By George Eliot (Exploring Economics Units 1-3)
Set in an out-of-the-way English village, this novel has a gentle pace and a somber mood. The main characters guard secrets which isolate them from healthy relationships. The unexpected arrival of a small child teaches the title character and his community the power of giving and receiving love.
