An extraordinary story of love and hope set in the early years of the 19th century. Silas Marner is wrongly accused and expelled from his community. He becomes a recluse who lives only to work and hoard his meagre pay. He seems trapped in this small dark life until the arrival of a young orphan sets in motion changes with unknowable consequences. The story was adapted by Steve Martin in his 1994 movie A Simple twist of Fate.
The novel tells the story of Tess whose fate is changed when her ne'er-do-well father tries to improve the family fortune via a misguided association with a local well to do family. Hardy's writing produces such empathy for Tess that one is compelled to continue reading even though it is unbearable to imagine where the story will go.

Historical fiction novel. The story begins with an actual historical tragedy - the 1672 lynching of the Dutch Grand Pensionary (roughly equivalent to a modern Prime Minister) Johan de Witt and his brother Cornelis, by a wild mob of their own countrymen - one of the most painful episodes in Dutch history, described by Dumas with a dramatic intensity.
Call of the Wild is London's most read book. The protagonist is a dog, but the themes and action are quite dark as it tells of the misadventures of 'Buck' and the breakdown of his domestication after he is kidnapped and sold as a sled dog.
