Silas Marner had very dark hair, eyes, and a very pale face. which made the people think he was ghost like.
" Silas Marner was accused of killing a older sick man. But really it was his "best friend" who killed the man and set it up to seem like it was Silas. Due to this Silas lost his respect and was kicked out of the church and Latern Yards.
Going Back to church
Dunstan and Godfrey need money, so Dunstan went looking for money and came across Silas Marner's house while Silas wasn't there and stole it. Silas Marner felt like his life was over and there was no hope to live.
Silas Marner found Eppie New years Eve on his door step. At first he thought it was his missing gold or it was a dream of his sister. then he realized she came to him for a reason and he would do anything for her.
Because he wanted the best for Eppie he started taking her to church. After going for a while he went back to God and later went back to Latern Yards to question his pastor on some spiritual topics.
Silas Marner doesn't live for his money anymore he lives to give Eppie the best life, because she is now his treasure. Even though he got kicked out of his church at the end he turns back to God due to Eppie. Due to his money being stolen he became more social and then with Eppie he really became more involved in society. So he is no longer a hermit.
