George Eliot's novel "Silas Marner" is a testament to the saying that "good things come to those who wait." Silas Marner, the namesake of the work, is a humble weaver who has been virtually outcast from his former neighborhood town of Lantern Yard based on the untrue claims that he was a thief. He comes to the town of Raveloe, where he continues his trade, yet his story intertwines with that of two brothers, Godfrey and Dunsey, the latter of whom is a conniving trickster. Silas, having little money to begin with, becomes obsessed with counting his small fortune that he keeps hidden in his cottage, and through a series of events involving the two brothers, that money is stolen, devastating Silas.
