One day Silas's money is stolen by Dunstan Cass, a dissolute son of Squire Cass, the town's leading landowner. The loss of his gold drives Silas into a deep gloom, until one day a little golden-haired orphan girl wanders into his home to change his life forever. Set at the beginning of the industrial revolution, Eliot weaves a telling social commentary into an inspiring tale of love and redemption.
