Silas Marner: Novel Summary: Chapter 15
Select a Chapter:
This chapter is very short and uneventful; it simply says that no one in the town seems to miss Dunstan or think something is peculiar about his absence. Godfrey’s path to happiness is unblocked and despite his double-life he will continue to ensure Eppie’s well-being. "That was a father’s duty," he thinks to himself vainly.
One ironic note: it’s interesting how one member of the Cass family took Silas’s gold while the other gave Silas his daughter. It seems that now the Cass family will live in financial luxury while Silas experiences true fulfillment by raising a daughter.
