Silas Marner

Silas Marner


by George Eliot

Silas Marner Conclusion Summary

  • Spring in Raveloe is the best time for weddings, so naturally Eppie chooses to be married in the spring. Nancy buys her a white cotton dress with tiny pink flowers.
  • Godfrey leaves town so he doesn't have to go (way to be mature about it), but everyone else thinks the wedding is beautiful.
  • Eppie is happy too: in fact, as she enters her garden, enlarged by Mr. Cass, she says to Silas that no one could possibly be happier.
  • Aww. But, let's be honest, also a little barf.
