Godfrey and Silas were both self-imposed loners Godfrey had to keep his first wife a secret from everybody especially Nancy Lammeter This meant that he had to keep more than a polite distance away from her His brother the theif and all around scoundrel blackmailed poor Godfrey to keep his secrets hidden Silas was betrayed by his whole previous life The church had let him down and his closest freind had robbed him This supposed friend even set him up for an accusation of murder To top it all off Silas wife was taken by this wolf in sheeps clothing This type of betrayal makes a person hate humanity especially in such a close-knit community Silas moved himself to the fringes of civilization He cared for no one and wanted no one to care for him Both of their attitudes changed when Eppie arrived Godfrey knew that he could marry Nancy now because his old wife had died This also showed how shallow he was Godfrey thought that with money he could win back his daughter but that was not the case Yet at the final moments of this confrontation Eppies arrival unleashed a side of Silas not seen for fifteen years He became a caring human being again Silas took great steps to insure Eppies happiness even going to church again and associating with the other villagers While the Church part was somewhat bewildering to him the villagers were much worse It took him months to understand what they were saying and then months more to be able to hold a conversation with them Yet through the growth of Eppie something took over Silas He made more friends and worked less on his loom The loom was the symbol of his old life the time when he could understand nor trust any one Breaking away from the loom Demonstrated that he was human again and could be a part of society too
