in the village of Raveloe, where he lived as a recluse who existed only for work and his precious hoard of money until that money was stolen by a son of Squire Cass, the town's leading land owner, causing him to become heartbroken. Soon, however, an orphaned child came to Raveloe. She was not known by the people there, but she was really the child of Godfrey Cass, the eldest son of the local Squire. Because the mother was a woman of low birth, Godfrey had refused to clarify her as his wife, and the woman, Molly, went to seek out Godfrey for revenge, but she never made it there and died on the way. Silas named the child Eppie (after his deceased sister Hephzibah) and changed his life completely. Symbolically, Silas lost his material gold only to have it replaced by the golden-haired Eppie. Later in the book, the gold is found and restored. Godfrey wanted to take her back when she was a young woman but she refused to go back with him and his second wife, Nancy Lammeter. At the end, Eppie married a local boy, Aaron, son of Dolly Winthrop.
:) CAROLINE J- thankyou for that that was interesting to know i would never have known , i might have to track the book down so if we ever get asked about it ill have an idea thanks heaps.
It's a good book, also made into a movie-although it might be very hard to find...
I liked the book too and Silas has been one of my fave names since. My husband hates it though.
I like Silas Frederick - to me there are too many s sounds in Silas Thomas.
i think so too, it maybe Silas Frederick
