Silas Marner

Silas Marner

by George Eliot

Silas Marner Chapter 20 Summary

  • At home, Godfrey admits that Silas was right: he turned away the blessing, and now he's got to suffer for it. They agree to keep the secret until Godfrey dies, since it won't do anyone any good to know about it.
  • They figure that Eppie's engaged to Aaron Winthrop, who's a good fellow. They resolve to be better people, and Nancy admirably restrains herself.
